Forrest has been riding snowboards for over 26 years, currently lives in Bend, Oregon. He loves to snowboard, travel, skating, hike/explore, bike, camp, garden, and playing in the ocean and attempting to surf with his girl Ashley Thornton and his teenage daughter Guinevere. When he’s not playing outdoors, he stays busy blowing glass in a small but beautiful 4'/8' trailer that he hand built. Forrest has been making glass art for the last 19 years and absolutely loves it, especially in a trailer that he can enjoy at home or take on the road!
This season, Forrest plans to ride as much untracked pow as possible while traveling around to new and old places around Oregon with the wagon in tow, exploring the backcountry, resorts and local hangouts promoting his art and snowboarding. Racing in the Legendary Banked Slalom at Mt. Baker is high on the list for Forrest, but he’s waiting to see if he make it into a lottery slot, or see if he can win a spot by competing in some of the banked slalom races around the NW. The Gerry Lopez Big Wave Challenge is always is a great time and he plans on going back to the Holy Bowly put on by Crush and his amazing crew. All of this will be followed up with some more summer shred at Mt. Hood. Instagram @forrestdevore
