Firing Squad: Pat Branch vs Erik Hoffman

Warming up for any activity is extremely important. In snowboarding the rock to fakie is a great way to figure out your speed for your banger. Unfortunately, the photographers that sent these photos didn’t stick around for those tricks & just sent the warm ups. Consider this your warm up photo battle. Figure out which non-trick is the best and vote.

    These could both be amazing photos. But the fence cutting off his board and the dude getting way to artsy on the second photo just ruined them both completely. Sorry dudes.
