So, we were watching the new series that goes behind the scenes of Jeremy Jones’ gnarly new movie, Higher this morning. It got us thinking about some of the mental lines riders have accomplished. Jezza’s shredded some seriously gnarly faces in his time, but he’s not the only one. Xavier de le Rue, Emelien Badoux, Johan Olofsson are just a few of the freeriding big names who’ve blown audiences away with their mental ability to drop the world’s steepest, craggiest, gnarliest faces and touch the bottom unscathed.

There may be a hint of lunacy behind those goggles, but man are they entertaining. Prepare to be gobsmacked.
