Welcome to the first installment of a new ongoing section here at Seasons called "First and Last." I'm really excited to get this thing started and first up is none other than Dan McNamara from Weekend snowboards and Bond outerwear. Be sure to check out both of these new companies for this upcoming season as their new gear looks extremely SICK! So, without further ado, here we go...



First and Last

Dan McNamara

first pet… A cat named Suzy. She lived until she was 13 and was jet black. Weird.

first car you owned… 1984 Ford Escort that I bought for $450. I finally had to get rid of it when the inner wheel well rusted off and the shock absorber was basically was riding on top of the tire.

first trick you learned… Backside 180 I think, although turning might have been considered a trick back then

first shredder you looked up to… Jamie Lynn for sure.

first contest you won… 6th grade spelling bee. The other girl spelled Oriole wrong. I think she is a doctor now.

first person to call when you win the lottery… My wife.

first mountain you rode… With a lift: Holiday Valley, NY, without a lift: the hill in my backyard

first set up (skateboard/snowboard)… Skate: Vision Aggressor, Snow: Burton Woody 145 (I still have it)

first concert… Public Enemy

first thing you do in the morning… Check my e-mail

first big purchase… The aforementioned 1984 Ford Escort

first sponsor… Urban Snowboard Shop in Buffalo NY

first job… When I was 12 I asked the local supermarket if I could earn some money cleaning the parking lot for the day. They said they would pay me $3 an hour. I stretched that out to a 7 hour job. I was ready to repaint the lines if it meant some extra cash.

last thing you ate… Animalitos-Mexican animal crackers

last person you called… some insurance guy

last text you sent… to Oren at Mammoth

last thing you do before going to bed… let the dog out one last time

last time you said “last time"… the waves were way better here last time

last concert… Kanye West I think

last mountain you rode… Mammoth Mountain

last movie you watched… Crips and Bloods: Made in America by Stacy Peralta

last close call… probably while driving

last big purchase… 2010 Prius 3G

last thing you ate… see above

last thing that surprised you… how fun High Cascade Snowboard Camp is in the summer

last regret… selling a 1995 Rodeo for $250 just a week before the whole Cash for Clunkers thing went through. I could have gotten $4500 credit for it. Shit.
