The boy Nicholls has just stepped up to the plate with one full-on humdinger of an online part. Check it out.
We’ve known Jamie since he was a rug rat and watched with interest to see how he’d navigate the tricky transition from talented supergrom to fully-fledged contender. Nicholls made it look easy as supping on a brew. He’s posted some solid contest results, snagged a solid deal with Nike and has been dropping some banging video parts online over the last couple of years.
But this is without doubt his strongest to date. Despite his claims that “I didn’t film much this year but managed to get some shots to put this little edit together,” we think he’s either just playing it cool or is one über productive hammer-stacking monkey. It’s sick to see he was able to shoot a bunch of urban stuff at home in the UK, and he backs that up with some solid park shralping at our Send Off Session, in the Penken Park and various other kicker and jib spots in Europe and beyond.
The only thing that’s missing from this edit is some powder stunts, but having spoken with him we know he knows this is a chink in his armor, and that as soon as the Five-Ringed Stunt Circus in Sochi is done and dusted he’s pencilled in some time to hook up with Nicolas Müller in Laax. You can bet he’ll be
ragdolling through pow a bunch studiously learning from the master and we wouldn’t be surprised to see some BC bangers from him in next season’s edit.
Hats off, Jamie. Sick edit!
