Seven years ago there was a young man from Atlanta who started getting into some trouble and thought that if he moved West he could finish school and stay on the straight and narrow. By chance he wound up getting a job on the mountain at Mount Hood Meadows and saw this sport of snowboarding.
Ahmon had heard of it before, but never knew that people would do anything and everything to get their fix of snowboarding. Thank god Ahmon was getting in trouble back in old Georgia because today he is one of the finest shredders around and a hell of a fun guy to go riding with. Just stay away from the Georgia peach if he can’t shred because he is one grumpy cat.
Ahmon’s brother’s are also top athlete’s going to school on scholarships for football and track, but Ahmon always loved skateboarding. He was a pioneer in the sport back in Atlanta. He always had an independent spirit and was extremely daring and brave. In fact, one time we called the fire department because we had a fire in the laundry room and Ahmon would not get out of the house until the fire was totally out. He always was a true mountain man and loved hunting and fishing. Ahmon is a great role model for the kids back in Atlanta and they all know about how Ahmon choose a different path and it led to great success.
