Episode # 58
 
I was first introduced to Nick and his twin brother Chris by my friend Justin Majeczky who was filming the Nick and Chris in the Tahoe area about six years ago. He said, "you should sponsor these dudes, they’re winning every contest out here."
 
Since then, Nick and I have stayed in touch, but mostly through the internet or text. We’d occasionally get to chat a bit in person at Seven Springs if our paths crossed, but I didn't really get to know Nick well until I drove across country with him last fall - we get into that road trip, his relationship with his twin brother, the secret to instagram success in snowboarding and a very sobering story about being jailed in Japan for 27 days.
 
As a quick note, as you’ll hear at the start of the podcast - this was recorded during the first Podcast Camp at Seven Springs - link to David Zemens article on the camp. If you have interest in attending next year’s TNSP Camp - please listen to the end of this episode for more info.

I caught up with part of the gang at lunch and made them pose for a group picture. It was hard to get a couple of them to come out of the bar...

“A lot of people go through life and they feel lonely, but they don’t admit it…”
"Knowing somebody so well that you know everything, just by one quick glance.”
“My problem is learning just to be ok with being you… as long as you didn’t die you learned something.”
“I hate money… We can’t eat it, we can’t roll a joint with it.. (DJ - I think we can)”
“The first fifty to one hundred videos I put out didn’t get a lot of views.”
“I’m not going to warm up with a back 10 and then go do a back 3…”
“You do a back 10 perfect and it feels like a straight air…. I consider it a petty safe and easy trick”
