AJ joins Nate in The Not Snowboarding Podcast studio (Nate’s basement) and they connect with Gus via Skype to discuss a wide variety of topics. The conversation ranges from Russian literature to moose milk and everything in between.
The following words written by Matt Vantta back in 2012 (link to the full ESPN article) articulately describe Gus:
“Gus Engle is a true original, a bohemian lover of life that appears to be drawn right out of a Kerouac novel. His snowboard seems to be less an instrument of athletic progression and more like a paintbrush of a master. To really dig Engle’s snowboarding you have to be open minded, because it’s not manufactured and doesn’t meet industry standards for how you’re supposed to ride.
Based on our chat with Gus, I’d add: “Gus has a kind, authentic infectious energy and an appreciation for the beauty that lies in the subtleties of everyday life.”
