After the dismal showing of the Canadian snowboarding team at the last Olympics, boarding legend Jesse Fulton (36 career podiums) decided to open his own snowboarding school, recruit a group of young riders and give the Canadian Snowboard Federation the bum’s rush. Shreducation follows what happened next.

Fulton is a character in a sport known for its personalities. Brash, irreverent and possibly unstable, he pushes his students – average age 15 years – to be bigger and better. And the results speak for themselves. His students are already better than much of the national team, and have begun to attract the attention of international sponsors.
