Mental snowboard event highlights Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past year, you’ll have noticed the rise and rise of the Helgason brothers, Eiki and Halldor. This Icelandic duo have been snapped up by Rome and DC respectively and have been setting the snowboard world alight with their unique talent and slightly left field approach. Halldor in particular made the industry sit up and take note with a perfect score in the X-Games Big Air. Check out that insane trick here. Their website,, documents their exploits on snow and skateboards, and the latest update comes from an event they’ve organised called ‘The Oxborn Session’. In the words of filmer Johannes:

“The Oxborn session is not really a contest, it’s friends trying new wild shit at the same time. It’s where Halldor and many others tried their first dobble corks. It was crazy to see the wildest Oxborn session so far. Halldor did the highest air but I puked at that time so I did not get that shit on film…”

That pretty much says it all. Sit back and enjoy!
