http://mpora.com/videos/zeWxLMcli A corker of a vid, Progression‘ is the fourth segment from a collection cut out of the 2009/2010 Swatch TTR TV Show series. The 2009/10 season was a year where the game changed on the TTR Tour with riders learning different variations of double corks in both the pipe and on the slopestyle course.
Shaun White, Luke Mitrani and Louie Vito all blew the top off the double cork trend in the halfpipe at the 2009 Burton New Zealand Open and set a new standard on the competition circuit. In this video, we hear from Marko Grilc, Mikkel Bang, Louri Podladtchikov, Christian Haller, Torah Bright, Torstein Horgmo, Travis Rice and US Snowboard Coach, Bud Keene, on what it’s like to do a double cork and how this type of trick has pushed the progression of snowboarding. Alongside the interviews is footage of Travis Rice and David Benedek throwing doubles at the 2006 Air and Style Munich and shots of Sebastien Toutant, Shaun White, Marko Grilc, Louri Podladtchikov and others flaunting their double cork skills.
