"It was 1997, and I had just turned 17 when I first heard of the infamous Forum team. They instantly became my favorite riders, and my room was plastered with their posters," Wall reminisces. His early snowboarding days were spent devouring videos like MDP's "The Resistance" and "True Life," leading to countless re-watches and even a worn-out VHS tape.

Fast forward to his early twenties, and Wall found himself living a surreal plotline when he signed a contract to join the Forum team, the very same team he had idolized. "It felt like a movie. A dream come true," he admits. The years that followed were a whirlwind of epic proportions – filming video parts, global travel, premiere tours, unforgettable photo shoots, wild parties, and most importantly, building enduring friendships that still endure to this day.

For Wall, the journey was even more poetic as Peter Line, his childhood hero, became the best man at his wedding. The ride doesn't stop there; Wall's path to Forum was paved by another snowboarding legend, Kevin Jones, who initially got him on Jeenyus, a precursor to his iconic journey with Forum.

Looking back, Eddie Wall expresses immense gratitude for his time with Forum Snowboards. "I feel so fortunate to have been a part of the Forum team, and it's something I will never forget," he says. Eddie Wall's legacy in the sport is cemented not just by his incredible riding but by the rich tapestry of friendships and memories woven throughout his incredible career."
