Satchel Cronk / @satchscratch


Self Portrait Marin County November 2016 I m always pushing myself to find beautiful locations and exciting conditions to shoot but on this one my heart was beating particularly quickly as I ran back and forth between takes. I d been past this spot many times and thought about shooting there sometime but on this particular morning it was as if West Marin knew I was coming and put on a special effects show.




Josh Woodward / @CoffeeHouseMedia


California is a place of wonder. We d been checking for a good sunset for quite a long time and we finally got that golden-orange we were hunting for. Rider Alec Grogan-Crane. IG coffeehousemedia

 He is one of the nicest dudes too. I was riding at his local spot and cracked my fullface helmet within my first 5 minutes of riding. He let me borrow his helmet on and off for the rest of the day so I could get runs in.

 I like this voting format much more than what's used in POY. Although the bracket system sounds great and exciting initially, it does mean a lot of really good shots are axed in the first round against photos that were only slightly more favored. Not to mention all those roost shots hanging around for so long.

Any chance of a rating system being introduced for POY?
