Ask Emily

If you could spend a day with any other SMITH athlete, who would it be and why?

There’s too many I want to hangout with! “Redbeard” looks like we would have such a fun time, and I'd bet we’d catch a few fish too. Or Bear Holeman. I don’t know much about him, but he seems like a total legend and pretty sure he knows where the fish are.

What's your go-to coffee shop order?

Drip coffee. I like cheap coffee and cheap beer.

What would the title of your autobiography be?

The Littlest Troll

Favorite meal?

Anything someone else makes for me.

What is your favorite SMITH product and why?

Squad MAG, obviously (best goggle ever). I always loved the squad, so adding the easy lens change made them perfect. I also love the Lowdown 2 sunglasses. They're so light and have so many lens options! My favorite is the Chromapop polarized gray green for lowlight days.

If you could have one super power, what would it be?

Time travel for sure. Imagine going to see all of history. And wow, all the fact checking you could do…
