Since he started snowboarding at the ripe young age of 12, Ean has gone on to travel the world. He's put down lines from Chile, to India, over to AK, and back to his native Northwest, searching for adventure and living every moment to it's gritty fullest. Ean's pursuits range from skating and surfing to traveling, reading, writing and producing films that focus on making less impact to the ecosystem. You can find Ean's latest film - Wasted- above where it says "Watch Video." This is a film about his truck running on waste vegetable oil and accessing all terrain by foot. We have joined together with Ean in a new series Titled DROPPING IN. The focus is on how outward adventures draw us in. Learning to balance the health of our minds, our bodies, and our emotions. You can find a new post every other week on our blog. Ean will also be joining together with a Zeal ambassador for an IG live every other Thursday to Drop In. While it's these adventures that keep the stoke and creativity running high for Ean, the true incentive and narrative thread has deeper roots. "What motivates me is having a positive presence in people's lives," he says. "Stoking people out, sharing good times and scaring myself along the way. Trying to better myself in the process. Oh and deep powder... always deep powder!" We couldn't agree more.
"ZEAL is at the forefront of all companies in my opinion. Sunglasses that are made from biodegradable materials? Game changing! Plus their lenses are as crisp as it gets. "
