If you’ve ever hung out with Trevor Brady, you know that he is the type of person that loves whatever he is doing at the moment, and in turn, it makes you love whatever you are doing with him at the moment, and that’s exactly why we are so fortunate to have him in the snowboarding industry. The kid is an infectious nucleus of positive energy and that transfers to those who he surrounds himself with. Plainly put, Trevor Brady might love snowboarding more than anyone I know. From slingin’ snowboards as a grom at Salt Lake City’s most notorious shop, Milosport, to now peddling product for Burton, Roark Revival and The James Brand, Trevor was always meant to be in sales, because people—especially in this industry—simply want to work with and buy from people that they like to spend time with.
