Frank Knab is a New York state native, and Eastern Sierra immigrant. He calls Mammoth Lakes home, but you won't find him while your their. He's too busy exploring the Mammoth backcountry on his split board to bother with riding a chair lift. He's up at 5am and back at 9pm with a powder mustache, and a smile buried somewhere beneath it. Last season, Frank was out in the Jackson mountains filming with fellow Volcom riders Bryan Iguchi and Seth Huot for Volcom's #IP3. He also spent some time with Jeremy Jones and the Teton Gravity Research crew, camping somewhere deep in the hills of Tahoe. Frank is not your standard park lapping, rail riding Am. He is not afraid of a hike, and truly earns his turns.
