Jeff Curtes for MAAP: Passes in Italy


Words and Photos by Jeff Curtes

My first big magazine assignment took me to Italy. Nearly the exact same spot that now, nearly 25 years later, we set off to basically do the same thing. Ride, explore, get lost, drink up the local everything, and have as much damn fun as possible. Back in 1994, it was a Transworld Snowboarding Magazine feature, and having never been to Europe before, I was wide eyed and so amping for just everything that Italy does so incredibly well. We were in Italy, riding, search for snow, and just loving every minute of it.

And when the next season’s Volume of Snowboarding dropped, our trip was front and center, my first TWS cover and a full feature of our debauchery and wanderlust in Italy. Thousand of images and memories which came back the second we set foot in the country again a few weeks ago with the Maap crew to shoot their new Winter 16 collection and mostly, to ride, get lost, and have as much fun as possible. We’d also eat and drink and love everything that makes Italy, well, Italy. Doppio espresso came easily back to the tip of my tongue.

Jeff Curtes’ Team MAAP Speedvagen Disc ‘Cross

Our buddy Jeff Curtes is an exceptional photographer and part of the Speedvagen family. Living in Sydney means ‘cross season is here and this season he’s racing for MAAP, an Australian apparel company. When Jeff told me about his new team bike, I requested some photos. It sounded like an awesome build with Di2, a race geometry and no bottle bosses. Yeah…

I can’t even begin to paraphrase Jeff’s words, so check them out below, along with more photos!

When a guy like Jeff Curtes shoots photos and writes a bit of copy, you don’t paraphrase his work. Sure, you edit it down a bit but it’s best left untouched. When he contacted me to share a recent photoshoot for Australia’s MAAP, I very much obliged to let him do just that. Read on for the full account and a selection of photos from Jeff’s recent shoot on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia…
