Womens Halfpipe Hero Sarah Burke Dies at 29

We can easily say Sarah Burke was one of the sweetest, down to earth, chill girls we have met in the industry. Spending days on end shooting with her was a pleasure indeed. It makes our stomach’s turn and our hearts drop to think that a woman that amazing and talented has been taken from us so early in life. You can read more about her injuries and what caused her death at USA Today Sports.

You will always be remembered Sarah!

Much love and our warmest feelings go out to her family.
