As snowboarding contests keep evolving, with new tricks each year to amaze us, it’s still an individual riders video part that remains the benchmark by which they are measured. The commitment to filming enough footage in this internet age of instant gratification is commendable enough. For each part we’ve looked at the level of riding, variety of tricks and terrain, technical difficulty and most of all the overall feel that you come away with.
These are the top nominees…
Halldor Helgason – Dayumm!
Frank Bourgeois – 4, Brothers Factory
Jesse Paul – Real Snow, X Games 2017
Torstein Horgmo – Stronger, The Union Team Movie
Bode Merrill – Reckless Abandon
