Ride Snowboards Welcomes Dan “Danimals” Liehdal To The Pro Team

Ride Snowboards, welcomes Dan “Danimals” Liehdal to its Pro Team. Hailing from Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Danimals’ effortless style and rock-solid mentality have made him an underground favorite for years. It’s good to see him getting the recognition he deserves.

“Dan is truly a one of a kind fellow; a polite Midwestern gentleman with exceptional natural talent combined with creativity and the smoothest style,” said Tanner McCarty, RIDE Team Manager. “He can even pound half a dozen donuts every morning and not gain an inch. He’s got it all and is extremely deserving of a spot on the RIDE Pro Team. I couldn’t be more hyped.”

Danimals’ standout part in Videograss this year clearly demonstrates his smooth style and creative outlook on snowboarding. His fourth part comes out this fall. The talented 24-year-old can be found hot lapping his home mountain of Highland Hills, or hitting rails in the street. When not on a snowboard, he is on a skateboard or ripping his moto in the woods.

“I’m so grateful to go through the stepping stone of becoming pro for RIDE,” said Danimals. “There are so many great riders I have looked up to that have also been pro for RIDE: Dale Rehberg, Mikey Leblanc, Darrell Mathes, Justin Hebbel, just to name a few. It’s really a cool thing that means a lot to me.”
