innovator who helped pioneer the snowboarding industry during the 1980s.
Cody, 32, began his love affair with board sports at the age of three.
Later, while attending an international management school in
Switzerland, he was president of the school's Ski Club.
In January, 2003, GhostriderX was named best new company at the ISPO in
Munich, the world's largest sports trade fair. Beating out a field of

Leading market research firms have identified board-sports as being the
fastest-growing market segment of the sports industry, with upwards of
5.5 million snowboard users in the U.S. alone.
