Legendary Photographer Bud Fawcett’s Scanner Is ON FIRE w/ Snowboard History | Don’t forget your roots!


As legendary snowboard photographer Dano Pendygrasse said about legendary snowboard photographer Bud Fawcett….

Hey Snowboard. If you’re not following Bud Fawcett right now you’re missing one hell of a show. His scanner is on fire!”

Well we got over there right away to see what all the smoke was about and indeed there were flames!

Since the late 80’s Bud has been shooting with all the legendary pro’s that helped build snowboarding as well as brands like Burton Snowboards, Sims Snowboards, and Kemper Snowboards, and all the key mags including Transworld SNOWboarding Magazine (USA + Japan), Snowboarder (USA + Germany), SB Journal, ISM, plus Snowstyle Japan.

It was hard to pick just a few samples (below), there are so many heaters. Cool to see snowboard history and roots starting to trend a little before it’s all forgotten. Snowboarding is still so new it seems silly sometimes looking back just a couple decades, but it’s important. Check out Snow Beach as well if you’re digging the styles of these 90’s madmen. It’s so hot right now!
