Curtis Ciszek has a quiet, laid-back style, but don’t let that fool you.

That unassuming demeanor has become as much of a trademark as his riding. Curtis has appeared in numerous snowboard films and publications around the world. At a young age, he opted to leave the competitive side of snowboarding and hasn't looked back. He’ll make an exception for the Mt. Baker Legendary Banked Slalom (one of the longest-running snowboarding events in the country), though, where in 2016, Curtis placed 3rd. When he’s not on snow, he’s usually on water. As an avid angler, Curtis spends much of his time fishing for steelhead in the Pacific Northwest. He balances the intensity of hucking off cliffs with the peaceful casting of a line. The perfect day is when he can ride in the morning and fish in the evening.
