If you get disturbed hearing about two grown men’s affection for each other clearly sounding like a dysfunctional married couple, then please don’t read on.
Nic, if you could pick one body part from Cohen to put on your body what would it be?I’d pick his sunburnt, blistered nose for a Halloween dress-up mask to scare some kids.
Cohen, if could pick one body part of Nic’s to put on your body what would it be?
It definitely wouldn’t be his arse. He openly admits to have a feeble little ass and is very proud of the one compliment he has ever received about it. He does have a nice head of hair though. Thick and luscious, despite it’s shade.
After spending so much time together this winter would you consider yourselves blood nut brothers?
Nic: Shit question. Next!
Cohen: I don’t know about that, there’s actually a great deal of controversy surrounding our hair colours. Nic’s is a rusty brown, mine is a more strawberry blonde … long story short, yes.
Cohen, what is a trick on your snowboard that Nic does that makes you jealous?
Nic is the king of tweaks. He can make fairly simple tricks, like a backside 180, a frontside 360 or a backside 540 look absolutely amazing. I’ve been trying to emulate this all season.
Nic, what is a trick on your snowboard that Cohen does that makes you jealous?
His switch back 5s and 7s. Somehow he doesn’t drift, which I really battle with.
Cohen, if you had to set Nic up on a date with a girlfriend what 5 words would you use to describe him?
Short, hairy, over-enthusiastic, quick, cougar-lover.
Nic, if you had to set Cohen up on a date with a girlfriend what 5 words would you use to describe him?
Awkward, gangly, light, white and tight (and I ‘d tell her to bring some cash because he definitely won’t pay).
You both have red hair, safety in numbers?
Nic: I’m not sure I ever feel safe with the might of Cohen around, but I think my slightly red hair looks less red when I’m with Cohen so that’s a good reason to hang out around him.
Cohen: Yes, we were both blessed with this abnormal affliction. That has already been established. We hang out together in hopes to avoid persecution from discriminatory magazine editors, like you, ya prick.
Cohen, do you think Nic rates himself? If he could use one pick up line to try score a chick what would it be?
I will answer that with a quote I heard him saying in a nightclub. "I am definitely the best snowboarder in this club". Douche.
Nic, do you think Cohen rates himself, if he could use one pick up line to try score a chick what would it be?
Hi I’m Cohen Davies, would you like to follow me through the progression park sometime?
Who is usually quicker at landing their tricks? And do you ever get sick of having to pull the bungee or wait for the other to land?
Nic: I’d say it’s pretty even. I don’t mind pulling the bungee a few more times for Cohen as it probably means he’s taking some beat downs, and as long as he doesn’t really get hurt it’s funny to watch.
Cohen: In the park Nic is basically a kook, but street snowboarding, if this season is anything to go off, I’ll have to say Nic. One particular street rail took me forever to get my trick on and I broke my rib in the process. Nic usually gets his (somewhat questionable) tricks fairly quickly. Pulling the bungee is usually a lot of hard work but what goes around comes around when it comes to that business, so even if you are sick of pulling it, it’s bad bungee etiquette to show it.
What was the best thing you saw Nic do on a snowboard this season?
The super-mega bridge handplant pop-over that you guys put in the last issue (the Board Buyers guide cover) was pretty damn impressive.
What was the best thing you saw Cohen do on a snowboard this season?
The cave gap that landed on the cover of this issue was pretty wild, the poor old boy claimed to have broken ribs but charged on through some bails to get it.
Who would be the big spoon and who would be the little spoon?
Nic: Cohen would be the big spoon so he could be creeping behind me breathing heavily.
Cohen: We were sleeping on two single beds pushed together. We separated them after the 3rd night, no spoons involved.
Cohen, what was the worst thing you saw Nic do off his snowboard this season?
Ah, where do I begin! I left him to fend for himself for one night. He went for a game of pool and a couple of drinks with Shaun Belmore. I stayed at my girlfriend's that night. When I arrived home in the morning Nic was hiding under his blankets, the bathroom was covered in vomit with an enormous shit sitting in the bathtub.
Nic, what was the worst thing you saw Cohen do off his snowboard this season?
Cohen skipped the best pow day of the year to take his girlfriend to the zoo.
Cohen, what are some of the best reasons of riding and travelling with Nic?
The guy is hilarious, even more so when he drinks. Sometimes he just spins right off the face of the earth. Also, he is a great Chingy impersonator.
Nic, what are some of the best reasons of riding and travelling with Cohen?
We have similar tricks and push each other. Also the chair lift banter is always memorable.
Cohen, if you could change one thing about Nic what would it be?
His dreadful taste in music.
Nic, if you could change one thing about Cohen what would it be?
I’d give him baggy pants so he doesn’t have to look like a newborn foal.
Cohen, apparently Nic hooked up with a deaf girl in Vancouver, do you think she would of gone home with him if she could hear what he said to her?
Speaking usually does hurt Nic’s chances. I think her condition definitely improved his odds. I reckon he must have wrote down "I am the best snowboarder in this room" and shown it to her.
Nic, we heard you picked up a deaf girl in Vancouver, what was your pick up line?
My kindergarten teacher, Mrs Lowebridge used to call the roll in sign language so I still remember how to spell words in sign.
Would this be a fair assessment? Nic is younger and loves older girls, Cohen an older creep who loves younger girls?
Nic: Most girls are younger than Cohen so he has no choice. I personally love everyone.
Cohen: No but Nic does love a cougar. He once tried to pick-up a mid-forties woman in Whistler and she told him go find someone his own age.
Have been told you both blow it with the ladies because one is too emotional and the other is way too keen? Who is who?
Nic: Years of emo-punk has left Cohen a very emotional man, so he takes that one.
Cohen: Nic is younger and can be very forward and he does have a bit of a fascination with older women. However, I have to deny those horrible accusations. I have a wonderful girlfriend who is of appropriate age.
Who cuts the rug best and has the most stylish dance moves on the Wednesday night?
Nic: My best moves on Wednesdays these days are juggling limes behind the bar at work so Cohen’s probably the Wednesday night king.
Cohen: For one of the whitest boys alive, Nic has remarkable dance skills. Although, they do solely rely on hip hop music.
Ok lastly who would you say is the captain of the Capita/Union/686/Dragon Australian team?
Nic: Agghh the never-ending struggle. It usually varies from day to day. I think it should be whoever has more Instagram followers... @nic_harvey
Cohen: We usually award that honour to whoever placed highest in the most recent snowboarding contest. Nic usually chokes in comps so captaincy usually resides with yours truly. ▲
