Frontside 540° Nose is the trick of the hour which you have to copy on every similar kicker – park or backcountry – on mother earth with as much style and power as possible. Don´t forget to show your face right into the cam after you did your Frontside 5!
This round’s winner will get from Ride Snowboards this nice snowboard binding called the “Delta MVMNT”. Starting off Ride’s Movement Series, the mobility-driven Delta is a super flexible performance Ride. With Ride’s FlexLite Highback and Convertible TL™ Toe Strap, the Delta provides an ultra-light binding that offers mobility and flex in every direction. Packed with features, but not weighed down, you can’t afford to miss this movement.
Winner of the fourth round: Niko Lansio
Niko is 17 years old, out of Finland and will have a lot of fun with his new Ride „ContraBand“ Binding. Here is the videoproof of Niko´s Frontside 180°:
