Anthony Boronowski is a 24-year-old ripper from Canada with his own pro model Armada Ski. Over the years Anthony Boronowski has slowly progressed from a solid skier to a great one with his insane style and attitude. Although, not much of a contest skier these days, Anthony won Junior Nationals as a teenager.
Coming off a harsh kidney / liver injury, Anthony was charging on the snow by January, making a point to show everyone he was back. This summer, Anthony was shredding down in New Zealand for a month and then spent the rest of his time chilling in Thailand.
To show support to his fellow skiers, Anthony started a company called Joystick Ski Poles, a fun accessories company – check out the SPICOLLI edition – soon to be a classic. You can catch all of Anthony’s antics on skis in Poor Boyz Films – War, Ten, Session 1242, Happy Dayz, and Propaganda. Anthony rocks Oakley outerwear and eyewear; make sure to check his latest video part in “Show & Prove.”
