In the latest episode of Absinthe Films’ popular behind the scenes series Flipside, Blair Habenicht, Bode Merrill, Jason Robinson, Mathieu Crepel, Manuel Diaz, Victor de le Rue hit up a largely unexplored zone in the most North Westerly tip of Canada.
There has to be something deeply satisfying about flying out to and snowboarding lines that no other rider has ever attempted. In this episode of Absinthe’s Flipside, a crew featuring some of the most accomplished freeriders, travel deep into the Yukon to shred a heavy face.
Watch Manuel Diaz take a pretty terrifing looking tumble before Blair Habenicht shuts the face down – and on his birthday no less. And although this type of riding is perhaps a little less universally appealing as dudes sending it off cheese-wedge booters, we can assure you that it’s every bit as gnarly.
Watch the episode above and try picturing yourself in these guys’ shoes!
