Meet Tony

Snowboarding since 1996, I am one of the owners at Windward Boardshop. I enjoy making fresh tracks in the winter and fresh waves on the water during summer SUP'in it up. When I'm not riding I'm running the backend inventory and online world of Windward, burning my eyes out in front of the screen creating all sorts of digital delights.
