About Todd Richards 
Todd Richards is a legend, straight up. He’s a pioneer, a business owner and a ripping shredder. Todd’s been toting board bags around the world as a pillar of the snowboarding community for going on two decades now, and it’s just as fun to him now as it was those twenty years ago. Looking back to his days as a wee lad, Todd claims that he was “destined for lameness”. Thankfully time has since proved him wrong, as Todd is one of the best shredders and most un-lame people snowboarding has ever known. These days you can find Todd rolling heavily modified AWE Tuning Audi’s around Encinitas in and out of his garage filming his weekly web show AWSM ON ALLI, tucking into the green room at the local Encinitas surf spots, outshining kids on the local hill jump lines, and tucked away in his basement playing video games that his kids don’t even know dad has.
