Dustin Craven graces the cover of the 2013 Snowboard Magazine Buyer’s Guide

We are excited to present the cover of the 2013 Buyer's Guide with pro shred Dustin Craven showing us some serious style and insanely huge balls. Let’s face it, that’s one gnarly method!

The photo was taken by photographer Russell Dalby in Whistler, BC, while on a trip with the Videograss crew. “Near the end of the season Dustin was on a mission to get a perfect method shot. I had a couple of shooting days lined up with him so I made it my mission too,” said Dalby. “While the rest of the Videograss crew was building jumps, Dustin and I went to search for natural spots to hit and came across this cliff. In the course of a normal season I would probably shoot 5-10 methods tops, but we must have shot 50 methods in those 2 days. Stoked this one made it!"

The Buyer's Guide has started to hit mailboxes as we speak, so be on the lookout for your copy.
