INTERVIEW 2014.12.19

What are you looking for to accomplish?

"Craig Beaulieu"

I am looking to accomplish satisfaction within myself. There is only so far you can push the sport until you get worked. I am planning on creating the best online part for people to be hyped on.

What would be your greatest achievement?

My greatest achievement was winning the 2011 Grenade games in Whistler British Columbia Canada. As for a life achievement, I believe I am living it.

What kind of difficulties does your sport’s performance involve?

Snowboarding involves injuries, money, sponsors and a will to throw yourself and push your limitations. Once you can find a healthy balance of all those things, everything will fall into place nicely.

"Craig Beaulieu"

What makes you feel satisfied when performing your sport?

The things that satisfy me while Snowboarding is having fun with my friends and goofing around.

Where do you practice your techniques when being alone?

When I am alone either Snowboarding, at the gym or at the drop in ramp before a contest… I always have a voice inside me telling me “I can” perform this task. It’s kind of weird hahaha.

"Craig Beaulieu"

What do you do during your training which is key to your success?

Focus.  

What are you most nervous about when competing?

Not performing as well as I should.

Who would you say is your biggest fan and why?

I am my own biggest fan because I have watched myself progress into the person I am today. Inside and out.

"Craig Beaulieu "

What is the best piece of advice you have been ever given?

Don’t think about the outcome, just go. When you think too hard on something, it messes with your brain.

"Craig Beaulieu "

What are your future plans?

Go bigger and land more.

What are your tips for those who begin now?

The tip I can give to anyone is never give up. Life sometimes throws wrenches in your gears, but you have to learn to get up and try again.
