Spinning. That’s what we remember this part for. There’s that weird spinny camera angle at the start, and the almost constant sight over the two minutes that follow of Jussi’s maroon base spinning towards the camera as he lands yet another tech park trick into powder. All in all, it was a great advert for the Burton Custom.
Sure, this kind of thing is bread and butter to the street rats of today, but it’s worth remembering that few riders back then could top Jussi for cross discipline tech-ers
Funnily enough though, the highlight is a good old backside 180 melon (1.54) that’s sent a full 30 metres and tweaked to perfection. Jussi’s switch 50-50 to 180 out on a nasty down-flat-down-flat–down (1.50) is also worth a mention – sure, this kind of thing is bread and butter to the street rats of today (and they’ll do so in a more painfully cool skate style, without the GoreTex) but it’s worth remembering that few riders back then could top Jussi for cross discipline tech-ers.
Aside from all that, this part boasts a soundtrack that screams TB heyday. Random, heavy and strangely catchy, it’s Meatloaf meets Metallica – the ideal earworm for Jussi to end his part with a spot of early dual snowboarding.
