Uploaded by Snowboarder Magazine. Reid Smith approaches snowboarding with a no-holds-barred, hell-for-leather ideology that is largely imitated but rarely innate. Growing up in Jersey and lapping the fast lap of Big Boulder, Pennsylvania’s park, Reid got used to snowboarding fast while making every run count, and if you’ve ever seen him session, it still shows in his riding to this day. Be it a seemingly impossible feature, a nagging injury or pain-in-the-ass security guards trying to kick him out, Reid is 100% determined to get his trick by any means necessary and that’s what makes him so exciting to watch. Last winter Reid was held back a bit by a mid-season injury, but like we just stated, he’s impossible to slow down as he came back and stacked till the final buzzer and his part in BETA will show that so long as he keeps the momentum and his inherent ability to clip up, nothing can stop Reid Smith.
With Beta SNOWBOARDER Magazine has once again assembled an eclectic crew of disrupters who strive to change the game every time they strap in. Volatile and charismatic, this cadre of riders on the come up have cut their teeth following the contest circuit and being featured in online edits.
