Introducing Russell Winfield, OG Pro Snowboarder from the early 90’s, native New Yorker, and original team rider for RIDE Snowboards. As the first African American pro snowboarder Russell has always been about growing the culture of snowboarding and expanding its reach. Growing the culture of snowboarding not for some, but all. Russell & the Ride Snowboard team are hyped to introduce their latest project.
Russell Winfield: "Through snowboarding, I was blessed to build a friendship with the superpower who was Virgil Abloh. Virgil and I shared the same passion for snowboarding and growing the culture, I’m very excited to share this special project he and I had been working on before his passing. Proceeds from this board are being donated to two organizations whose mission align with Virgil and my vision. Hoods To Woods, a mentoring nonprofit in Brooklyn introducing teens to the outdoors through snowboarding, and Virgil’s Postmodern Scholarship Fund."
