The X Games Real Snow are back in 2012 for it's second edition, this video contest version of the X gather together the top 8 of the best street riders; the format of the comp leave more space for creativity and originality. It seems like they finally understood that snowboarding is not all about a performance at a given moment.
Let's start with the crazy edit of Halldor Helgason... double corks in street, how insane is that ?
The team manager from Salomon Java Fernandez, ex filmer for Mac Dawg, keep on release some exclusive footages from his hard drive... And Java, he is so cool that he put all the riders from the trip, not only those who rides for Salomon. Here is a trip in Stockholm featuring : Jed Anderson, Bode Merrill, Louif Paradis, Chris
Carr, Gus Engle, Nick Dirks, etc, etc etc... Simple is efficient.
The Farm, it's a secret spot hidden a few kilometers away from Munich where
twenty international riders came together for an
invitational Best Trick session just before the close ISPO started. From Jed Anderson to Alex Tank, Victor De Le Rue or even Marc Swoboda, they all showed up. Three english boys were even invited: Jamie Nichols (that landed on our cover), Sparrow Knox and Tom Guilmond. Here is a cool video of the session by Isenseven (hell yeah), after the jump you'll find a big article and a huge portfolio. Enjoy.
