Josh has seen and done it all, gracefully ripping his way into a guaranteed place in the Snowboard Hall of Fame. Forever searching for the perfect wind lip, Josh got his start as an under-the-radar contest phenom, before filming his seminal video parts in the Kingpin, Mack Dawg, and Robot Food movies.
Dirksen has earned enormous respect from his peers along the way, laying the foundation for a coveted “life long pro career”. Whether he's grabbing his zillionth podium at the Legendary Baker Banked Slalom, bringing the snowboard community together via his Dirksen Derby event, meeting with senators in Washington D.C. to help protect our winters, or making a simple heelside turn -- when you watch Josh operate it is very apparent you’re witnessing an artist at work.
Additionally, he is one of the best product development riders we’ve ever seen, and his ideas, prototype testing, and feedback over the years have been instrumental in evolving our mittens.
