Andy Tullis lives in Bend Oregon and enjoys skating and snowboarding, while exploring the mountains and bowls. When he started riding boards in 1984, he also picked up his dad’s camera and began recording special moments when his friends were shredding. He quickly fell in love with the relationship between riding and photography. He realized early on that there was something special about riding powder lines and launching off wind lips with a varied crew of friends at Mount Bachelor. That's where he met SnoPlanks co-owner and board designer, James Nicol, while he was testing one of his early prototypes. It was a deep stormy pow day at the mountain. Over time, they became friends and Andy began helping James to develop a longboard design that would ride great anywhere. On both concrete and snow he is taking SnoPlanks designs and fine tuning them through riding and feedback. With a great crew of riders blended together to design, build and ride SnoPlanks boards, Andy looks forward to what the future will bring.
This winter, Andy plans on many early morning pow missions, riding primarily at Mt. Bachelor. He also has a few indoor skate ramp options available in the area, so skating is always an option even in the winter months. Trips to Mt. Hood and Mt. Baker are in works for Andy, which he is super stoked about. For the most part though, you will find Andy chasing pow and riding with his family and friends! Find Andy on Instagram @andy.tullis
