If you haven’t seen this yet, then stop what you’re doing and watch it right now! Halldor Helgason was already widely recognised as one of the world’s best (and best-loved) riders. But we have a feeling that in years to come this will be looked back on as the part that really cemented the young Icelandic shredder’s position at the top of the snowboarding tree.
Halldor’s got it all, from super-tech rail combos, to powder kicker skills and an eye for the sort of crowd-pleasing, frankly mental-looking shot that sticks in the memory long after everything else has faded. Yes, we’re talking about THAT backflip roof-gap, which closes this part.
But best of all (in our book at least) he does it all with a massive grin on his face, and a complete refusal to take anything – including himself – seriously.
