Todd Richards On The Hot Seat

Todd Richards has a lot going on in his life at the moment. With a new board sponsor (Rossignol), a career pulling him in all kinds of new directions, his plate’s full and spilling onto the floor. He’s also kind of an athletic phenomenon. He went from being a dominating pipe-guy to being an all-around ripping guy, just because he set his mind to it. Rails, halfpipe, or kickers, Todd makes it all look, oh, so simple.

This last year alone, he stood on one or more podiums for big air, halfpipe and slopestyle at contests like the X-Games, the World Snowboarding Champions, and various Vans Triple Crown events. He also won best Overall Rider, voted by his peers at the TransWorld Snowboarding Team Challenge, and the Viewer’s Choice award at The Mt. Dew ESPN Awards. Not bad for a kid from the little town of Paxton, Massachusetts. Is there something you’ve always wanted to ask Todd? Now’s your chance—don’t be shy! Todd rides for Rossignol, Quiksilver, DC, Clive, Nixon, Oakley, RDS, The Familie, and Pro-Tec.
