Devun Walsh is a snowboarding legend who first came to prominence in the early 1990s with his exploits on Bear Mountain in California. His reputation grew after a stand out performance in "A Young Brown Walsh" - Shorty's 1997 team video - and, still as a teenager, soon after that he signed for one of the most influential snowboard teams of all time - the Forum 8. He has since produced an impressive body of film parts - some even exist on VHS (ask your parents). After the Forum 8 team ceased to exist, Walsh became the main man on the DC snowboard team. Although now having passed through the 'Whisky Years' and become a more mature family man, Walsh's priorities are still centred around riding, filming and helping to inspire the next generation of snowboarders. Born in North Vancouver on the 3rd September 1976, Walsh is now ranked as one of the top ten influential riders in history. On top of his natural ability and many years of hard work, his humility is also said to have played a hugely important role in his success. Walsh is much more of a backcountry rider, only joining up for a few of the major competitions. Having made his name before many of his fellow riders were dressing themselves.
