Have you ever wanted to ride on the back of Terje Haakonsen or John Jackson as they embark on one of the biggest big mountain lines you’ve ever witnessed? Yes, we’re aware of how creepy that might be but with the abundance of point-of-view edits, that’s what it feels like to watch.
Red Bull and Travis Rice’s Supernatural event took place in British Columbia in early February of this year and it’s fair to say that it blew minds. For the event, the world’s best freeride snowboarders gathered before a playground of features on the steep slopes at Baldface Lodge.
Among the riders were none other than legend Terje Haakonsen and one of the modern day heroes of shredding, John Jackson. Magical, isn’t it? Terje, who paved the way for the future of snowboarding riding alongside John J, who is smashing the boundaries of what can be done in the sport. We can’t make this stuff up.
Competitors were given one freeride day during the event, and the majority of them grabbed whatever POV camera they had, strapping it to their helmets, and shouting, “dropping!” almost immediately. Thank the heavens for that, because now we can ride their backs through the ambitious terrain of Baldface. Check out their Contour footage below and look out for the footage in it’s entirety, airing March 31 on NBC at 10 a.m. PST.
