"Survival in my mind is adapting to our surroundings and finding ways to rise up through the dark times in order to find happiness." - Justin
With nearly two decades under his belt being apart of the Tactics family, Justin is no stranger to adapting to new environments, industry trends, and shifting weather patterns here in the Pacific Northwest. The creative mindset and optimism he possesses for all aspects of his life shine whether he's chasing a fresh line on the mountain or laying down the first touch of ink at the tattoo parlor. What originated as a project to highlight his adaptation to new terrain in the Washington Cascades after leaving his longtime home of Mt.Bachelor, turned into a glance at what determination, creativity and unbound passion for snowboarding looks like despite all the ups and downs of this past season. Scroll down to take a look at some of the photos from last winter and hear what it took to keep Justin and videographer Colby Mesick motivated and inspired.
