Episode 2 – From Straight Lines to Triple Corks – History of Competitive Snowboarding

For competitive snowboarding, 2013 has been a year for reminiscing and good times; from legends’ sessions at O’Neill Evolution and the historical 20th Anniversary of Air&Style, to a genuine retro look and feel etched all over the Burton European and US Open.  We also saw legends like Gian Simmen saying goodbye to the competition scene and moving on to new chapters in their lives. Why have we felt so nostalgic this season? It might have something to do with the insane amount of progression the sport is currently witnessing; but we would like to stop for a minute, catch our breath and take five from concerning ourselves with the future and dive deeper into the marvellous tale of snowboarding. It’s a rich narrative, filled with some illustrious characters, such as Tom Sims and Jake Burton who wrote and starred on the first pages. It moves on, with adventurers and immortal heroes like Craig Kelly, Terje Haakonsen and Shaun White. And the story does not end there…

Chas was beyond excited with his win saying, "I'm really happy with the way I rode and to stay in first place through the last run really means a lot to me. I think it was my day today and it all came together perfect. What an amazing experience." Young American rider, Tyler Flanagan, pushed his skills to the max in his last run to take second place scoring just two points below Chas.In the women's competition, Jamie Anderson ruled the slopestyle course with her signature style and is now in an excellent position to take the 2010/11 Swatch TTR World Tour Champion title after her win in Oslo.
