Last week we showed you Halldor Helgason warming up for his and brother Eiki’s AK Extreme contest. While ‘sketchy’ was definitely the word, it seems the comp not only went off without a hitch, but was an absolute belter:
The Helgasons have always been slightly against the grain, and this comp is no exception. While Shaun White went all the way to China to ‘present’ a big air comp, these guys took it back to their hometown with nothing more than a pile of snow and some wood. Also unlike the ginger one, they actually rode as well (well, Halldor did. Eiki was injured so took a judging role instead). He may have lost out to Gulli Gudmundsson, but just look at that smile on Halldor’s face! He calls this “the sickest contest ever” and has promised to run it every year. We really hope that’s true.
