Steve Cartwright has been on the steady come-up for years now. To the untrained spectator, his quiet, confident style could over shadow how much of a beast in the streets he is. But isn’t that the goal of any great snowboarder? Make the difficult look easy?
If you’re not already looking his way, Steve’s going to be turning heads when his part in SBC’s, Relaxdrops this fall. Steve calls out 5 fellow urban bosses in this weeks, GIMME 5.

1. Mark Sollors “Mark’s ability to mix up technical tricks in the streets with unique features is always fun to watch. The kinks he's handled to date already make his street riding BOSS. And, he's the most humble human I've known”
2. Scot Brown “Scot’s technical tricks on bigger or longer rails is impressive to say the least. Scot’s had tricks go down in the middle of his parts that would be an "ender" for most pro's today. His laid back attitude and approach to riding is amazing for anybody to be around, which is great because I feel like he's just getting started.”
3. Cory Gallon “Because he’s someone who just goes for it. If Cory has a trick in his mind there’s not much that will stop him from getting it. I've watched him take some bails that would send anybody else back to the hotel for the rest of a trip. His amazing personality combined with the ability to overcome not only the mental, but physical hurdles that come with snowboarding will keep him progressing every time he straps on his board.”
4. Scott Stevens “Generally I’m not a fan of "tic-tacky" snowboarding, but Scott's riding is so much more. His board control combined with a true look of being comfortable on his snowboard is no gimmick. Some people are born with it, while others work hard to get it. Regardless of his situation Scott genuinely looks like he enjoys being on his snowboard, which is always fun to watch.”
5. Seth Hout / Jp Walker / Jeremy Jones / Travis Parker / David Benedek “Everybody at some point has looked up to somebody in something they love. watching the progression from these guys used to open my mind to snowboarding outside of a park setting. A lot of what they did was new or had never been done before and watching the videos every year was always an inspiration to be creative and push snowboarding for myself.”
