Our travels have taken us to Whistler many times with the famed bike park and valley trails. A half hour before the destination, this small town with massive rock slabs always grabs our attention. Luckily, we’ve had enough excuse to stop at this town called Squamish and take in what it has to offer. It is a quality destination in its own right and the world is about to hear more about it in the coming years.

Our friends from Freehub Magazine have harnessed the creative storytelling of local Reuben Krabbe to give us insight to this town in BC called Squamish.

Squamish Episode:

As an action sports photographer, some days often end up being more about documenting an activity rather than actually doing it. Reuben Krabbe, a Squamish local and renowned photographer, has been focusing on packing light and documenting from right beside the riders to authentically capture in-the-moment action. Joined by Stephen Matthews and Sid Slotegraaf, the trio pedal out the door to ride some classic Squamish granite and shoot photos for Freehub’s upcoming photo book.
