Luke Haddock AGE: 26 OCCUPATION: professional snowboarder

(winter); assistant manager of house-painting crew (summer); maple syrup producer (sugaring season) TOWN: Richmond Native Vermonter Luke Haddock started snowboarding when he was in the third grade; he turned pro in 2011. On behalf of his sponsor, Technine, he travels to competitions and events all across the country and shows off sick jumps and slope-style antics in videos online. When he’s not getting air, he’s working and finishing a business degree at the Community College of Vermont. “I’ve been a lot of places,” he says, “and out of all of them, Vermont is still one of the top three.” FAVORITE LOCAL STORE: Talent Skatepark. I buy skateboard decks and anything else they sell. FAVORITE FIGURE FROM VERMONT HISTORY:

Ross Powers. He’s done a lot for snowboarding. He won the first U.S. Olympic gold medal in men’s half-pipe in 2002. He just killed it around here. He’s a legend. MY RADIO DIAL IS TURNED TO: KOOL 105.1

(oldies) or KISS 104.3 (hip-hop)

HOW TO GET THROUGH A VERMONT WINTER:

Lots of layers. And stay moving. If you’re not moving, you better start moving.

WHERE TO FIND ME ON A FRIDAY NIGHT OUT: Esox, for the strong booze, $5 pitchers and

welcoming atmosphere.

FAVORITE STREET IN BURLINGTON:

Church Street. Cliché, but true. 82 WHAT’S GOOD
