You’ll find Flaska furthest from the scene. He’s got a lot of love for his dog and wife. He likes to spend his free time camping and finding new places to explore. If there’s water involved, he’s in.

Flaska snowboards because he believes that its a release from everything. “Its something I can do that completely scares the shit out of me and nobody else is in control. How else can you travel across NATURAL terrain that fast without a motor?”

Preferred Terrain: Street riding for sure, but in 2014 I was lucky enough to be taken to the backcountry with Simon Chamberlain and this opened me up to a new world! He took me under his wing and made me learn a lot of new things. Special thanks to him!!!

Bluebird pow day or perfectly groomed park? Bluebird pow day for sure! Especially with all the climate change stuff going on these days, better enjoy while it lasts.

Favorite Trick: Backside 180 Switch Nose Press

Shred Heroes: Simon Chamberlain, JP Walker, Keegan Valaika, Dillon Ojo, and all the others who inspired me in the past few years!

Who’s in you crew? Anto Chamberland, Pat PH, Jacko, Tim Bouvette, David Fisher, Jay Gallant, Simon Martel, Jay Cloutier, Mat Bonin and many more homies!

Plans for next season? Early in the season I’ll help Anto with his X-Games real street part, then I’ll hit the streets with the crew and try to get as many shots as possible. I will be working on a project with Pat P.H so we will try to get that completed. I might also spend a month in Nelson, British Columbia.

Shout-outs? My parents, all my friends, Karl Morrisseau, Seb Gagnon, Chris Gougeon, Mob, and Gab Belanger.
