Originally from Ontario, Rupert moved to the West Coast of Canada as a teenager and has since traveled the world as a Professional Snowboarder. Although his youth was spent filming snowboard videos getting radical in everything from urban settings to backcountry booters, Rupert maintained his fitness and became a passionate rock climber. As years passed, Rupert wondered if there was more to the mountains and began exploring the Coast Mountains on a split-board. His passion for these mountains and what they have provided him with is outspoken. In the last 5 years, Rupert has made a name for himself as a true professional. He spends his summers as a Rock Guide taking clients up Squamish granite and his winters in the snowy peaks, he is only one of a handful of certified Snowboard Guides in Canada.
