The past season was a big one for Jonah Owen. A new board sponsor, a new video part, and a new chapter in his snowboarding story. It’s apparent that Jonah’s persistence is paying off and the skills that he has displayed over the years in the streets are allowing him to make decisive calls on how he wants to spend his time when strapped in. As we near the 2013 edition of Hot Dawgs and Handrails, when this time last year Jonah’s early season win set the pace for his banner winter, we tapped him to fill us in on the songs that are his current snowboarding soundtrack. - Mary Walsh
