I’m Sam Turnbull, what do you wanna know? So basically it was like this. I was born way back when the music was good and aliens and gypsies stalked the earth. I grew up in the countryside playing with my friends, and most of the time I felt pre­tty good about life. Then one day, I discovered what snowboarding was and OMG! I swear, life was never quite the same after that! I got really into snowboarding and I’ve pre­tty much stuck with it ever since. These days my two favourite things in the world are sexy girls ;-) and snowboarding . But I’ve never quite forgo­ en about this onetime I got outsmarted by a monkey (that was embarrassing) . If I could bring one extinct thing back to life I reckon it would be Michael Jackson (legend) and if I could get rid of one thing for good, I reckon it would be your face. My ideal day would be wake up, head out to the gym and then spend a few hours ripping up the fields and jumps around the farm on my dirt-bike , before going to work. Hah just kidding and then finishing things off in town with my mates chillaxing. And that’s the world according to me! Sam Turnbull! What else can I say?
