Ever seen an elbow grab?

The guys at Nonstop Adventure just hit us up to tell us about one of the riders on their freestyle course in Banff.

Patrick “Stumpmaster” Heaney was born with no arm from the elbow down, but as you can see from the shots he hasn’t let it hold back his snowboarding. According to Nonstop, “He ripped in the park. He was throwing backflips in the second week and just got better and better as the season went on.”

Apparently, Patrick reckons anyone who can’t grab with their elbow isn’t trying hard enough! Let that be a lesson to anyone who struggles to reach their tail eh?
