OK Draplin

So this cat hails from the Mitten and he's been holding it down for years. I first caught his talents in a Midwest Mag called PoK from the late 90's. He is a sincere Midwesterner with a live tank full of talent and experience. He's touched a lot in the world of snowboarding from his countless perches. If you have some time go to his site, read some stuff, and get some Field Notes. Man he sent me some of these a few years back, I had some of the best quotes of my life (Brad Alband) in there only to lose them sledding to my friends house after a post event party. I walked up and down that street looking for that book.

Just have a look at some of the snowboard related Client he's had or has.

List of Clients
Ally Distribution (Portland-based action sport flick distributor.)
Coal Headwear (Seattle, Wash.)
Forum Snowboards (Board graphics, man, board graphics.)
Gnu Snowboards (Seattle-based hucksters.)
Grenade Gloves (Mammoth Lakes, Calif / Portland, Ore.)
LIb Tech Snowboards (Bunch of Northwest hippies.)
Snowboard Magazine (Hailey, Ida.)
Union Binding Co. (Seattle, Wash. / Colico, Italy)

Aaron's another in a long line of Midwesterners shaping snowboarding these days. Know your roots, kids!
