DC’s Vice President of Marketing, Megan Easley says, “Congratulations, Devun! Thank you for all you have done in snowboarding and for your unwavering support behind the DC brand and family. We are truly honored to have you on board since this program’s inception.”

Earlier this season, Devun dropped Wildcats Never Die with The Wildcats, a notorious snowboarding crew from Whistler that features bangers and mischief they are known for coupled with nostalgic 80’s style mixed in - spanning over three different countries: British Columbia, Japan and Chile. Over the last two decades, the Wildcats leader has made a career for himself by putting snowboarding first and mastering the art of backcountry freestyle riding.

Devun’s bold riding style and his philanthropic efforts off the board have landed him among previous Legend Award recipients: Bryan Iguchi, Barrett Christy, Jamie Lynn, Mike Ranquet, Tom Burt, Chris Roach, Peter Line and other legends.
