Eiki and Halldor Helgason step up to the ear can A-Team.
If you’re clueless as to who these two Icelanders are you really need to get with the program. Brothers Eiki and Halldor are two of the hottest and most amusing characters in the shred right now. They’re both as ridiculously tech on kickers as they are on multi-kink rails of death. Halldor recently bagged an X-Games big air gold with what’s perhaps the laziest, überstyled front double cork 1080 and backside double 12 whereas Eiki’s busy trying to nail himself another eye-popping stand out part in the latest Rome movie, The Shred Remains.
Halldor’s best front 10 double ever. And a flawless back 12 double too…

And now long-time sponsirs Skullcandy have upped their standing to members of the elite Global Pro team. “I have been down with Skullcand from day one, long before I was sponsored by them,” says Eiki. Of course, Halldor has to one-up his bro: “Skullcandy is the shit! They have the sweetest headphones out there!” Skullcandy’s marketing honcho Erik Abrahamsson, the guy responsible for the bigger cheques, honked “I’ve been watching the Helgasons the last two years, seeing them evolve into the dynamic duo they have now become. They’re a perfect fit for the Skullcandy program and we are aching to see the awesomeness coming out of this partnership. Welcome aboard, brothers!”
Skullcandy are also supporting the brothers’ website/blog/area of internet amusement – helgasons.com. As Halldor put it, “with their help we will soon be bigger than Facebook!” If you haven’t checked it out yet, you owe it to yourself to go there now. Funny. Ass. Shit.
