F-Stop: Bob Plumb
Here Bob demonstrates that a picture is worth anywhere from 120 to 200 words….
Me and my dogs. This Photo was shot by the Blog master Justin Meyer. I grew up in the hood of Salt Lake City on a street called Harvard ave. My Dad Sells real estate and so with a job like that and a street named after a nice college you can imagine how hood I am. This photo reflects who I am as a person. Lily is my dog and Dottie is my Women’s dog. They are Pound rescues, more hood than any pit-bull so they too reflect our hood lifestyle. To add to my Street Cred. Cheree my women grew up in a trailer. Like I said. I’m hood. If you think this is serious then you sa FOOOO!!
Mikey Leblanc is the fucking Boss of all Bosses and is a legend and an Icon for many reasons one being snowboarding. He has been my favorite snowboarder for so long. Him and J2. This photo is from a day in Alaska when we went to hike Turnagain (No idea how To spell this) We had dream of building jumps but found out half way through our hike that there was 2 inches of crust on 2 feet of powder. Not so sweet. We thought if we hiked higher maybe the crust layer would disappear but no such luck. Side not to self never go hiking without snow shoes. I post holed for a bout 5 hours which felt like 10. When it came time to ride down my legs were jello. I could not stand up and ride down. I rag dolled about 5 different times. Nothin like having your snowboarding Idol stand there waiting for you watching you rag doll. Humbling experience. All I could think about was what a fucking kook I was.
LNP this was shot on the same trip as Mikey’s but Different day. LARent as I like to call him is one of the fucking funniest guys I know. He single handedly changed my perception of French Canadians. I thought they were all pompous fucks. But LARent is nothing like this. He is part of Steam Room/ Skate style crew. Inside joke. He loves being called LNP by the way. He is pure magic on the board. I am glad he ditched his spandex pants though for jeans. I’m not a hater but… WHOOPS.
Jonas Michilot photo was shot for Keegan Valaika’s Company Gnarly Clothes. Everyone hates on the companies name but it’s a joke or not to be taken serious. It’s not like oh we are soooo fucking Gnarly BRO we named our company after that. People should just realize the name is funny and pretty sweet. Nothing should be taken to serious. Besides it’s a SNOWBOARDING company OWNED by SNOWBOARDS for SNOWBOARDERS. So why not support the right people. The team is ridiculous and my favorite person on the team is Timmy Ronin. Long live BozWreck.
Gus Engle is a dirty hippie. This photo has a sun dog with a flare. Something I had never seen before. Gus is so under rated as a snowboarder. He’s one of the most mellow guys I know and his board control is insane. We stayed at his house which was a crazy experience it self. I woke up the first morning of sleeping there to his brother, Max 2 inches from my face “whooooo are yooooooou” he said in Hellboy’s tone. Then just walked off. He would also Growl and flex his muscles looking in the mirror. Gus Talks exactly like his dad which is pretty funny too. Overall a Great time. Look out for his part this year… FIIIIIIIIRE (Hellboy tone)
Chris Grenier is a snowboarder turned Catalog model. He is handsome and he knows it. Fucking really Handsome but all he has is one look. He really needs to step it up if he’s going to compete with Paxon. I mean Polo or LRG. Tough call. In this gap Backlip photo I was thinking of that sick ass Supra add Ellington had awhile ago. I like shoot shit form the back… no homo. It’s sweet to kind of see what the rider in the photo sees. Ya dig. Grendezz is hilarious no stop laughing. He actually kind of sounds like a Hyena when he laughs. And loves to check out his footage and stress about the way he does shit ad goes back and forth from wanting to do it again and it’s good. “Hey Meyer can I see that. ahhhh mmmmmm ah I’m aaaa I’m just gonna do it again” SFK bitch
Keegan Valaika is a young Boss. He’s my adopted little brother along with Cale Zima. He used to stay at my house when he was filming BozWreck 2. I’m pretty sure I was the 1st person to give him weed Brownies. I remember He came out here one year to film jumps at the end of the season. Joe Brook From SLAP was in town with some skate homies and I was showing them around. So to keep Keegan’s mind away from filming I just kept him on a steady diet of Brownies for breakfast He didn’t mind cause he loves skating and was hyped to roll around and see those guys in person. You can’t fuck with Keegan. He does Gnarly shit and has one of the best styles in snowboarding today. He has a good head on his shoulders and truly loves snowboarding for the right reasons. 2 of his favorite snowboarders are Matty Ryan and Nate Bozung oh and Chris Bradshaw. nough said. Look out for Givin Productions One. Funny name kind of like Gnarly clothes… hahah Just kiddin
