As a long time ASP WQS pro, Snyder traveled and surfed all over the world. He appeared in magazines and videos surfing many of the world’s most challenging waves, while earning appearances in numerous videos, including “Straight from Mars,” “Walking on Water,” “The Outsiders” and the “Surf NRG Series.”
Snyder’s many adventures led to the story of his life being featured in one of the most seen surf films of all time, “Noah’s Arc.” After 17 years working with Hurley, Snyder felt the calling to focus on building his business, Momentum Fitness, based on the Outer Banks in North Carolina.

Not one to rest on laurels, Snyder entered the surf art world. As a third generation artist, his style and frame of reference is truly unique.
