The new Fridays at Fonna – once again posted on a Monday due to us having shut the machine down when it actually dropped last Friday arvo – sees more goodtime ripping around up on the Folgefonna snowpark.
This time around the regular cast of characters are added to by Brage Richenberg and a recently-back-on-his-board Sven Thorgren – stoked to see this Swedish kid return from that injury that kept him out of the Olympics. Yeah Sven!
When it comes to the riding, there’s the usual mix of quality ripping and more fun-type shredding. We hope the boys remembered their sunscreen when they take to the smaller hits for some semi-shirtless minishred super spinning, Len Jørgensen has a few more tasty trannyfinders, Sven gets busy snowskating a mini hip, and there’s a rebate on the previous episode’s Mortal Kombat skit between ‘Cone Head Kelso’ and ‘Killer Klerud’.
There’s also a sweet bit of Method-bonking a Fonna sign held aloft by Len, a near-death moment when a careless skier decides to linger on the knuckle, and a ton of backflips interspersed between the more regular kicker- and rail tricks, once again making Folgefonna look like the raddest place a snowboarder could ever spend a summer.
Looking forward to the next drop from these boys later this week, and with any luck we’ll actually be able to bring it to you it immediately rather than letting it sleep for a weekend and be all Johnny-Come-Lately on a Monday morning…
