Curtis Woodman is one of this editor’s personal favourite snowboarders to watch, so it should come as absolutely no surprise that this edit stoked out the entire WL office this morning.

Honestly, what’s not to love about his style? It’s loose as hell, he goes huge and it’s obvious he’s loving every second of it: that face of stoke is present at the bottom of every single run!
He permanently looks just on the edge of control, arms akimbo, but that’s exactly what makes it so compelling to watch – surfing, slashing and laughing his way down the hill.
Back in the day Curtis was one of the jib/contest kids cited as the next big thing, but took a step back from the part in the early 2000s only to return to the fray in 2009 with a blazing powder part in Some Kinda Life. This was followed up in 2013 with the final part for Think Thank‘s Mind The Video Man and a pro deal with Arbor Snowboards.
Over the last couple of seasons he’s continued chasing the white room with an online series entitled Surf The Earth, which is where the majority of this footage is pulled from. Thankfully for fans, it looks like it’ll continue into next year – stay tuned!
