TransWorld SURF Photo Annual
1987: TransWorld SNOWboarding first issue releases in the Fall of 1987 with then TransWorld SKATEboarding Editorial Director Kevin Kinnear as editor and seasoned surf and skate photo editor Guy Motil. The issue focused on stories of pro riders first experiences with snowboarding, a breakdown of the Worlds competition in Breckenridge, Colorado and the North American Championships in Banff, Canada. Craig Kelly also launched his own trick tip column Techniques, which included roast beefs, 360 air-to-fakies, and other cutting-edge freestyle tricks.
When we first met Ken and his merry men at the Worlds in Breckenridge, it was instant friendship. Luckily for us, Ken was a surfer and actually knew all about Breakout and Guys awesome surf photography. They were already followers of TransWorld Skateboarding Magazine and knew what we could do.
After that first season was over and Guy single-handedly scored enough great photos to produce three issues, we spent the summer working hard trying to ignore the endless South Swells breaking nearby with our fellow surfer and design genius, David Carson, who created a vibrant visual look for our new baby. David later went on to international fame as an award-winning graphic designer specializing in tweaking typography. 2b1af7f3a8
