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.

Duthie eventually joined Whitelines full-time in 2013 following a few years' freelance work, and is now Deputy Editor for all things UK and gear across Whitelines, Onboard and Snowboarder MBM. As both a shaky snowboarder and cack-handed homebrewer, he spends most of his time worrying about gravity.
