A road movie through Norway & the mind of Terje Haakonsen
From early contest shakeups to progressing the sport in countless magazines and videos, Terje’s influence on snowboarding’s trajectory is truly monumental. Terje’s Olympic boycott and creation of the Arctic Challenge made him a pioneering proponent of rider-run contests. As a competitor he has stacked accolades including all-time high quarterpipe airs and seven Mt Baker Legendary Banked Slalom wins.
Desillusion Magazine’s editor in chief Sebastien Zanella followed Terje Haakonsen on a road trip around Norway to gain a true insight into his life away from the spotlight.

It has come to my attention that we all felt a similar contempt under the seasonal vacation migration of cityslickers unto our respective holylands. Our home at Boreal was not spared. In fact, it was a grade A holiday sh*t show. Which is actually pretty tight, and that’s why Dan took the ol’ cam out and we joined the crowds on hill to make our sixth installment of Strangers Welcome.

Parker Duke comes flying back on to the snowboard scene like a cataclysmic flash flood or a devastating hurricane; you knew it was just a matter of time, but still you built your house back in the same spot?!?! Well, better call FEMA because this savage beast is a saber tooth tiger that killed the dinosaurs, survived the ice age and is now laying waste to streets, kickers, mountains and Verticoli hair brushes everywhere!
The planets have aligned, the crops yielded their bounty, the charts were correct and our snowboarding predictions have come to pass! This is the Think Thank Almanac 2014; spins, slides, styles, monsoons, slashes, nourishment, motels, Delores, barley refreshment, galaxies, friendship, drought and the body’s humors all played out in the pantheon of snowboarding.

This chap’s first go-round with his drone could have ended much worse. Watch the short clip and see how close the drone was to disaster.

Apparently this moose really likes Steamboats Springs‘ halfpipe. Unfortunately the moose didn’t purchase a lift ticket and was escorted off the premises by ski patrol.
