To paraphrase Rick Springfield, we wish that we had Jesse's skills.

The Minnesota master Jesse Paul dropped one of the finest parts of 2016, with one banger in particular making our Best Tricks Of The Year list. Now he's the focus of Sessions' Always Have Always Will series.

While we're utterly un-shocked that a guy of his talents says that snowboarding is his favourite thing to do, the voiceover is still pretty endearing. As for the action, it's a brilliant mix of archive grom footage and modern-day park slaying, all filmed at his home resort of Elm Creek.

We've thoroughly enjoyed this series and its appreciation of local heroes, so be sure to check out the other episodes.
