COMUNE snowboarding team manager Luke MacMaster interviews Tyler Ashbee.
LM: what’s it like being Canadian?
TA: It's good, it seems like we have some good stuff here; back bacon, poutine, health care, strong beer, etc. But we’re lacking on other things like guns, cheap beer, cheap phone/internet plans, cheap food (cheap everything) and the US gets double downs; hot dog stuffed crust pizza and other "limited time" food years before Canada sees them.
LM: In Canadian strip clubs is it acceptable to "make it rain" with loonies and toonies?
TA: Only to the bad ones, it’s more like stoning them, but they make a profit.
LM: Other than snowboarding?
TA; Skateboarding, Fishing, Camping…
LM: In 5 words or less describe a normal day in the life of Tyler Ashbee.
TA: Eat, Film, Beers, Hottub, Beers…
LM: Music on a session? Or no music on the session? If so what?
TA: On hill yes, at a spot no…usually for park laps my playlist is a mix between Gang Starr to Black Angels…lots of indie stuff, grunge rock and hip hop, depending on my mood.
LM: What did you think about "the art of flight" film by Travis Rice and Redbull?
TA: Money…and if it was necessary to have a helicopter film another helicopter while filming a jump for most of the shots.
LM: Would you ever ride for MONSTER?
TA: how many 0's are in the paycheck? Everyone can be bought.
LM: Have you ever drank a MONSTER? If so, how did it make you feel?
TA: Yeah, with vodka…kind of a non-drowsy drunk. I'm not too into them, just too much chemicals which just fakes your body into being alert, then you crash.
LM: Top 3 snowboarders no one has ever heard of?
TA: Craig Gouweloos (vimeo.com/26499499), Adam Franks (vimeo.com/51890952), Cameron Veenstra (vimeo.com/50272995)
LM: favorite piece in the COMUNE line?
TA: Lindon Premium Denim
LM: Last major slam?
TA: The other week at the Empire Backyard Jam…tried to go from the close out to the end of the DFD…got caught under the rail and slid straight into my hamstring…couldn't walk for a few days but it’s all good now…worst charlie horse I've ever had.
LM: What do you think about that small stance trend?
TA: Mines kind of small itself, but not the kind you notice and just feel like the person is standing straight up. If the person can do tricks with it and it makes them look good, I’m down.
LM: Being Canadian, what’s your view of ‘MERICA?
TA: Some of the best places I have visited are in the States, plus I'm half American so it's not too bad. I do need to get my citizenship sorted out for it though.
LM: Anything else?
TA: Lost Boys, watch our movie “Halfway to Hell” when its out…hopefully next week, here’s a teaser: (vimeo.com/37328351)
