Todd Richards (born December 28, 1969) is a snowboarder from Paxton, Massachusetts. In the 1997–98 season, he won five out of the seven halfpipe competitions he entered. Todd pioneered the snowboard trick "the wet cat." [1] He won a Silver Medal in 1997 at the Snowboard Halfpipe World Championships at Heavenly Mountain Resort. He was a member of the 1998 US Olympic Halfpipe Team, and after being heavily favored to win the halfpipe event, finished a disappointing 16th place. He also published an autobiography, P3: Parks, Pipes, and Powder in 2003. He started his own snowboard company called O-Matic with Tara Dakides and Andreas Wiig in the 2006-2007 season. He produces a series of webisodes entitled Todcasts for Quiksilver[2] as well as a frequent announcer at snowboard events such as the Winter X Games. Todd Richards holds the esteemed honor of being invited to host a Signature Session™ at High Cascade Snowboard Camp in the summer of 2009.[3]

He is the subject of a documentary entitled "Me, Myself and I" released in 2009.[4] Todd also plays a former extreme skier, who became a doctor after a skiing accident left him paralyzed, named "Barry" in the 2001 movie Out Cold.[5]
