The last issue for this season of Snowboard Canada just dropped and Feet Banks and I have a feature in it. I am so happy with the way it turned out, the design team there knocked it out of the park. It is so great to have the support of SBC they are not afraid to take chances when you come at them with a bit of a different idea, something you don’t see much of in any other snow industry publication these days. A big thank you to the rider’s that were involved, they not only killed it in the backcountry but went the extra mile for the portraits as well. Thanks so much to everyone that helped pull this one off.
I have never really shot much of the urban side of snowboarding although when I was younger it was how I started out riding, in the mean streets of Pembroke Ontario. After hitting the big slopes of the local convent and golf course we would poach as many handrails as we could around town. These days it blows my mind what they are getting up to in the streets after watching the Real Snow videos that have been making the rounds. I haven’t seen Chris in a while but I always liked to shoot with him because his riding was so skate influenced and he was always down to try and find a different spot around town when the snow was bad.
