4. Forming Frends
Coping with a bum ankle, Davis had most of 2007 off to rehab and relax. He used his time to travel, eventually linking up with his friends in the Bahamas while he waited for his injury to heal. Despite not being able to get on his board, he managed to be productive, formalizing his alliance with his snowboard crew, including Jack and Luke Mitrani, Scotty Lago, Keir Dillon, and Kevin Pearce. Under the name Frends, they’ve put out several video clips dedicated to moving away from the tight lines of competition and embracing the free spirit of snowboarding.
