Craig S. Beck

Associate Producer/Co-Director/Editor/Cameraman – A true Renaissance man who has multiple interests and does it all, Craig has lived at Lake Tahoe since he was a teenager. His first introduction to skiing was as a press runner at the 1960 Winter Olympics at Squaw Valley, USA.

One of the original Lake Tahoe ski “hotdoggers,” he went on to produce the iconic ‘70’s ski film, “Daydreams,” which he also shot and starred in. Ever since, he has used his camera to capture miles of footage at competitions and training sessions for Alpine Meadows Freestyle and of his favorite young skiers.

A true extreme sportsman, Craig also has a passion for hang gliding and designed and manufactured his own line of hang gliders.

After children came along, he chose to settle down and has supported his family by working as a real estate broker and general contractor/builder in the Lake Tahoe and Grass Valley vicinities.

His love of skiing and other board sports is constant. For many years he resurrected an interest in the historical longboards by designing and honing dozens of pairs himself for a National Longboard competition, which he organized and held for many years in the Lake Tahoe region. This led to an Olympic demonstration spectacle at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics.

Currently, he is building and testing a new, unique surfboard design concept. Craig and wife, Cindy, are the parents of Clay, Emily and David and also the doting grandparents of four active grandsons!
