Where to begin? Do you live under a rock in a country that has never seen snow nor the Internet? Because that’s about what it would take to avoid knowing who Devun Walsh is.
Devun’s career has seen 40+ banger video parts, all of which were strong enough to be opening or closing. Other resume bullet points include: Forum dream team/original 8; Wildcats founder; DC heavyweight; Webisode series innovator; and quite possibly the biggest, cleanest, and most stylish backcountry snowboarder in history.
Devun has no quit in him, because he’s still a perennial MVP contender amongst a generation of pro shreds that have attempted to model their riding styles from his.
A snowboarder summarized simply, Devun is a rider that would appear on any conceivable snowboard hall-of-fame rider lists, no matter how long or short. So where does the success all come from? Maybe it’s as simple as this: Devun has no quit in him, because he’s still a perennial MVP contender amongst a generation of pro shreds that have attempted to model their riding styles from his.
Maybe that’s why so many industry and media heavies know Devun Walsh as the true snowboarder’s snowboarder; he’s a man of the people, and he doesn’t act or regard himself as more important, deserving, or accomplished than anyone else in a room.
Many would say that Dev’s humility is a huge part of his success. Others might say that a more ostentatious style might have elevated his notoriety to more of the masses. But none would argue that he’s ever failed to be true to snowboarding, himself and all of those around him. His stories will undoubtedly be told for years and years and years to come.
