Bob Klein is one of the rare first wavers of snowboarders that I’ve had on the podcast. He is that first-generation when everything was being figured out—he was an early Burton team rider, he had a Sessions store, he worked with athletes like Palmer, Holmes, and Cass…He’s done so much. We talk about a lot of it on the podcast and it’s a snowboard history lesson with a good dude who’s not afraid to admit his mistakes. Brad Holmes asks the Inappropriate Questions.
