      It took over two years, but we finally for Noah Salasnek on tape. You can thank Chris Roach for convincing Noah to oblige us. When we met up to shoot the interview at Grass Valley skate park, Noah gave me a box of 21 tapes containing some amazing skate, moto-cross, and snowmobiling footage. I included as much of Noah’s personal archive as possible, but, as long as this episode runs, there just wasn’t room for it all. This one goes out to the Noah nerds out there. Here’s what future legend JP Walker said in his attempt to encapsulate Noah’s beastliness: “Noah was one of the first people to bring a heavy, skate influenced style to snowboarding. The unique thing about that is he backed up all his technical jibbing and spinning with some of the beastliest big mountain lines ever. He could even rip it in the half pipe. In my opinion he is the greatest all round snowboarder that ever lived.”
