SHEBOYGAN, Wis., May 27, 2010 – Otherwise known as “The Fish,” Steve Fisher, an American professional snowboarder, is partnering up with Wigwam for the 2010-2011 seasons. Wigwam has outfitted Steve with socks for the year, on and off the mountain, and is supporting him at his events nationwide.
Steve grew up in Saint Louis Park, MN, a suburb out of Minneapolis. As a young boy, his home mountain was Buck hill which was home to one of the first halfpipes in the Midwest. Steve rode at Buck hill every day and night until he was ten years old; saying that he rarely spent any time at home during the winter. He began competing in local competitions at age eight and qualified for USASA nationals by age nine. Fisher went pro in 2002 when he was asked by the US Snowboarding Team to forerun the 2002 Olympic halfpipe event and become a part of US Snowboarding. In 2004 and 2007 Steve was the Winter X-Games Champion and beat out professional snowboarder, Shaun White. He is currently ranked the #1 halfpipe rider in the United States by the USSA ranking system.
“I'm so excited to partner up with WIGWAM! Being a native mid-westerner I've grown up and always been a huge fan of the brand. Having such a great product on my feet will definitely help while I am on and off the mountain,” said, Steve Fisher.
Wigwam is thrilled about the partnership and with Steve and is looking forward to the relationship growing. We hope that this year, our product will help Steve achieve his personal best. This year, choose Wigwam if you are looking for the proper fit, function and fiber. Let Wigwam help you achieve “Your Personal Best” at whatever activity you enjoy.
