18 year old Swiss snowboarder David Hablützel has had a crazy season in 2014, with results like a 5th place finish at Sochi and 3rd at the Burton US Open. Watch him send it in the pipe and on kickers and rails in his season edit.
In a day and age where specialisation is increasingly becoming the norm, it’s refreshing to see snowboarders who aren’t just one trick ponies. Although David Hablützel is first and foremost a halfpipe rider, he’s also pretty damn good on kickers and rails. His season edit is roughly split into those three sections and each is solid in its own right.
David had one of his best seasons ever in 2013/2014, finishing in 5th right behind Shaun White at the Sochi Olympics and in the bronze podium position at the US Open. We’re expecting big things from him next winter!
