Connected: Bryan Iguchi On the Relationships Between Art, Knowledge and Snowboarding

Connected: Bryan Iguchi On the Relationships Between Art, Knowledge and Snowboarding

Posted by: Colin / added: 10.02.2014 / Comments (0)

From growing up a skateboarder and surfer in Los Angeles to the forefront of the early ‘90s freestyle scene to recent exploits including his historic descent of the Grand Teton with Jeremy Jones, Bryan Iguchi has defied pro snowboarder norms for more than two decades.

Now, at age 41, Iguchi’s legend continues to grow. One need only look from his ground-breaking riding in Volcom’s timeless 1994 film “The Garden” to his still abundant backcountry freestyle skills in V-CO Productions’ 2014 release, “Mr Plant,” for evidence. And although Iguchi has chosen to lead a relatively low-profile existence in Jackson Hole, WY, his creativity, knowledge, skills, wisdom, and understanding of his place in the snowboard world and beyond have always commanded the respect of peers, collaborators, and inspiration seekers young and old.

Iguchi talks growing up a SoCal snowboarder, the lure of the Tetons, art, lines, the natural world, developing respect for the mountains, and more.

To have known Liz Daley is to have found the source of eternal stoke.

Case in point: New Year’s Eve, 2012. It was a milky day around Mt Baker. Hadn’t snowed in a few. The forecast was dreary—low overcast with negligible snow showers. Most people were staying home to prepare for the evening’s festivities. Liz had spent the prior couple days teaching an introductory splitboarding course in the Baker backcountry and sleeping in her newly acquired (but well used) Honda CR-V in the Chair 9 parking lot. I was ambiguous about even driving up to the mountain, but she wanted to ride and claimed there might be powder out there, which she had been unable to properly ride with a half-dozen beginners in tow. So we went...
