Watch what Sven Thorgren got up to at this year’s Nine Knights event at Livigno, the first time snowboarders were officially invited to the event.
We’re going to put it out there and say that Sven Thorgren is one of the best snowboarders on the planet right now. Sven has been killing it at every contest he’s entered this year, and at the Nine Knights event that just wrapped up last week, Sven was rightfully voted ‘Ruler of the Week’, on top of winning the Big Air contest on the final day.
On top of stomping his first ever frontside triple cork 1440 during the comp, Sven was trying flat cab 1620s, and also put down one of the nicest tricks (a cab 12 roastbeef shifty-shifty) that we’ve seen in a while.
Check out his edit from the week, featuring some sick re-directs, crazy lines, POV angles and much more from a week of sending it on one of the biggest snow setups ever constructed.
