Craig Kelly strapped on his first board before snowboarders were even allowed on the slopes of his home mountain, Mount Baker. He was one of the first professional snowboarders – killing it not only in pipe but also as a racer. Despite being crucial to the development of freestyle snowboarding, he made the decision to back out of contests at the top of his career and many followed his call for freeriding.

At 36 years of age he tragically died in an avalanche, while guiding a group of skiers and snowboarders, but his timeless Methods are going be stuck in our heads for a long, long time to come.
