The Air & Style Innsbruck kicked off yesterday with this practice session. We’d say it looks pretty mellow (there’s no doubles being thrown down yet) but there’s nothing really mellow about hurling yourself off a massive scaffolding kicker in the middle of a ski-jump stadium… as the POV camera run shows!
Tristan first stepped on a snowboard at the age of 12, and (despite being a bit rubbish) has made a point of riding as often as possible since. He joined Whitelines in 2009, and writes, shoots, films and edits for both the magazine and the website. Having headed up the team in charge of the Whitelines Buyers' Guide for the past four seasons knows more about the geeky side of snowboard kit than anyone should ever have to know.
