Iouri Podladtchikov in Oslo – Halfpipe riding like you’ve never seen

Halfpipe riders like Olympic gold medalist Iouri Podladtchikov can take a lot of flak for being flip jocks without creativity and style but that belief is entirely untrue—a huge misconception in snowboarding. Riding a 22-foot wall of ice is tremendously difficult and it takes a special individual to do it with style and confidence. I-Pod is one of those individuals. This night session at the pipe in Oslo, Norway demonstrates a master at work, whose prowess is nothing short of extraordinary.
