Forest Bailey at The Launch

Picture 1 of 24

People complain about Forest Bailey having a small stance and SNOWBOARDER agrees. Obviously it has gotten a little ridiculous. If you measure his stance in this photo it is less than a 1/4 centimeter wide! R: Forest Bailey P: Huggy

The Launch 2010 presented by Rip Curl is now under way at Keystone, CO. Day 1 went off with less than desirable conditions with snow & wind, then sun, and then snow again. It was a roller coaster day, but these riders are hyped and charging no mater what the condition. Check out the photo gallery by Photo Editor Ryan Hughes, and Senior Photographer E-Stone. Pat Bridges gives the days run down with the photo captions.
