Earlier this month we went to one of Annie O’s iconic Standard shows to see Inna Modja, a Malian-French Electro Rap star, perform her first-ever show here in New York!
As a teenager, I always wanted to compare myself to the guys. I liked taking risks, exploring the unknown. I’ll never understand why I was like that, but when I was around 14, it led me to abandon my skis to learn how to snowboard – and try to learn all by myself. At the time, no one snowboarded, so there were no instructors, no schools, the gear was terrible – snowboard boots didn’t even exist!!! I started snowboarding wearing Moon Boots. But I’ll always remember that my board was a Burton. Even when snowboarding was just getting its start, it was already a great brand.
