Behind the Scenes on Eiki Helgason’s Island Born Hippie Jump

Eiki Helgason doesn’t think like most other snowboarders. The Icelandic wizard sees spots and tricks that few others would – case in point: his ‘Eikiplant’ on the famed Riks train tunnel.

While filming for his Ísland Born project, he spotted this bit o’ architecture and decided it was ripe for a bit of hippy jump 50-50 bombdropping and got to work.

Eiki’s a capital kinda guy, and says: “Here are All The Tries I Did to Land The Hippie Jump 5050 For My Ísland Born Full Part.”

You can see how it fit in with the rest of his hammers in his full part from Island Born right here…
