The World Rookie Finals have previously crowned a whole list of names that later went on to dominate the highest levels of snowboarding. So it would be worth remembering the names Jonas Bösinger and Katerina Vojackova, they're going to start popping up all over the shop. Last week they took top honours in their age categories at the World Rookie Finals in Ischgl, where standards were ludicrously high. Just check the highlights reel - these kids are laying down runs that would have challenged at the X Games not all so long ago. And they're not just hurling through the course, there's style in there too. They're 15 for flip sake. If rookies need doubles to get on the podium, it's safe to say the future's bright for slopestyle competition. Watch out for these guys at our Onboard Send Off Session very shortly.
