The latest dispatch from the Mushroom Crew’s summertime shred fiesta up at Folgefonna sees Fridtjof ‘Fridge’ Tischendorf link up with the usual Fonna suspects for some most-expected epic partyboarding…
Ok, ok. Don’t ask us why we’re bringing you the new Fridays at Fonna episode even later than usual – by the time the cats drop their freshest edit it tends to be after we’ve peaced out for the weekend, so we tend to get to it on Monday. This time, though, it took us even longer than our regularly slackened timekeeping, for which we can only blame chemtrails, Donald Trump, or a combination of the two.
And, boy, are we stoked we didn’t sleep on episode 5! This time round ya boy Fridge – who lest you forget scooped up the second placed Rookie title in our European Rider of the Year awards thanks to an breakout year of backpacked boarding in 2017 – joins the party and has some double lines with a dude that clearly shares the same stylist.
As is their M.O., this edit features an array of technical jibbing, increasingly creative trannyfinders, small kicker shredding and the occasional bit of bigger airtime. These aren’t about gloryboarding in the golden hour – though Fonna has certainly seen its fair share of that in recent weeks – rather they’re focussed on what gets done in the regular hand dug setup. As we’re said before, you don’t need epic features to have an epic time, and possibly the sickest thing to come out from this latest drop is Kristoffer Lerånd’s trannie back 3 to shifty backflip 180 – for the sake of typing it would be sick if he could just call it a Whoopdeedoo – at 2:49. Boooom!
Riders: Kenneth Kelso Nygård, Kristoffer Lerånd, Andrea Straume, Nils Arvidsson, Samuel Ærø, Fridtjof Sæther Tischendorf, Aleksander Klerud, Emil Fossheim
