The Story of Alpha Barrie:
Adam Towle, the manager at the Knotty Pine Dinner & Supper Club, is an avid surfer and on his latest world surfing travels he met Alpha Barrie at the Bureh Beach Surf Club in Sierra Leone. The club teaches young locals and tourists how to surf. Alpha had expressed interested in learning how to snowboard and Adam graciously supported Alpha with the necessary funds for a visa and passport to make the journey.

It is amazing to see how the Teton Valley has come together to help bring Alpha’s dream of learning how to snowboard come true. Sierra Leone now officially has their very first snowboarder!
