Snowboarding, Surfing, + The Culture of ‘Yesterday’ | Motivations of Bryan Fox: Boards, water, slopes, + speed
Bryan Fox is really living the snow surf lifestyle these days and he just put out ‘Yesterday‘ which is one of the most ‘make you want to get out there and snowboard’ films of 2017. Even thought the only real “tricks” are turning left and turning right. The most OG tricks there are.
Do you feel like snowboarding and surfing are getting more similar?
There are definitely more people doing both now. I think a lot of ideas are crossing over, too. I have this line of boards with Nitro called the Quiver. The concept is to have options that you’re meant to ride in different conditions, which is a complete rip-off of surf mentality. And I think snowboarding culture is becoming like surfing in the sense that you can age with. You can have fun and love it without having to do crazy shit. That’s one of the coolest things about surfing. A 70-year-old can enjoy the ocean just as much as a 12-year-old. Now, more people are realizing that you can be old and have a great time just riding a board down a mountain. I love that.
