One of our go-to action sports writers since 2007, Shawn Mayer has covered everything from surf movies and local snowboard manufacturers to skate legends like Tony Hawk and Stacy Peralta. As close to Jersey Shore as SLUG is ever going to get, Mayer is a Utah transplant from the land of Snooki who came out west to "slack off and ride some pow" in 2005 – he hasn’t left since and we don’t plan on letting go of his snarky attitude and Joisey accent anytime soon! Aside from being one of our action sports minions, Mayer likes to travel and document it all through film, photos and of course, writing. Mayer’s passion for all things action sports is infectious – if you don’t believe us, check out his article on Super Top Secret in this month’s issue.
