Here at Onboard we love a good knuckle trick. Fuck that giant kicker, just fly past the take-off, launch over the tabletop, boost off the knuckle and fly past your homies as they cheer you on.
This year has seen some seriously wild variations get caught on film and we’re fully down with what’s been happening. Progression doesn’t only have to exist on the jumps themselves, so it’s great to see riders getting creative and trying weird and wonderful new tricks. A whole new wave of park riders are getting creative on the features in front of them and pushing the boundary’s of what should be possible on a snowboard. The likes of Marcus Kleveland, Mons Roisland and Fridtjof Tischendorf are setting the internet alight every time they post a new one, but let’s not forget those that set this whole craze off in the first place. Just think of Lens Jorgensen blasting his way over knuckles in the RK1 days of old.
Knuckle tricks are the new carve. You heard it here first. On a separate note, please excuse how we named most of these tricks, we have no idea what they’re actually called..
Here are the best ones we’ve seen this year but feel free to add any suggestions in the comments below, there are sure to be some we missed.
