The Snowboarder's Journal:
"What the snowboard industry does doesn’t really affect me in any way. I live in southern Vermont, so far away from anyone in the industry, and am making classes for people to build boards. Those nose and tail shapes are mostly suggestions for people who want to take a class, and a lot of people go off of that and don’t stick to that script. Some [templates] are only there because we think they look awesome..."

1996 - Vail Pass
This shot was taken at Vail Pass, while Shem and I were waiting for my car to be fixed in Vail. We were driving my 91 VW Fox from VT to CA, when the alternator had died in Nebraska on Easter Sunday. We bought another battery for it, drove 300 miles and tried to get it fixed in Denver, but of course it was Easter Sunday and no garages were open. So we decided to roll the dice and headed up the hill to Vail. The whole drive up I was sweating about that long tunnel we'd have to pass through, and how if the car battery died, it would shut the whole car down, lights and all, and we'd be stuck in the middle of the tunnel and probably get rammed into in the darkness and die. On Easter. Anyway, we made it, the car quit just as we pulled into Vail, and pushed it right into a service station. The next day I shot this image. Ali Goulet has awesome style.
