Duthie's first taste of snowboarding was on a stormbound Cairngorm Mountain in 1999. Years of punishment at the hands of Bellahouston's Dendix dry slope followed, with seasons in France and New Zealand not far behind. He retains a misplaced affection for drymat, and considers the invention of Snowflex to be right up there with penicillin and the lightbulb. A contributor since 2010, Duthie eventually joined Whitelines full-time in 2013, and is now Deputy Editor for all things UK & Gear-related across Whitelines, Onboard and Snowboarder MBM. As both a shaky snowboarder and cack-handed homebrewer, he spends most of his time worrying about gravity.
