Hailing from Mt Tremblant, Quebec, Charles Reid is part of a new breed of French Canadian shredders who is making a name for himself on the Swatch TTR World Tour. And part of what makes him so good is the sheer power he can unleash when he straps on a board. Park, rails, pipe or pow, at just 19 he has the legs of a seasoned veteran and seems to only be improving his already boisterous career.

March 2006 was Reid’s big break, finding a spot in the limelight after placing fourth in the Slopestyle at snowboarding’s most grueling and prestigious contests, the 6Star Burton US Open. The following 06/07 season saw Reid march upon the TTR Tour with some Top ten finishes including the 4 Star Abominable Snow Jam and 5 Star World Super Pipe Championships.

It wasn’t until the end of the 07/08 season however, that Charles would find himself at the top of the TTR Ranks. After placing ninth in the Slopestyle at the 5Star Nissan X-Trail Jam, Reid returned to the slopes of Stratton Vermont for the US Open and managed to find his first TTR podium with a third place in the Slopestyle. In similar fashion, he bagged another third at the 3Star Quiksilver Showdown over the City in Vancouver, BC, a strong result that placed him at World No. 21 at the end of the season.

2008/2009 was also a killer season for Charles and it started off strong. In a 2009 interview with Snowboard Canada Magazine, Reid touted that his goal was “to make the Top 10 at the end.” A bold preface, but a reality he would embrace in due time. With a win at the 4Star Oakley Stylewars after “a tough three days with some of he best riders in the world”, and a second place at the 5Star Burton New Zealand Open brought him some deserved recognition. It was there where he unleashed what would become one of his signature tricks, a variation of the ever popular Double Cork, a move that helped him find the podium several more times during the season.

He kept working tirelessly, crossing the globe, competing in Swatch TTR events, but it was not until he returned home for the 5Star Burton Canadian Open that he found himself on the podium again with a third in the Slope and a fifth in the pipe. Proving his agility with two more second place results at the 5Star Asian Open and 5Star Intelligent Design, Reid had established himself as one of the hottest riders on the Tour. Completing his season with a fourth in the pipe, (his best HP result to date) the 09 6Star Burton US Open was also the battleground upon which he broke the TTR Top ten, finishing 2009 as World No. 6. Seems like planning ahead will get you places.

After a 09/10 season with lots of finishes outside the Top 10 at the major events on the Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour including a 13th place at the Burton US Open, and his final Swatch TTR ranking in World No. 20, Charles Reid is still one of the most lethal riders on course and will no doubt be looking to improve his World Ranking in 10/11.

What does a normal day look like when you are not snowboarding?
Canadian kid but when he’s strapped into his board, the kid is a beast. While the rest of us sleep, the hungry and hardworking Charles is wide-awake, eating frozen, 90-foot step-downs for breakfast. Growing up in Quebec, he began riding at age five on the
