The Jumps That Changed Snowboarding

I don’t usually do re-blogs, but while doing some research for a video on injury prevention that I’m recording for our vip members inside our Snowboard Trick Secrets program, I stumbled upon this old article on Whitelines Magazine:

The article goes over the history of some of the big iconic jumps that impacted snowboarding from the famous Mt. Baker road gap to Chad’s Gap which many thought was an impossible jump for snowboarders to hit.

For example, how many of you know about David Benedek’s stepover jump where he landed the first double cork 1080 before this whole double cork madness began?

Anyhow, I found it a good read that you guys might enjoy, so I thought I’d share it. If you have an interest in snowboard freestyle and want to know how we ended up where we are today, I highly recommend checking out the article.

It’s always good to know a little about the history of snowboarding.

  1. I’ve been in Innsbruck for this years Air & Style and it was absolutely remarkable — one if not the best event I ever attended! If anybody gets the chance to get there as well, you should seriously take it. 🙂

    • The air and style is always such a fun event to watch! I love that some riders are bringing super stylish tricks with tweaked out Japan Airs inside their big air runs these days.
