Meet Pete Jannotti. I could say a lot about this fly fishing, bonsai growing shredder, but I’ll let him do the talking.
How long have you been skateboarding? Standing sideways on concrete since ’76. Clay wheels and all.
What about snowboarding? Since ’91. After the first issue of Transworld Snowboarding was released.
Who were your influences? Craig Kelly, and definitely Todd Richards.
Favorite place to ride? Fernie, BC. Or anywhere where the snow is soft and deep.
How long have you been around the shop? Started doing USSA contests with Greg in ’94. And I think I’ve worked here every winter since then, except maybe one season.
Favorite Snowboard Video: Deeper.
Favorite Video Part: Johan Olofsson’s first descent on Oden’s Ladder in Alaska.
Last Words: Get some snow shoes and go find it; it’s out there. But stay away from my spots.
