A - ALASKA (R: Nicolas Müller, P: Oli Gagnon)

Alaska contains some of the biggest and gnarliest mountains on the planet. Every season, the world's best snowboarders make the journey up to AK to log shots for their movie projects and while the powder and terrain may be next level, it's certainly not a

C - CREATIVITY (R: Elias Veijola, P: Teemu Heljo)

We snowboarders are an inherently creative bunch. From our trick selection, to the way we interpret spots on the hill or in the streets to the way we document snowboarding - like this sick reflective shot of Elias Veijola by Teemu Heljo.

D - DOUBLE CORK (R: Victor Daviet, P: Remi Petit)

The double cork was first landed by JP Walker in 2001's 'Shakedown' before being consolidated as a legitimate trick by the likes of David Benedek. These days, doubles are a dime a dozen and you won't see a slopestyle or halfpipe comp that don't feature th

F - FRONTSIDE BOARDSLIDE (R: Eiki Helgason, P: Sami Tuoriniemi)

The frontside boardslide is one of the most instantly recognisable and staple jib tricks in the game. They're pretty straightforward to learn and feel sick when you get them on lock. A rail trick that will never go out of fashion.

I - INDY (R: Bode Merrill, P: Andy Wright)

The indy - grabbing the toeside edge with the back hand - is probably the grab that most snowboarders try and learn first. They feel great with a whole bunch of tricks, although don't get caught calling a frontside one a 'frontside indy' or the trick nazi

J - JIBBING (R: Brandon Cocard, P: Matt Georges)

Jibbing - technically defined as sliding over a non-snow surface on a snowboard - first emerged in the early 90's with riders like Nick Perata on picnic tables and the like, before being taken to a new level by guys like JP Walker and Jeremy Jones. Today,

L - LIPSLIDE (R: SAMI LUHTANEN, P: SAMULI RONKANEN)

Lipslides rule. They can be done frontside or backside (like Sami Luhtanen's here) and involve bringing your back foot up and over the rail before touching down with the rail square between your feet.

M - METHOD (R: KALLE OHLSON, P: LUCAS NILSSON)

The method - the most iconic and instantly recognisable trick in snowboarding. Good ones don't come all that easy and they have been an integral part in building the careers of some of the biggest names in snowboarding.

Terje Haakonsen, or 'The godfather of snowboarding' as he's also known, is perhaps the most influential snowboarder to have walked the earth. From his staunch views on FIS and the Olympics to his many, many achievements on his board, we all owe a lot to t

V - VIDEO (R: LNP, P: OLI GAGNON)

From playing VHS tapes until they play no more, to the never-ending stream of content that drops online today in 2014, video has always played a pretty huge part in snowboarding. If there's no video proof it didn't happen right?

W - WALLRIDE (R: DYLAN THOMPSON, P: E-STONE)

Urban snowboarding has been getting pretty insane over the last few years, and every building, handrail or dumpster in the streets represents a potential snowboard spot. Wallrides are a pretty big part of it all and Dylan Thompson likes them a bunch.
