2010: This kid is a beast. From the frozen flatlands of the American Midwest—Richmond, Minnesota to be exact—Dan Brisse moved to Utah to follow his dream of becoming a pro snowboarder. Armed with an unshakable Midwest work ethic and serious rail skills, Brisse got to work learning how to ride the real mountains of the Wasatch and Uinta ranges. While developing his backcountry landing gear, Dan also continued to seek out brutal street terrain. With a penchant for big, consequential rails and massive urban gaps, Brisse has put himself squarely at the center of the urban progressive movement. At the same time, his powerful jumping abilities combine to make him an all-terrain force to be reckoned with. And despite his growing reputation as one of the best, Dan remains humble and hard working. Because of all these factors, as a pro rider he’s the full package, as was witnessed in his breakout video part in Neverland, which was his first year filming with Absinthe. Control and power in all environments, this is Brisse’s contribution. Dan returned again in 2010 for NowHere more focused than ever in his quest to deliver the best film part that he possibly can.
