Peter Line 2013 TransWorld SNOWboarding Legend Award
Peter’s always had the tricks. There was the first corked spin in TransWorld SNOWboarding Video Magazine Volume 1 #1 in 1993. He had the first backside rodeo in his 1997 Mack Dawg Simple Pleasures part. Peter led the charge on frontside heel edge spins and going huge switch. All of it helped earn him numerous TransWorld SNOWboarding Riders’ Poll awards in the past. Over a decade later Peter was still innovating as one of the first to do handplant transfers in his Forum Or Against ‘Em part.

But that’s only part of why we’re giving Peter the 2013 TransWorld SNOWboarding Legend Award on Friday, February 1 at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver. As much as Peter contributed to the progression of the sport he’s also added to its culture of weird. See his 1993 Division 23 “masturbation” ad. His Forum Fear And Loathing pro model. The gnome and deer props on his 2004 TransWorld SNOWboarding cover. The Peddie Files. The photo of him kissing himself as the intro to his self interview on his website peterlinedesign.com.

On the industry side Peter played a pivotal roll in bringing together JP Walker, Devun Walsh, Joni Malmi, Chris Dufficy, Jeremy Jones, Bjorn Leines, and Wille Louma to create The Forum 8, one of the strongest and most influential teams snowboarding has ever seen. Today Peter has his own photography and design studio in Seattle, Washington where he made graphics for Forum boards and continues to do other design work. This past season he began designing Foursquare’s 2014 line before it was shuttered along with Forum and Special Blend.
For everything that Peter has done for snowboarding so far, join us in honoring him with the 2013 TransWorld SNOWboarding Legend Award.
