Tyler Murgo

2011 Standout of the Year

Age: 17

Location: Bristol, Rhode Island

Favorite Riding Spot: That’s a tough one… There are tons of rad spots that I’ve been to, but SoCal had some of the gnarliest hills I’ve ever rode.

How did you get started? I read about it in an online snowboarding article when I was thirteen years old and immediately became obsessed. Later that year Santa brought me one for Christmas! Best dude ever.

How long have you been riding? About 5 years

Best Freebord memory: I have countless awesome memories riding and filming around RI with all my homies. The 2010 East Coast Ride was also super sick.

Board settings: I ride a 77cm deck with upgrade edge and center wheels. Trucks loose, bindings ducked, and maximum rocker.
