Fuckin Mac Eckstrand……. I mean what to say?  Kids fucking gnarly man, total wild card. Dude is hard charge all the time.  Tech- ish rider but styled loosely.  I remember at the end of last year Mac showed up to Hawk Island in a poncho holding a brew and a giant pencil? He slammed that can and gapped a rail to another with break neck style, I mean there really isn’t another visual I can give you to describe his riding. Whatever it is he owns it well.  Maybe too well, Mac just earned himself a spot on the already bad boy Flanel crew. I kinda feel like those guys just hit “hide your kids hide your wife “status with Mac joining their ranks… Ha, I’m kidding, but no seriously… hide your wife. Mac’s a cool dude and a killer shred and we are stoked to have him as this week’s staff pick.

Give us some info on you. Anything you want to talk about snowboard related.

I’ve lived in Kalamazoo since 1996, which is a really strange/awesome city. The best thing about snowboarding in Michigan is Cannonsburg, I’ve met a lot of cool people there over the past few years. It’s probably one of the happiest places to snowboard, smiles all day. Mrs. Buttersworth syrup is better than Aunt Jemima. Speaking of syrup, if any fine young women would like to go to Bob Evans, share a 3 course breakfast, and talk about the finer things in life, I’m all about it.

Spencer filmed a bunch of stuff at Hawk Island. Brad Beadling has been my favorite person to snowboard with forever; he filmed all of the stuff in Kalamazoo. The homiest of homies. Wait Anderson, aka late Anderson aka Nate Anderson filmed the stuff at bittersweet. Thank you to everyone!
