Gnarly Selfies: Mike Basich’s book of self-portraits

A still from the shoot of Mike’s ‘Mountain Yeti’ GoPro advert


With his pioneering Alaskan shredding, Mike Basich has often been ahead of his time. And not just with his riding, either; for the last 15  years – since way back when Instagram and the iPhone were beyond the wildest dreams of even the most preening egomaniac – he was snapping himself regularly, both via remote cameras and at good ol’ arm’s length. Having amassed a huge collection, he’s decided to get the best ones made up into a book.

His Kickstarter is live, and he’s looking for a cool $3000 in order to get his 130-page tome made. Perks include limited-edition canvases of the ‘Monster Yeti’ shot seen above, and also this famous heli-drop pic taken with a remote camera – possibly the most famous snowboard selfie ever?
