Watch Bode Merrill’s UNBELIEVABLE Full Part From ‘Reckless Abandon’

You know that kid at school that was annoyingly good at everything? That was Bode Merrill. In fact maybe this explains why he doesn’t get the Travis Rice/Scott Stevens levels of hype he so clearly deserves; he just makes us all sick.

This extended full part from Salomon’s Reckless Abandon is a snowboarding tour de force that combines burly backcountry freestyle with technical street lines, AK gnarl and straight-up mindbending one-footers. Even the tunes are good (OK, except the first one – that’s garbage).

There are almost too many highlights here to list but if you’re too lazy to sit through all nine minutes then skip to the gravity-defying double cork on 0.19, a switch backside 5 on 1.55 (speeding into the kind of cliff most mortals would plop off) a fastplant frontflip(wtf!) on 6.26, quite possibly the world’s biggest frontflip on 7.05, a crazily stylish one-footed method 7.13 and an absolute face-melter of an ender.

As someone can be heard saying at the end, “I have no idea what just happened”.
