D. Walsh Comments On His DC Ad


More Devun Walsh!

Avant-garde, Canada represent, Devun Walsh gives on-camera insight to the jump, the trick, the day he got the shot for board sponsor DC. Taking on a keen angle and approach, DC Snow, is tying their current magazine print campaign to behind-the-scenes reflection—on video—from the riders in each ad, to date. Iikka Backstrom is another featured team shred whose "More! Ad" runs on the revamped super site.

Devun reigns AMAZING. His smooth, effortless style, and big, progressive talents have and continue to totally inspire. Why, look no further than Burton's Tadashi Fuse, transplanted from Japan to Canada, for such apparent evidence. And I still remember, when at TransWorld SNOWboarding we put together his like 18-page interview just stacked with banger shots. Then, the very next season, another hot mess of pics came in, prompting a Forward with a thematic secondary title of "Ruthless and Toothless."

If you haven't seen Dev's past greatest hits (and they keep coming), like The Resistance and True Life, or Lil' Bastards for the comedy and camaraderie of The Wildcats litter, consider this a call to arm your DVD player now.
