Brandon Cocard is lucky enough to call snowboarding his job. Therefore, keeping his game up year round is essential to him as a rising name in the snowboard scene. Working as a snowboard coach in the summer time gives Brandon the opportunity to ride a lot as well as interact with kids who look up to him as an athlete. Sometimes his rewards come in the form of emotions, he explains, "when a camper commits to a trick and lands it, they feel stoked to be here and that's what keeps me coming back each year". We'll take you up to Mt. Hood where Brandon is a coach at Windell's and go inside the campers crew to watch them try new things and push themselves mentally and physically.
