My memory sucks and I was trying to find the release date of Neoproto’s “Everyday Something”, which linked me around the internet to the old MDP-People website. I laughed when the page popped up. It’s a photo of me with a backlip on a drop rail in Minnesota, while filming for the first release of People. I ate shit hard on this one, smashing my face on the ground. I think I landed one, but we didn’t put it in my video part that year.
Here’s the link.
On a similar note, here’s my first (riding) published editorial shot in the Feb 2003 Transworld. Shot by Ryan Hughes (now Snowboarder Magazine photo editor).
