Cam Pierce is not your average snowboard story. Born and raised in  North Carolina with an interest in rap and music making Cam made his way onto the all-star team of Forum Snowboards/ The Project and filmed with them for a number of years. When Forum was cut by Burton, it left all the riders looking for a new path. Some fell off while others prospered with Cam falling into the latter category by finding a new board sponsors with Endeavor and a new outwear sponsor with 686. Thanks to the help by 686 Cam filmed a full part this past season and traveled to locations all over North America. Once all the clips were in they were edited together by Ian Post into this final project. So take a few minutes to check out his full part and exclusive interview below.

Interview by Ben Birk.

How did a boy from North Carolina make his way into the big leagues of snowboarding?

I guess I just grew up riding the resorts out there and knew I loved snowboarding and wanted to do it for a living. So, I moved to SLC and started filming and getting my footage out for people to see. Now in here.

What was it like filming in Minnesota this past season?

Mostly cold and windy, but it was awesome. There’s so much to film there. We were even setting up spots that were across the street from each other haha.
