I love the footage in Let it Ride; I love watching Craig ride--still, in my opinion, the smoothest snowboarder ever. When Craig died it was the only time in life when I felt like I'd lost a hero. I got to ride with him once - he was railing groomers the whole time, fakie - smoother and faster than anyone else was regular... By a lot.
Does anyone know the name of, or how to get their hands on a copy of the documentary that was done on his road-trip to Chile? As I recall it was produced by one of his bros who was on the trip a year or two before Craig's passing. It was available in limited quantities for awhile but I've found nothing of it since. I'd love to get my hands on a copy; thanks in advance for any tips.

Much respect Craig stuck me as somewhat haunted in the more recent parts of the film, just had that look. Then again I find most people at the top of their chosen endeavor tend to be that way, perhaps a sort of giving over of oneself to the universal energy that drives them. I wish there were more people like CK in snurfing.
