Sound off on the important issues at

Age: 17.

Favorite outdoor activities: "I love longboarding, snowboarding, skateboarding, hacky sack, going for a walk, a lot of sports and anything outdoors."

Cool experience: "I was longboarding down Eaglecrest Road and it was a really long, steep area. I was going for quite some time and there was a porcupine crossing the road as I was going down with a lot of speed. I ended up carving right by the porcupine, right before it went off the road. I just saw it ahead as I was coming down and planned my turns so I just could go right by it."

Close call: "I took a bad spill when I was longboarding. I was carving down a hill by my house and I lost my footing on my board and ended up falling over my head and landing on my shoulder and dragging across the cement with my feet in the air. I tore my shirt and now I have a big scar on my shoulder. I just got up and did it again and then went inside."
