Put that in your pipe!!


Modern Pipe riding seems to be getting further and further away from how normal human beings ride, as the “athletes” get more… well athletic, pipe becomes more of a gymnastic showcase, at least 10 years ago, it used to be at least within’ some peoples grasp… but this run from the Ginger one just goes to show how far from laying down a winning pipe run us mere mortals we are…

This is one of the best halfpipe run ever performed on a snowboard. Frontside lien air, to backside 900 melon, followed by a frontside 1080 stalefish, into a Cab double cork 1080 stalefish, to frontside double cork 900.

    TTR is always sick especially the 6 star events (Air & Style, Nissan Nippon Open and BGS events) Thats where the new tricks are usually on display. I agree the Olympics mean nothing to snowboarders..Caught some events on go211…Torstein Horgmo was smooooth as usual in slopestyle….

  4. Torstein is one of my fav riders, all the scanners are so smooth and natural..

    looking fwd to the winter games NZ as well http://www.wintergamesnz.com/

    even though it’s an FIS event, should be a decent amount of riders going for olympic selection nice and early so could see a really good field in the slopestyle.

    and then Winter X Games Europe in March should be awesome, especially as Tignes is such a killer resort.

      Tignes is awesome and very snowboarder friendly and also situated next to Val D siere my favourite resort 🙂

      Torstein has the best switch back 12 in the game and a sick style….Norwegian riders rock. Glad DC finally made him pro..
