He shared that it was “amazing to hear and see their stories.” “One of the competitors was like, ‘I never told you this but when I first started snowboarding, I had your promo on a board and your jacket that you used to ride in.’ It was amazing to learn that they had influenced me and helped them on their path and shown them what it is possible in the sport.

“And people that just like, ‘Man, I wanted to beat you for so long.’ Do you know what? ‘But I respect you and I’m so honored to be here on your last dance,'” he continued. It was so emotional, it was amazing. I let my emotions run free and broke down. It’s a moment I will cherish forever.

As he prepares to see Nina again and to be reunited with his family, the iconic singer is excited about the future. As he told CelebHomes, “I can’t wait to get back and see her, see my family and start this next chapter of my life.”
