An oft-used shortcut to a good caption is the repurposing of a common joke to relate to a given photo. Examples of this in snowboarding magazines would be any captions that start with “Knock, Knock…,” “There once was a rider from Nantucket…,” or “How many jibbers does it take to….” Using this sort of methodology on the following photo could lead one to, oh we don’t know, maybe channel a Helen Keller joke? Of course, this is Halldór Helgason, so that wouldn’t work. Or could it? “Helen Kelgason reading the snow conditions at Superpark.” No? Well, let’s see if you can do better. Seriously. Do it. Just scroll down and leave your caption as a comment…. and the rest is up to you. Unless you’re blind—then you’re shit outta luck.
