The TFA crew are one rowdy bunch of riders: Flo Corzelius, Raffi Kossmann, Simon Pircher and Mario Kaeppeli, all headed by the inimitable Ethan Morgan, set about destroying Europe last season – these are the collected highlights from the carnage.
With a heavy emphasis on style rather than spinny progression, TFA are amongst the biggest haters of FIS and the spin-to-win ethos around. That much is clear when you see the likes of Ethan and Mario gunning slow, ungrabbed front 360s over huge step downs clearly designed for learning triples.
Though it was quite hard for Ethan with his Olympic dream turned into a nightmare, his TFA friends soon found a way to make him happy again
The boys put it best themselves: “All in all, TFA had a marvelous season, full of love, happiness and heavy metal. Though it was quite hard for Ethan at the beginning, with the Olympic dream having turned into a nightmare, his TFA friends soon found a way to make him happy again, borrowed a super expensive heli in Mayrhofen, organized a crazy Spring Break party in Laax and finally celebrated some mad snowporn parties in a few other parks.”
After an intense winter where Sochi was the main headline for the duration, it’s awesome to see styled out, big park riding like this. That, and the skier getting cut up at 3.15. We’ll watch that any day of the week.
