Exploring the mountains of Alaska has been a life-long dream for me and this season I am doing everything I can to make that dream come true. When I saw that Snowboarder Magazine and Tailgate Alaska were giving away $5000 towards a trip to the Tailgate AK event my hopes were raised. I’ve been trying to bag as much footy as possible this season, despite it being the driest Utah winter in recorded history. So I threw some of it together and put my hat in the ring.
While I’m not a fan of facebook popularity contests, I figured it was worth a try. If nothing else it is another platform for more people to be exposed to the possibilities of ripping down mountains without the help of the old training wheels. While it was one of the favorites, the edit didn’t win the contest. So I will be making my Alaska dream come true the Grassroots way.. through hard work and personal sacrifice. One way or another I will make it to Alaska to surf the biggest mountains in the world this year.
Here’s a look at my submission. Thanks to my homies for helping me get shots!
Bryan Iguchi can hold his own on any board. He kills it when it comes to snowboarding, skateboarding, surfing, and of course… powdersurfing. The man is a straight up legend on so many fronts. We are stoked to have Bryan backing our boards! Peep this quick run in the JH backcountry with The Guch and check his blog post here.
Did he land that kickflip? You never really know with still shots… Here’s the story behind the still shot on the cover of Starfish Magazine 2012 Interview Edition.
