Burton riders Charles Reid, Peetu Piiroinen, Marko Grilc, Stephan Maurer, Seppe Smits and Kazuhiro Kokubo hit up this monster cheese wedge in Sun Valley to shoot for Standing Sideways. The result? One hell of a session.
If you’re in any way interested in watching snowboarding done off kickers, you will be pumped on this. For the spinophiles Charles Reid lays down a cab 1440 and Seppe Smits Seppe-stomps a back 12 dub-ish; if slow style is more your bag then Stephan Maurer and Peetu Piiroinen‘s front 3s and 5s will have you bugging. But, really, it’s all about Kazuhiro Kokubo‘s entry into the ‘Best Backside 180 Ever’ awards. Jesus, that thing is a frickin’ monster.
