The 5 W's with Robby Balharry

May 2, 2012

Author: JS

His name can roll off the tongue of a contest announcer, he's avoiding the oil patch for now and he's familiar with a podium. Mr Robby Balharry ladies and gentleman. This Canmore native is working towards a spot at Sochi and his skill set would do us canucks proud over there.

Robby Balharry
Name: Robby Balharry
Birthdate: Nov 28th, 1990
Hometown: Canmore, Alberta
Current Residence: The Airport
Sponsors: Westbeach, Spy, Rudeboys, Monument, Grizzly Paw

Who was the man on the grassy knoll?
Who is Lee Harvey Oswald...?

What's the contest circuit been like this year?
Contest circuit has been sweet this year.  Been concentrating on the Dew Tour and TTR events.  Lots of travelling and I have come out with good results so I'm stoked.

Where's the best place snowboarding has brought you?
The best place snowboarding has brought would either be switzerland this past january where we got to rip nipple deep pow with da boyz. Or Norway for TTR World Champs - Got super sick and couldn't compete but norway is awesome and there are beauty girls everywhere.

When your getting ready to drop in at an event do you get nervous?
Not really, sometimes I'll still get a bit nervous before dropping in for my run but I just gotta pump the jams and it goes away.

Why aren't you working in the oil patch?
Im not working in the oil patch because I'd rather be snowboarding and I'm probably not manly enough or some shit, hah.
