QUOTES

Mark Mann - Feb. 16
"Today was surreal. A year ago I was watching adaptive boardercross at the X Games and thinking, 'I could possibly do this...I want to try this." Fast forward a year later, and here I am taking home gold at the world cup in La Molina. It feels great to take home gold and accomplish a goal that I set at the beginning of the season. I'm looking forward to what lies ahead.

"This season has been an amazing ride but I have to give credit where credit is do. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for God gracefully sparing my life, support from my family, friends, and organizations like Wiggle Your Toes and Adaptive Action Sports."
