After many years of avoiding personal requests for many of my snowboarding photos, I finally decided it’s easier to set up an online shop rather than spitting them out one-by-one on my inkjet printer. I just got the 5×7 proofs for a test and the quality is really good. The B&W’s look like the real thing. Check it out. Go to this link.

Ken Achenbach on the cover of Int’l Snowboard Magazine – January 1987
Another classic issue of ISM with Ken Achenbach leading the tour of Mt. Bachelor as well as the first ballsy board test by Tom Hsieh and the crew of ISM. “This was the friskiest board tested, the Barfoot was as loose as a goose. Well who can forget those comments from the original board test. And of course the bonus of this issue was the one and only Keith Kimmel interview, not to be missed. This issue closes with a classic ad of Shaun Palmer on the back cover.
Check out the full magazine on my issuu homepage.
