Burton US Open has yet again left us all amazed with what can be accomplished within snowboarding. Jamie Anderson’s slopestyle gold run, Scotty James’s final run that included the jaw-dropping switch backside double cork 1260 which earned him third place in the halfpipe finals, not to mention Dusty Henricksen’s final run in the men’s slopestyle finals.

The 17-year-old American stomped a backside 1800 quad cork mute grab on the final kicker, a trick that earned the highest trick score of the day, and one that he had never even attempted prior to the comp, while casually riding in a t-shirt – yes Dusty, you effin’ legend!
“It was a super surreal feeling, nothing can beat that by a long shot.” – Dusty Henricksen.
