In nonchalant fashion, Darrell Mathes is one of the most influential minds in snowboarding. But he’ll play it off if you ask him about it. Through hard work and humility, the Portland, Oregon native entered the consciousness of snowboarding’s movers and shakers during street snowboarding’s proliferation in the early 2000s, particularly with his appearance in the breakthrough movie, Love/Hate. Darrell can now claim over a dozen video parts across multiple production companies, where his easy style and thoughtful trick selection earned him a reputation as one of snowboarding’s most accomplished street riders. However, it’s his contributions to the culture and industry that are fortifying his legacy within a short list of individuals that have dedicated everything to the lifestyle he loves.
