This one goes out to Keith Wallace. Thanks for the live music during this Quarantine BS. This photo was taken during my annual fall photo shoot with Craig. Burton told Craig to always bring a plus one on these early season shoots. Craig had a great connection with Duckboy (FYI I’ve never called him that) Shot at Fortress Mt. Please tag Keith if he’s on the IG thing. @burtonsnowboards#rideonjake

Hey @iamdalerehberg remember that time in Argentina when you had dreadlocks?
I was told it’s Jake’s birthday. To be honest I didn’t know. Wasn’t a thing between us. The world knew Jake for so many different reasons and his infinite connections will live on and on. So ride on Jake. #rideonjake

Often I think “what would Craig do?” Like eat with his left hand to exercise another part of his brain or cross his legs the opposite of normal to keep the muscles balanced. Some of you may remember him doing weird shit like this? Anyways, I was wondering the other day what would be Craig’s mojo during this pandemic? Perhaps he would stay in touch on FaceTime and he would talk about his love and his daughter, and perhaps some highlights of the winter. Or perhaps Olivia and he would drive up to Whitewater and go splitboarding. Even if they blocked the road he would sweet talk his way like he always did. He would definitely find solace in the mountains as we all should.

2 Canadians and 2 #olympics. 2 different disciplines. 1 common goal. That common goal? Smoke weed - HA! All kidding aside, these 2 are legends in their own rights. @troubleandrew@rossrebagliati98 Both you guys made amazing impact, followed by your passions and commitment to something beyond. And I salute you.

Jake Burton heli-boarding in New Zealand 1999. These one on one trips with Jake was definitely a highlight of my career. So appreciative to have had these opportunities. #rideonjake#burtonsnowboards

Portraits of Craig are usually my favourites in my vault of Craig photos. Action was second nature when we got together. Portraits captured more of who Craig was. Like most of us when in front of the camera, it was not always easy to capture that unaware, natural, caught in the moment, feel to the image. There was a vulnerability that Craig kept to himself. I often searched for that vulnerability, the soft under belly and sometimes he would give it to me willingly. It was in the portraits that we found trust in each other. As a result, my most fond memories come from these moments of simply being still.
