Sandbox Welcomes Devun Walsh To The Team

by Adam Levitt |

Sandbox is honoured to announce the addition of Devun Walsh to their snow team.

Widely regarded as one of the most influential riders of all time with video parts spanning three decades, Devun needs no introduction. He is the gold standard of style and class and just recently, was the first Canadian to be granted Transworld’s coveted Legend Award. We are truly humbled to have Devun representing not only our helmets, but our goggles as well. As a Canadian pro living between North Vancouver and Whistler, the Sandbox HQ stomping grounds (pun intended), we think the addition of Devun Walsh is a perfect fit on our team.

"When I made the decision to start wearing a helmet full time, Sandbox was the only brand I wanted to wear." —Devun Walsh 

You’ll often hear narratives about a floaty switch back 180 transcending any kind of quad cork acrobatics. Devun’s clean and classic style is largely attributed to this statement and one we feel undoubtedly aligns with our brand. We’re not a quad cork. We’re a solid back one.

"I couldn’t be more stoked to have Devun reppin’ Sandbox helmets and goggles. Dev’s a long time friend who I’ve looked up to since the first day I saw him ride. We were both very fortunate to grow up riding the North Shore mountains with Whistler only a stones throw away, it was the ultimate snowboard playground for us growing up. Dev’s riding is so solid yet he makes everything look effortless. We all tried to copy his style but could never pull it off. Welcome to the Sandbox family Dev!" —Kevin Sansalone

Devun’s other sponsors include: 

DC / Now Bindings / Beaver Wax / The Source Boardshop / Whistlerblackcomb / Mount Seymour / Wildcats

Cancer took John Leslie's leg when he was 10 years old. The following winter snowboarding changed his life. The Ottawa native is a snowboard Paralympian preparing to represent Canada in the 2018 games. This is his inspirational story, and this is his family.

“You told us we have no idea what we’re about to go face. But we’re going to do it as a family.” - John Leslie
