Iouri Podladtchikov's halfpipe snowboarding tricks at the TTR Burton New Zealand Open snowboarding event in 2011. The best snowboard tricks
http://www.ttrworldtour.comAt 17 years old, Canadian snowboarder Mark McMorris has already shown that he has got what it takes to be a world-class competitor. With podiums at some of the best TTR events around the globe including Burton New Zealand Open, Burton US Open, Billabong Air & Style and O'Neill Evolution, Mark has secured himself a spot at the top of competitive snowboarding and doesn't seem to slow down. With a passion for all board sports such as skateboarding and wakeboarding, Mark seems to be happiest with his feet off the ground but hasn't let his achievements in snowboarding go to his head. His goals are to make a name for himself and to become someone that people will always respect and remember -- if he keeps up his consistent and stylish riding on the international scene he should be able to reach those goals easily.
