We’ve all seen some mini-shreds, but this is ridiculous. At the recent Big Bang Snowboard Show at Castleford, some of the world’s top riders took time out to attend Mint Snowboard School’s ‘Mountain Invitational’. With trusty water-bottle in hand, UK pro Aimee Fuller gives us the play-by-play commentary, before getting some laps in herself. She’s got balls to throw down with the likes of Jake Olson-Elm and Halldor & Eiki Helgason!
You’ve got to love the description on the YouTube video:
“The season is already up and running thanks to a new freestyle snowboard contest on UK soil. Run by Mint Snowboard School and in association with TSA, Gonzilla and Quiksilver, the Mint Mountain Invitational brought together some of the worlds top snowboarders to compete on a mountain like nothing they had ridden before. The first leg of the comp kicked off at the TSA Big Bang in Castleford with Signal’s Jake Olsen-Elm, Lobster founders Halldor Helgason, Eiki Helgason and Brit shred star Aimee Fuller, all battling for glory on Mint Mountain. Competition was tight with technical tricks, spins, grabs and the odd bail.”
