Snowboarding, with its sweeping mountain and urban landscapes, stylish tricks and the dynamism that the medium of snow brings to the table, is surely one of the most visually exciting sports out there.
Most of us will have been inspired to take up snowboarding after seeing an amazing snowboard image - be it in a magazine or in a movie - and in all honestly, this article was simply an excuse to put loads of loads of shit-hot snowboard photography up on our website.
We hope you enjoy our a-z of snowboarding (in amazing photography).
A - Alaska
Alaska contains some of the biggest and gnarliest mountains on the planet. Every season, the world's best snowboarders make the journey up to AK to log shots for their movie projects and while the powder and terrain may be next level, it's certainly not a place for the faint of heart...
The backside 180 will forever remain one of the simplest, yet stylish snowboard tricks in the book. Done best with a melon, indy or japan grab or simply floated Devun Walsh style without a grab at all, a big, controlled backside 180 off a backcountry jump is just as difficult to do well as some of the bigger, more tech tricks.
We snowboarders are an inherently creative bunch. From our trick selection, to the way we interpret spots on the hill or in the streets to the way we document snowboarding - like this sick reflective shot of Elias Veijola by Teemu Heljo.
