    “On the Spot: Matt Recsetar, Campus Rail Jam Tour snowboard competitor”

    What happened the first time you got on a board? What did your mind, body and soul experience?

    I think it was about 10 years ago. I was on the top of the world. I felt comfortable. I skateboarded since I was a little kid, so it was not that hard.

    Worst crash you’ve been in on the slopes?

    I hit a jump earlier this year and landed on my head. It felt good. I never get hurt. I’ll fall a lot, but I’ll always land up on my feet — like rolling somehow. It’s kind of amazing.

    Coolest thing you can do on the slopes?

    Maybe a backflip, we’ll see about today.

    On Saturday night am I going to find you at a dance club or a strip club?

    A dance club …

    What is something you want to ask God?

    Why people spend so much time working and not enjoying life.

    Would you ask the Satan the same?

    I would ask him why keeps tempting me.
