Tapped Twice Holiday Edition – Onboard’s Greatest Grams of 2017

Onboard's Greatest Grams of 2017

Join us as we cast our eye back on 2017 and the Instagrams we posted that got you most hyped…

Hooray for Instagram! Now we need never read the labels on cleaning products again when having a poo! We’ve had more than a few bangers drop in 2017, so we decided to dive into our analytics to see which ones had gotten you the most hyped.

While it was tempting to go by the brute force method of raw views, we decided to rank these on what they call ‘Engagement’ – some fancy all-seeing algorithm thing that combines likes and comments and is, as far as we can tell, the best method of determining what had our followers frothing most.

So here ya go – re-live the 10 Grams we dropped that had you double-tapping and @ing hardest in 201!

10 – Aleksander Klerud

This Norwegian charger brought a whole new meaning to the term ‘off the chain’ back in April.

9 – Mathias Eckhoff

What do you even call that?! Frontside nose butter to Cab 9? We’ll just call it bonkers.

8 – Markus Olimstad & Mons Roisland

Olimstad and Roisland teamed up in pre-season to film edits under the MARMOR banner. This clip from their Saas Fee episode certainly brought the FROTH!

7 – Eiki Helgason

If you needed any more proof that Eiki is a Gandalf-level wizard, this carve to flatland flip should surely do it for you.

6 – Marcus Olimstad & Mons Roisland

The MARMOR duo scored another crowd favourite with this other Gram we dropped from their time in Saas Fee.

5 – Larrogs

This legendary Frenchman and Bataleon TM wasn’t about to let his team hog all the glory, so he laid out a backflip and scored our 5th most popular Gram of the year in the process.

4 – Rene Rinnekangas

They say that Instagrams are forgotten as soon as you’ve scrolled past ’em, but Rene’s God Mode butter is seared into our memory banks.

3 – Kalle Järvilehto

Launching himself into this roundup at the last moment (he sent us this the day before we wrapped this up) is Finnish bossman Kalle. This ultra-tweaked out Crail backflip is rad, as is Mikko Rehnberg’s filming.

2 – Bataleon/Lobster Mob Shred

A couple days spent hot lapping the hardpack and with the Bataleon and Lobster teams semi-pow was enough to pull together our second most fanned-out-on Gram of 2017.

1 – Thomas Feuerstein

The man they call Fuego fired over these shots from his GoPro season reel, and his mix of avvie escapes, liftline cuts and general POV malarkey had you tapping twice the most. Booom!
