When Pat Moore was just a boy his parents bought him a shiny new snowboard for Christmas. Little did they know just how much of an effect it would have young Pat’s life. When he was old enough, he joined the Waterville Academy Snow Program. Where he received a special kind of training, the kind where you spend the morning in the classroom and the afternoon on the slopes.
By the time he was 15 he had made the Forum Youngblood team and within a year of that he had joined the World Junior Team. From there he started competing in major competitions, all the while going home each day to do his homework. Before long, Pat had gone pro!
It has become clear over the years that Moore just can’t commit to one discipline; he is good at them all! Pat took 3rd place in the US Grand Prix Halfpipe in the 02/03 season and landed 2nd place at the Vans Triple Crown in the Slopestyle event the following year. In addition, Pat stood on the podium for the Quarterpipe event at the Oakley Arctic Challenge in 2007 and has had good runs at not only the FIS World Cup, but also the Winter X Games.
However, Pat is probably better known for his roles in high-profile snowboarding films, such as Travis Rice’s That’s It, That’s All and The Art of Flight. Other titles include Forum’s Forum or Against ‘Em, The Community Project, and Video Gangs. In 2014, Pat starred in a web series called Blueprint, which follows his season while filming with Volcom for his first feature film, Mr Plant. - TEXT ℅ RED BULL
