JAW DROPPING FREERIDE ACTION

Unfortunately the video we’re talking about here has never made it from DVD onto the internet – as far as we’re aware – but if you haven’t seen ’13′ by Burton yet you must. The picture above is from an earlier trip, but shows pretty clearly what we’re talking about.

As if swapping high fives with Terje Haakonsen whilst dropping into a B.C. line wasn’t enough for the opening of his section, John Jackson‘s 80 foot drop in his third shot really shows just how hard to guy can rip. He even slashes open a pillow on the way down before riding out on a near-vertical pitch. Yikes.
