Keith (a.k.a Stubbsy) has spent the majority of his adult life immersed in the world of winter, following the snow around the globe. Stubbsy has been in the snowboard industry since 1999, clocking up countless seasons across four different continents.
First qualifying with SBINZ in 2001, he worked his way through the system until becoming and Examiner in 2007 and is now the Divisional Rep for Snowboard on the NZSIA Board. Keith moonlights as a Judge at FIS World Cup level and sits on the judging panel at the NZ Snowboard Junior Nationals every year.
With instructing and coaching qualifications from the States, Canada and the UK, Stubbsy has worked in multiple locations around the world, and has now settled in Wanaka – but still finds time to spend a few months in Japan every year.
Outside of the snowboard industry Keith works as a writer, photographer and web strategist. He is a published author with the book Snow-Search Japan and is the founder of a digital media business 360 New Zealand Ltd.
