WHO SAID A HALFPIPE HAD TO BE HALF A PIPE?

[part title=”Arctic Challenge Quarter”]

Not exactly a halfpipe, but it has enough transition for at least two! Bigger is better, at least according to Terje Haakonsen, so when they built the various Arctic Challenge quarterpipes in the noughties it should come as no surprise that the final incarnation managed to send the man himself 9.8m above the coping. No one has gone higher since.

The Arctic Challenge will be back this year and according to the organisers will attempt to bring the true meaning of ‘free style’ back to halfpipe riding; we can’t wait to see what they come up with.
