Peter Line is a professional snowboarder from Bellevue, Washington. He is a member of the Forum Snowboarding team and was the founder of the original Forum 8. The Forum 8 were: J. P. Walker, Jeremy Jones, Joni Malmi, Wille Yli-Luoma, Bjorn Leines, Devun Walsh, Chris Dufficy, and Peter Line and were seen in Mack Dawg Productions' The Resistance. He also played a key role in the production of Mark is a Nub.[1]

Line's biggest contribution to the snowboarding world was the popularization of cork and inverted tricks. This opened up a whole new realm for freestyle tricks to be conducted. His footage is highly original and creative compared to other tricks of that time.

Line is a multiple time competitor in the Winter X games, winning the Big Air Snowboarding event in 1997 and 1999, the Snowboarding Slopestyle event in 1999, and the Snowboarding Big-Air event in 2000.[2]

He is a columnist for Snowboarder Magazine[3] and is known for standout video parts each year.[4]
