The Mountainwatch.com team is as passionate and dedicated about the mountains as you are.
Since 1989 Reggae has spent every winter in Thredbo. As Australia's most well known surf reporter and surf mag editor Reggae has parlayed these skills becoming an iconic snow reporter, editor and co-publisher of Australia's number one ski magazine Chillfactor since it's launch in 2000.
Reggae's passion for surf never cooled despite living in the Snowy Mountains. He's currently managing editor/co-publisher of Surfing World, Australia's longest running surfing magazine from 1997 until present. Complimenting this, Reggae's also a presenter/reporter of snow content as well as the Surfing World surf show on Bigpond Sports TV.
As a current anchor commentator for live broadcast on Fuel TV and live webcast of major ASP (Association of Surfing Professional) world tour events including Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach, Rip Curl Pro Portugal, Rip Curl Pro Search and Commonwealth Bank Beachley Classic, Reggae maintains a busy schedule when not enjoying time with his family in Thredbo.
With 20 years experience as a surf and snow reporter for various radio stations including Triple M, WSFM, MIXFM, 2UE, Triple J, and the Edge 96.1, Reggae has been coined a "one take wonder" when it comes to snow and surf reporting never confusing the two. But listen close and you just might hear Reggae suggest the snow conditions will improve with the out going tide!
In 1999, after finishing high school Nick packed his snowboard bags for his first season in Fernie BC. What he didn't know was that this was the beginning of a 11 year endless winter across the globe.
After 5 years being supported by Billabong purely as an athlete, Nick picked up an additional role working in the Billabong marketing department as the snow marketing guru while still snowboarding at a professional level.
Then in 2009 nick left Billabong and both jobs snowboarding and marketing to produce s series of TV interstitials for Fuel TV and Burton Snowboards called 'I Heart WNTR' that documented the winter season through the eyes of professional snowboarders in Australia and New Zealand.
In late 2009 after the winter season Nick came on board with the Mountainwatch.com and Transfer Snowboard Magazine team as the online content manager. The rest is history!

"Some say he hatched one summer on a Himalayan plateau. As cold Autumn winds set in, he stumbled upon a scrap of goretex shed by some unfortunate climber and turned it into the smallest snowsuit ever. Then he strapped himself into a nearby leaf and carved his way down the mountains, hitching a ride with some hikers back to civilisation. They say he's boarded at all the best resorts and always knows when a blizzard is on the way. He is: The Grasshopper."We work closely with:
