My son on the Olympic and any of it and -- -- my and that's that they can and able to really -- yourself a lot X gamers.
-- you know their their they really -- -- the teenage set but he can't break out of that.
How you been able to do because I gotta be honest with you I thought it was fifteen minutes later in your fifteen minutes -- thing I want is an awesome for a little while and we'll never hear from them but that hasn't been the case you're -- fully.
You know it's been fun I mean -- what was strange is before the Olympics and the united are ready had a certain amount of success directs -- certain games and let's get recognize now here and then.
Things are just slowly going from -- think Olympics was just something that -- it all over the edge and they're ready afterward was like Wolf Blitzer big drink deal going to be limited -- and -- had these deals going into it.
So it just really.
-- blew that whole situation up and I've -- -- really work with the sponsors that have been do amazing things like video game and the clothing line.
I'm gonna get to that that the Yugoslavia game and -- that it's cool you.
Played a big role in developing it when you talk -- sponsors is that you do you have a big team with you that the hurricane -- -- your image because image.
Image is everything that was I Agassi violated you know quietly went with the real does appear yet that's unfortunately you don't have.
Well at the right thing you know calm act split you do you handle a lot of yourself or.
-- -- -- -- -- actually it's it's it's a team I would say myself and my brother -- Brothers he's the one that I've gone to for everything in.
He's an amazingly talented artist so.
Any any shirt or jacket that you see that's out on the hill it's got my name on it is a drawing of his is that this year actually is the targets -- that.
He drew the plaque -- -- and everything and we've been doing it together so you know who who better to.
You know speak my voice and my own brother.
It's an amazing though what a happy you know -- come of this whole little underground industry snowboarding skateboarding and people don't -- actually own boards and they still want to Wear the clothes.
These figuring target thanks -- You know we -- I spoke with -- Garrett at the recently and he's done the same thing that -- clothing lines and all the stuff what what do you think attributes.
But what's phenomenon all about you not -- wanna -- skateboarding close more than they want our football jerseys bullets.
I think it's more than just a sport it's it's it's a lifestyle the culture I mean it's it's.
A group of musicians and artists and in skaters and and kind of this free spirited people that are all kind of doing the same things -- How to point where.
You know skateboarding wasn't even cool in schools now it's -- -- -- you show up injury issues and -- like.
-- in California I mean.
You can't go around without some species on something like that but yes it's it's a whole like lifestyle -- Following that instead of just this whole thing I mean I know people -- just like to go to the mountains and hang out.
And do all that stuff but it's it's what you do for fun with your friends like acting like we're -- gonna Gasquet or are gonna go -- and it you know together and do the things that's definitely.
Grown from what it used to be -- we weren't even allowed on mountains you elect and crazy punks.
Don't go skiing it's -- orders -- out -- -- video -- second one from Ubisoft by the way.
Coming out here this month.
It's all white snowboarding world stage for the Nintendo Wii so easy they're yelling at the -- at the stage.
-- -- -- On being the greatest part about this -- I was reading about it says its focus on intense topic to outlet that items second.
But you never -- the second they had their day in your life a minute in your life like you're having intense -- but -- -- -- -- out there and shred it and when you're done you're laughing and you know -- by that everybody looks intense about that you know it's funny that's probably the worst.
Game facing bonus season on smiling that that the -- -- -- that means I'm I'm.
I'm comfortable and confident feeling it's like things are -- -- our sports not really that kind of rivalry type you know again you jock mentality -- that sense like.
Everybody's friends of the top it's just -- you where everything inside you don't really.
-- show how you feel good and when I'm up there joking around and have fun that's like my way of of letting things can happen because rate when I try to focus and train and really like him train today -- nothing back -- -- did you resist it and what those silly you kind of had the lead of of -- writing you mentioned Agassi earlier.
He's he's a good friend of mine -- and I was sitting down with him talking on point and -- describing something -- think when it.
Listen we just trained extremely hard you know what they just trained harder than you again -- I've I had -- described in the that's not how words can mean I can see is.
That's how to act like -- hit the ball harder than this guy some and beat him.
But for our sport like I'm not I'm not the biggest.
Guy -- -- I'm I'm strong in certain ways but it's a lot of mindset a lot of like how you think about it how he approaches situations.
You've made -- an eye on a year round thing -- because you go from snowboarding to -- Edward and and so.
This is how you -- -- created this little empire viewers really nag at video games you have clothes and what's next where you go from here.
God says there's plenty thinks the I get surprised because of years something pops up and most recent is you know the Olympics -- and couple months from I start my -- -- December.
Her like nine through -- -- and copper mountain Colorado now what about the demands on you because I'm sure your first Olympics -- -- hands on any police opened Vancouver yeah I you know you're gonna every night you're gonna need some of -- and in the and flat -- Still don't know I can't see any men and not on an ounce of pity here feel -- sorry for the guy -- It got tonight and I added how -- -- we're not winning gold because they're distracted by other things but hello.
-- this had happened think that I.
And I rally feel like it's it's an amazing thing where he might sport some might -- from -- yes it.
It's it's funny to put it in that term but yeah its my way of getting away from it thinks that the more enemies that you and one of the -- meetings and business meetings in game development toxin I mean.
We'll pick it out.
Fabric -- -- I think it's an incident he -- Once they get to the mound I get to the rant it's like this is the easy part you know I had I understand that you're lucky you got that I'm not -- it's kind of -- -- thank each and primal screaming there yeah that's exactly thank -- dad and -- -- If so what what advice to kids coming up the rank and did anyone make a life that this -- -- -- I'm an I honestly say this you know have fun I -- -- is -- local contests and was willing noticed by different you know groups and I was looking at the I was sponsored when I was seven that had a very young age has.
Burton's no words had just started kids' clothes I wasn't that I was the coolest on the mountain -- -- me now at this point.
I at this point I was 77 when he first -- on a series delivers -- He's got -- -- I tell to have fun you know I mean I've.
Like -- -- -- that try to train focus -- enough nothing really comes of it you know I have to wait so I'm having fun and not thinking about it and -- myself and then.
I can do so I think a lot of kids get focused on getting sponsors and giving money in free stuff and all these things and then it just focus on why you started the first places have.
On the game is Shaun White snowboarding world stage for the Nintendo let's -- get -- Ubisoft is the the name of the software -- by the way it's the second shot went snowboarding road trip to great commercials but the way is also available on the good stuff good luck in the Olympics and -- that you want couple.
