The Life and Times of Dave Downing—The Bomb Hole Episode 73


A must watch for any fan of snowboarding. History, current happenings, and boarding through the eyes of someone that has seen it all. Just listen and enjoy. 

From the banter boys at The Bomb Hole:
For the past 32 years Dave has left his mark in snowboarding starting as a rep then going pro and producing 24 video parts moving on to a position in sales and marketing all for Burton Snowboards. In this episode we talk early day’s of filming video parts, the t-shirt do rag, Nixon Jibfest, filming in Alaska, Craig Kelly, Jake Burton, how to keep shredding as you get older, surfing, split boarding and so much more. Dave is one of the only pro riders to start as a rep then go on to be pro but it seem’s like his backward approach worked out great as his life after being pro seemed like a natural transition for him as he carved out his own path at Burton. Join us as we sit down with Dave and talk about his amazing 32 year and still counting career in Snowboarding on this weeks episode of The Bomb Hole.
