The 'then', the 'now', the 'future' – this is snowboarding culture on paper.

The Champ is Here: A ringside conversation with the new world champion, Scotty James

A cover fit for a champion, Scotty James isn’t just clapped into the room but carried on our shoulders as we welcome home ‘The Champ’ in issue 24 of Transfer Snowboard Magazine. Join us as we go behind our first portrait cover and have a ringside conversation with the rider from the lucky but unlikely country who disrupted the ranks and placed Australian snowboarding at the top. From tales of impending expectations that forced him to nearly quit to disrupting the ranks of riders like Shaun white, Scotty’s not holding back.

  • Snowboard Self-enlightenment: A 12-month journey of self-discovery with the Rusty Toothbrush crew.
  • Black Magic Board Building: Inside Offshore Snow Shape's new Niseko digs as told by the legendary Russ Winfield.

  • Hotham Hardcore: The untold story of Australia's first boardriders club.
  • Gear Guide 2017: Backpackers have Lonely Planet, snowboarders have this. 36 pages of wares curated by the best and weirdest in the industry.
