Joe

It's been 10 years since Joe left us. We miss him. Here's a pretty good blurb from the BBC.

BJ Leines' IP2

Over the years shooting film and video of snow shreds I've been lucky enough to work with BJ quite a few times. So stoked to see him still on his game! Here he is still killing it again. Hope to see you again this year brother.

Baker Pow from K2

Here's an edit from K2 at Mt. Baker last season. If it doesn't make you want to shred some stormy Baker pow I don't know what will. Thanks K2!

Anyone ready for winter?

Refused

I'd been waiting for this all summer. As far band reunions go, Refused had to be the most unexpected and welcome one I could dream of. Worth the wait. One of the best shows I've ever seen! Oh yeah - and The Bronx opened too!

Bikes and Beaches

I just spent a few days over on Hornby Island riding my bike and beach-combing. I had always heard good things about the place but never had the chance to go there until now. If you get the chance to go, do it. It gets busy in the next few months, but it felt like we had the place to ourselves. The calm before the storm I think.

Friendly green bike trails.

Lots of these guys.

Local flavor.

A 3 ferry journey from the mainland.

Yum!

Eagles everywhere.

... and deer.

Super interesting coastlines...

... and creatures!


Cycling by the sea.

The thickest bark I think I've ever seen.

Whaling Station Bay - just add a Corona.

Grassy Point sunset.

Farewell Hornby!

Jeff Patterson Slideshow

Here's Jeff's show from last night's Pro Photographer Showdown in Whistler. We've worked together a fair bit during the last few seasons. There's some good memories in there. Cheers Jeff!

fIREHOSE

Crawford + Hurley + Watt = fIREHOSE.
I finally got to see fIREHOSE a few nights ago! Bellingham was as far north as the tour came, so that's where I was on Monday. This was stop 4 on the tour and the band was sounding great. Lots of smiling faces on the floor and the stage. Check out Watt's Tour Diary here.

Barfoot on Powder & Rails

Powder & Rails has the Barfoot story up. Last summer I helped Trevar Cushing from Powder & Rails get some interviews with some Canadian shreds of yesteryear. This is P&R's first stab at the Canadian scene. Hopefully we can do some more. Click on over to Vice for more.

Supernatural is on!

Travis Rice's Supernatural contest at Baldface is up and running! Check out Scotty Lago getting first crack at it.
Lago lovin it!
This is the coolest thing to happen in the sport in a while. So jealous of all my friends that are seeing it go down as I type this. Can't wait to see it all and hear the stories!

Craig Kelly

Here's one of my favorite photos. My brother took it years ago. A huge blow up of this shot hung in his living room (well, Don's living room) in Whistler for years. Nine years ago we lost one of snowboarding's greats. Maybe the greatest. Cheers Craig!

“Nothing beats snowboarding at a mountain that offers the right lines. Whether it’s hopping rocks, jumping cliffs, board-sliding the nearest strip of metal or wood, simply carving a nice bank or popping an air over a small knoll, freeriding is where it’s at. Whenever the conditions allow, my snowboarding objective is to use the mountain to its fullest potential.” –Craig Kelly
