In the final mini-episode of Elias Elhardt’s GoPro show he tackles the infamous ‘Birthday Bowl’ in Alaska. In his own words:
Birthday Bowl is a outstanding face in Alaska, which is the best place for snowboarding I’ve ever seen. It’s as good as it gets! Watching Nicolas Müller year after year, shredding this face with his insane snowboarding, it became a real dream for me, to be there also one day.
That one morning it came true! Conditions where perfect and we flew out there first thing. I was super nervous. I was the last one to go and I wasn’t 100% sure what I would do. When I arrived at that lip I did the fs 540, without having it planed in advance. It just felt right there. After I landed on my feet again, I was just so mega hyped! Couldn’t be happier.
Though after you’ve seen the clip, you need no further explanation as to how happy he was to ride out of that one! A super clean landing as well, don’t forget to tack down a copy of Pirates Perceptions to see the full clip as shot from the heli.
