Time Travel Tuesdays - Johan Olofsson in TB5

It’s a nugget of pure 18-carat gold that the time machine’s thrown up today – Johan Olofsson’s legendary part from Standard’s TB5 – AKA the best video part in the world ever.

Really, we should quit this series after posting Johan’s part from TB5 because, let’s face it, we’ll never post a better clip. Legend has it that the Standard Films guys were pretty impressed with the skills of this young Swedish buck called Johan. He was turning heads with his freestyle skills and on the off chance they offered him a spot on their annual AK trip to maybe get a shot or two to fill out a small part in their forthcoming film.

Johan seized the opportunity with both hands, went ballistic and wrote himself a page in snowboarding’s legend. Filmed in 1996, this part is still insane.
