Rome SDS Welcomes Rusty Ockenden

rome_rusty.jpg

Rusty made the move to Whistler, BC right out of high school to snowboard amazing terrain every day. Like an incoherent Intervention subject, Rusty was officially addicted to powder. To support his habit he got a night job as a bartender so he’d be able to save up and buy a beat-up truck and sled to get himself in the backcountry where some of the best moments of his life have, and continue to happen.

Rusty’s been filming with Sandbox since day one, and grabbed the ender part in this last seasons’ film, Now You Know, while also putting together a part in F__K It.

“I love filming and riding pow, I have a truck that works, a lady to do The Underwear Dance to, and I just bought a bed from IKEA…. I'm so stoked now to get on Rome and can’t wait to toss my body through the air’ – Rusty Ockenden

Welcome to the team Rusty. We’re stoked to have you. Keep an eye out for Rusty in The Shred Remains, Fall of 2011.
