Craig Kelly: A Look Back

Yesterday marked the 8th anniversary of the passing of Craig Kelly. Craig's contribution to our sport cannot be measured. He pioneered modern shapes on snowboards, made Jake Burton realize the importance of listening to team riders and showed the world that there was more to professional snowboarding than competition.

We take a look back at one of the most inspirational legends in snowboarding through a gallery of iconic shots. We ride for you Craig Kelly.
