There is no one out there who throws down heavier street parts than our very own Cale Zima. He hits ledges and rails that we would only look at and think it was impossible to hit. Mixing in his own style and humor into his video parts Cale Zima brings a level to the Celtek Clan that is much appreciated to say the least. We could tell you about Cale all day but why not ask him? So we did!

Have you ever dreamed of riding in a private season with Shaun White in his private half pipe? Well for Toby Miller this is no dream, he gets to train one on one with Shaun White. Not to mention that this kid rips, he is throwing the biggest tricks in the pipe and is riding at the same level as the top pros, but he is only 15 years old. But he doesn’t only kill it in the pipe he also rides in Slopestyle events as well. We wanted to get to know him a little better so we asked him a few questions.

You ever wonder what it would be like to roam the world looking for the best snow or feature, well DBK could tell you what its like. This shredder/film maker kills it in front and behind the lens. He has recently been working on his new film series “Detour” which looks to be amazing and will be coming out this Fall. We are so stoked to have DBK as a part of the Celtek Clan and we can’t wait to see what this up coming winter brings him. If you haven’t seen him ride or any of his videos it is a must, you have to watch him rip. So we thought what better way to get to know our new team rider than to ask him a few questions.

Stay tuned!”

Have you ever been shredding down the mountain or stomp a new trick only to turn around and see some kid half your size do something you only dream of doing, well that kid is Red Gerard. This kid rips! Coming from a big family who are all great snowboarders Red has learned from his older brothers how to be an amazing snowboarder. This kid has no fear, he charges the biggest jumps and throws himself down the biggest rails pushing all the older guys to try to keep up with him. Over here at Celtek we are all about people who push the limits just like Red does. So we thought why not ask this ripper a few questions. Red media add
