A few weeks ago we were in Mammoth Mountain, California, hanging out with our team snowboarder Matt Ladley during the US Open Grand Prix. Although the total snowfall to date in Mammoth is still well under past yearly averages, we still managed to find a few ways to keep ourselves occupied and have fun with our little buddy. And, although Matt ended up having a little shocker and lost in the early rounds of competition (highly unusual), we were easily able to make light of the situation and do what we do best-let loose, relax and kick it in style! So, without further adieu, it is our great pleasure to bring you another installment of our HEXclusive video segment known as "LAST" where we rapidly profile members of our elite family. Now, get to know our boy Matt Ladley a little better...

It was nice to catch up with Greg Bretz over lunch, we love what you've done with your Code wallet Mr. Greg! Greg is actually from Mammoth and placed second in the contest.

All I've ever known is the 6hr drive to Mammoth from my home in SoCal, but after this trip I think I may have to fly more often!
