Once battling on snowboarding's center stage, Scotty Lago fought tooth and nail to stay in competition with some of snowboarding's heaviest of hitters. He's dueled against Shaun White in the half-pipe. He's rode gnarly back-country lines with Travis Rice and Nicholas Müller. He's filmed A-grade video parts and even made his was onto Jimmy Kimmel. Beside's starting his own board company, Lago Boards, he's turned himself from "retired" snowboarder into full time out-doorsman. If you want to find out why and how Scotty Lago refused to go on Dr. Phil, check out this week's episode of The Bomb Hole!
For this week's episode of The Bomb Hole: Group Chat we've curated a highly coveted and supremely prestigious group of guests. Sam Taxwood, Blake Paul, and Russell Winfield join Chris in the booth to debate some of life's greatest topics: what makes a good snowboard, where to find the best snow, and so much more. We take a deep dive into the most recent X-Games event and discuss some stand-out moments and some questionable decisions by the judges. We hop on calls with two of the gold medalists, Red Gerard and Mia Brookes, to get their perspective and insight into the event. And last, but not least, we invited Todd Richards into the booth to explain to us why snowboard boots suck and what hope we might have in resolving some of these issues.

Is this the latest episode of The Bomb Hole or an audio book narrated by the smoothest voice on planet earth? Well, to be honest, we're not quite sure but either way we definitely like it. Bud Keene has been in the game longer than most and still going strong. He was around when snowboards first got edges and the fins taken off and now he's been coaching the best and making a lasting impact on every rider he works with. He's all about amplitude, going big, and a firm believer that the language we use matters. He's inspirational, he's rough around the edges, and he's wise beyond belief. So sit down, buckle up, and listen to Bud Keene's mesmerizing voice on this episode of The Bomb Hole!
The chance of getting Multiple Sclerosis is approximately .5%, and this week's guest, Taylor Elliott, has received such a diagnosis. Amidst this devastating and life changing news, Taylor began a spiritual journey. Through this process of self discovery she has found some peace with her diagnosis, and using her newfound sobriety, charges head on at the unknown. Now, seemingly, she treats that .5% chance as if she won the lottery; welcoming each new challenge as an opportunity to learn more about herself and strengthen her mind and spirit. Sure, her snowboarding might look different now, but she's doing it, refusing to allow this diagnosis to stop her. She still has goals. She still has dreams. And she will be doing whatever it takes to achieve these aspirations. Find out how, and why, on this week's episode of The Bomb Hole!
