Mountainwatch | Joe Stanco
Known to some as “Snow Guru Joe”, Joe Stanco has a passion for snow, snowboarding and everything that goes with it. Joey is an expert boot fitter, amateur snowboarder and product tester with “a passion for helping others find the right gear.” He founded Joeys Myoko in Myoko Kogen, Japan last year, a service/demo centre for locals and travellers and during the Australian season he does his thing out of the ESS stores Jindy and Thredbo.
When he’s not fitting boots and giving expert advice to customers Joey is on the mountain doing a bit of “R&D” on the latest snowboards. Whether you are into pow, park or shredding the groomed, Joey can recommend the right board for you. In this review, Joey takes a look at three boards from Salomon – the Villain, Assassin, Ultimate Ride
“These are three GREAT all-mountain park boards, ” Joey said. “Great for these slushy conditions we are experiencing now in Australia.”
