Mt Baker‘s favorite son, Lucas Debari, just joined the evo athlete team. We’ve been rolling with Lucas a bit this year and suffice to say that he’s highly motivated and should be turning out a classic video part in the fall. Evo has a nice little interview with him over on their site. Look for more from Lucas in Volume 13 of frequency TSJ and read the evo interview here.
“Seattle, WA: Leading action sports retailer, evo, is pleased to announce that Lucas Debari has joined the evoCollective, a multitalented group of individuals who represent evo’s brand and core values. Debari joins Austin Smith, Chris Benchetler, Kimmy Fasani, Eric Pollard, Tim McChesney, Brandon Cocard and other talented individuals as part of the evo Collective.
Lucas writes: “It is rad to link up with evo. From the community events here in the Northwest, to being the top retailer around, evo is a consistent and solid contributor to the snowboard community.”
Growing up in Glacier, Washingtion, at the foot of Mount Baker and only a few hours from evo’s Seattle headquarters, Lucas has been well-recognized in the Northwest snowboard scene for over a decade. In recent years, he has gained international recognition as one of today’s most progressive big mountain snowboarders, earning him a spot on the list of esteemed professional riders who have cut their teeth on the terrain that only Baker offers.
Lucas is spending this season working on a video part with Absinthe Films, taking a break from long, snowboard-mountaineering expeditions, and getting back to his freestyle roots.
