Default 7 years today

7 years ago, Craig Kelly died in an avalanche. He was and still is my favorite snowboarder. Transworld re published one of his favorite articles today in his memory which you can check out here: remembering Craig Kelly

..... Sad day.

He's right up there with Terje and Terry Kidwell (my opinion).

It's sad. 7 years ago was my first trip to Whistler and we heard this news when we got up there. Then days and weeks later seeing everyone with 'Craig Kelly is my co-pilot' stickers on their boards.

Craig Kelly was definitely one of the greats and pursued his passion the way he wanted to. Set the standard that many have followed since. He is certainly missed.
