Devon BryanDevon Bryan – SASS Argentina 2017 Attendee

Devon is an IFSA Independent Athlete out of the Pacific Northwest and the 3rd place Overall IFSA Champion for the 12-14 Male Snowboard division. Devon gets a leg up on the competition by attending SASS in the summer months to keep strong, fit, and add new tricks to his snowboarding skill set. Devon is an incredibly driven athlete with wild blue locks and having seen him snowboard, it’s no surprise he takes his training very seriously! Here is what Devon's family has to say about SASS: 

"Devon first went to SASS Argentina when he was 10 and also at age 11. Devon absolutely loves the entire experience from riding daily with professional guides, avalanche training, new cultural experiences, and most of all the relationships and friends he has made during his time at SASS. SASS has provided excellent learning and priceless experiences that have fostered Devon's confidence and snowboarding to a higher level."
