October Print Sale: Part 4!

Hi friends,

If you've ever met Chris Dufficy and not been moved to become a better person you may have a missing gene. Simply put, he's one of the greatest humans ever to strap into a snowboard. In 2001 we were filming a little movie called True Life for a now defunct snowboard company called Forum. It was the best. Great crew, great riding, good times.

This shot is from a zone called Face Mountain on the hurley river road. We pioneered a lot of new zones in those days and as a result there was a lot of time when we'd be the only crew in an area. Face was like that for a long time.

This print is perfectly sized at 16 x 20 inches on super gloss paper made from butterfly wings. It's all yours for $179 plus actual shipping. $40 bucks from this print sale goes to support friends and family in my life who are battling cancer. My brother Garry and friend Chris Brunkhart are both dealing with the same form of colon cancer that has spread into their liver. If you don't need a photo for your wall, click through and help them out anyway.

First email in my inbox gets it. More prints coming all week long. Check out all the sold ones here and here and here.

The lost shots. Part three

Hi friends,

Part three of the lost shots is from Grouse Mountain here in Vancouver. This was from the Wildcat Challenge in the spring of 2001. On this day Duff shot his ender shot for
True Life and we shot a bunch of other stuff as well. I always liked this sequence of his gap to frontboard but compared to the 450 on/off, it was a little overshadowed.

I had a beer or two with Duff a week or two ago. He’s finishing up his training to be a firefighter. Still as awesome as ever. Big grins for the win.



It used to be a cover

This was once a cover of Snowboarder Magazine. They sent me a great package of history this week to help me with the book. Thanks Pat.

I'm off for my "stag" which means I'm going to fish for two days with some friends. And that is all I have to say about that. Have a great weekend.
