As the editor of Snowboarder Magazine, a post he's held since '03, Pat Bridges wields a certain influence. But it is as an advocate of snowboarding that "the eYe" exerts perhaps the most influence. Nobody knows and loves snowboarding quite like Pat.
The 35 year-old Vermont native is known for many things apart from his bone-deep love of shred: naming and co-owning East Infection magazine; his private, chicken wire-enclosed viewing area (aka "the cage") erected on the deck of the pipe at the '96 US Open; creating what he calls "the shifty of the new millennium" in the (god-forsaken) tailblock; and his ongoing role in Superpark, one of snowboarding's marquee get-togethers.
Bridges might get a bit of heat for his fascination with handplants—and insistence on busting them out anytime a nice piece of tranny and a crowd presents itself— but the man's no armchair quarterback: he has successfully handplanted 43 different wallrides.
