Bryan Fox and Austin Smith partnered with storyteller Liam Gallagher to document a season of their experiences and showcase their slice of snowboarding. Collaborating with fellow boarders Tim Eddy, Curtis Ciszek, Shaun McKay, Alex Yoder, Rube Goldberg, Rip Zinger and more. These intrepid friends created a movie that provides apt examples of why collectively, we will all do whatever it takes to be able to strap in at the top of a line and make rolling arcs downhill. From powder turns, to steep backcountry lines, to a whole segment filled just with half-buried snowmobiles, every shot in Pathology is a blatant reminder of why we snowboard.
I knew Ken as a snowboarder. From his method photos on the Stevens website, to seeing his big backside spins in the park, Ken was truly one of my first NW influences -- and at the time I didn't even know it. Whenever Ken was riding with me -- or anyone for that matter -- there was a feeling of trust and confidence that kept me feeling safe for some reason. I was lucky enough to ride with Ken on his last few days, in which there was a memorable line that we ripped simultaneously and a tiny bit of footage that gives me the chills when I watch it.
