Ian Smith

Ian is one of our Colorado native riders. He grew up in Evergreen and began boarding at age 9. He immediately fell in love with the sport and has never looked back. He is the youngest of 3 brothers, which came with it’s fair share of relentless beatings. Ian wouldn’t have traded it for the world though. His brothers (Eric and Scott) inspired him to push his limits, making Ian one of the most talented and diverse riders in the world. After high school, Ian followed the snow, moving first to Steamboat, then to Summit County. Ian currently calls Breckenridge home, “Although it’s not the best terrain in the world, it does have an unbeatable deal for park riding”. Ian always rides in a positive mind frame, which explains why he is so stoked everyday.
