But there are some great new riders coming up that would really benefit from having the old crew around. To learn more about the next few kids I'm going to be mentioning, just click their names to see their facebook pages.
I would say that at this point guys like Chris Rosner, Stanton High, Mark Gomez, and Zack Bright are the veterans of the new school guys coming up. At this point you have seen all these guys in magazines, videos, and TV. And this group is killing it and progressing all the time. Those guys are the next generation of premier level professional freeriders...but there is already a new generation hot on their heels. Wesley Krautkramer (16) and Christian Young (12) (don't believe the age on his facebook page ;) unless you are an 18 year old girl or harbor patrol!)
Both these guys are killing it, and they are just getting started! They both have very supportive parents behind them and are really good kids. The industry people need to take note of these guys, they are the future of our sport and we need to do what we can to keep them pumped on it. They also can do a lot to pique their friends interest in freeride.
I'm looking forward to helping all these guys develop and improve their riding skills over the next few years. It is an exciting time to be in
