With a hail storm of notifications across all social media platforms the snowboarding world learned yesterday of Noah Salasnek’s passing. As a true style icon who blossomed from skateboarding in the late 80’s Noah defined and created the blunted influences that can still be seen in todays riding.
Noah pioneered a perspective that paid homage to skateboarding in snowboarding’s second generation. With talent, determination, and a willingness to be his best Noah grew to the height of his career as both a freestyle and big mountain rider; a very difficult task even by today’s standards.
May the lips be fresh, landings soft, and pow light.
R.I.P. Noah Salasnek
