Ian Walsh is considered to be one of the top big wave surfers in the world. His most recent film, "Distance Between Dreams" chronicled his chase during a record-setting El Nino year. In this short video, Ian describes how Teton Gravity Research first introduced him to snowboarding and the landscape of Jackson Hole. Through his first couple of trips, he developed a relationship with TGR athlete Mark Carter, who now considers Ian a brother.
It's pretty surreal to see Ian shredding the peaks of our hometown and are stoked he has fallen in love with the mountains.
