Terje Haakonsen and Ben Ferguson: Art of Carve

From Burton Snowboards via YouTube:

Cruising the groomers is one of the first things a snowboarder does, but also one of the hardest to really master. Lots of people can ride fast, but it’s not until you see a guy like Terje Haakonsen effortlessly blast a huge method off of a nonexistent bump, or Ben Ferguson lay down an armpit dragging carve that you realize just what’s possible on a regular old groomer. Riding fast, getting creative, and looking good doing it are a few of the things that can really show how good a pro snowboarder is.

In the world of superpipes, triple corks, and flights of art, it’s easy to forget what snowboarding is really about: making the most out of natural terrain and having fun. Whether locking into a tripod, dragging your chin on a carve, or slashing your way into the whiteroom, there is a lot of fun that can be had riding the groomers. Watch as two guys on each end of the spectrum show how much fun you can have just ripping around the mountain. After seeing Terje’s method 55 seconds in, or Ben’s backside 360 tripod at 1:17, you will be left open-mouthed and shaking your head with a few more tricks added to your checklist.
