Where were you when you were 14? GI Joe, Transformers and video games come to mind for many of us. 14 year-old Judd Henkes has been pushing the boundaries of snowboarding. He's the first to guinea pig a new jump, his style is on point and he's not afraid to try just about anything. In 2016 Judd won the Junior Jam at the US Open, giving him a wild card entry to the Main Event. Going up against some of the halfpipe greats (keep in mind Judd is usually a slopestyle rider), our favorite mini-shred-in-a-collared-shirt blasted a 20 foot frontside 540 for his first hit, then chucked a 20 foot frontside 900 on his final hit ending with a memorable crowd spray. Add Judd to your list of names to watch, like now. This kid is going places, and he's going big.
I have been riding since I was four so like 10 years.
