Todd took off to become the Ultimate Boarder, leaving us high and dry for our Friday funnies. However, we ran into superstar Danny Kass and decided waiting on Todd sounded stupid. So here it is folks, High Fives with Danny Kass.
Are you going to win the US Open this year, why or why not?
I was planning a driving trip to Alaska with (Dustin) Craven, so could be hard if I’m not there.
In what direction do you see yourself headed in both business and snowboard superstardom?
Seems to be busier and busier. Just want to have fun with this awesome opportunity and keep on rocking, making rad gear and doing wilder stuff on my snowboard(toys).
What would you do on your TV show with an endless budget?
I would go to Antartica and shred, get to the the moon or close, and make a most extreme elimination to every episode. And also I would get some new tires for the RV.
How famous are you really? Have you had any “Holy Shit I’m famous” moments, and what’s it like?
I don’t think I am that famous, but I have meet a ton of cool people that love snowboarding or our crazy antics. It makes for some good stories and meeting people you never thought possible. Somehow I met Stevie Wonder, that was crazy. I think it is sweet for kids to geek out on riders. I did heavily growing up on skaters and earlier shredders, still do.
Are you planning to go back to New Zealand this summer? Will they let you back in?
I have been back since. There is talk about doing a Grenade Games in the Southern Hemisphere, so it is up to NZ or Australia. I don’t think I will be spending nearly as much time as I did last summer though.
