While we were out at Spring Break in Kaunertal, we nabbed British rail crusher Will Smith for a quick top to bottom run through the park. We think it turned out good, considering Will did this first go and was riding a 143 girls powder board…
We were pretty surprised when Will told us that he’d been hitting rails on a tiny powder board built for the fairer sex. Turns out that either short girls pow boards are really good for jibbing or Will is pretty handy when it comes to sliding on metal. Or a combination of the two.
Either way, Will put down some bangers on his very first run including back blunt 270, back lips and bolts backside and frontside 3s off.
About our Top To Bottom series: We think that a lot can be said about a person’s snowboarding if you give them the freedom to interpret the mountain in their own way. This season we’ll be following a bunch of riders for one run of their choice. Be it a rail line, kicker line, or just a side hit run, we think that once in a while it’s important to strip back all of the extra stuff that you see in edits these days and present snowboarding as you or I would see it on the mountain. We’ve opted to ditch music and fancy editing and present one continuous run of raw, honest snowboarding. We hope you dig ‘em.
