Action Sports Photography

Snowboarder with camera

In the world of action sports, the boundaries of possibility are constantly being pushed back. 20 years ago, for example, people would have laughed you out of town if you'd told them about Billy Morgan's now legendary Quad-Cork 1800. Five years from now, however, every Tom, Dick, Harry, and Margaret will be pulling this trick out of their knickers. Such is life, and the world we live in.

Because, when the impossible is made possible it changes the way people perceive the world; it alters their perceptions of what can be achieved. In honour of the impossible, and the people who've proved that nothing is truly impossible...if you put your mind to it, here's 12 of the most impossibly awesome action sports photos in history.
