BIOGRAPHY

There are few riders that can match the style of Rusty Ockenden when it comes to backcountry jumping. Some might say he somewhat mirrors Whistler legend Devun Walsh. But where Devun has made a name is the last few years for huge stylish low rotation airs, Rusty can take this clean air awareness and apply it to larger spins. Rusty is here to stay and is only going to get better with time. So sit back and watch the future of backcountry snowboarding.

An extra tidbit by way of his close friend, his fellow Manboys: Rusty likes to eat curry and do squats and beat the shit out of Sub Zero.
