Monster Energy teamed up with Whistler Blackcomb to build the proper feature for Max to assist in the progression of snowboarding.
“It was a dream for me when I first started competing internationally, to push the boundaries of snowboarding. I have been visualizing this trick for a few months and when the opportunity presented itself this season thanks to Monster Energy & Whistler Blackcomb, I felt it was the right time” – Max Parrot
Notice the board Max is riding? Yeah, us too. It’s a Burton Process Snowboard and you can get it HERE.
Just because you can doesn’t necessarily mean you should. Some riders like to “keep it real” and other’s push progression. Where do you think snowboarding should go?
The winners of all of this year’s Burton Party in Your Park stops converged on Brighton Resort, UT and Seven Springs, PA to gun it out for the PIYP Finals. What followed can only be described as a modern-day jibfest. From Brighton’s creative rail features to Seven Spring’s massive street setup, the riders laid down an insane showing of rail wizardry, and in the end the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners walked away with cash in hand.

Suzuki Nine Knights is no joke. The setup is immaculate, creative and gigantic, and when you unleash some of the world’s best jumpers on it you receive a showcase seen in few other places in the world. This year Sven Thorgren took the top spot among riders like Halldór Helgason, Sage Kotsenburg, and Kevin Backström. Judging by the footage above, he earned every bit of it. By the way, we’re pretty sure Peetu Piiroinen’s hip air is among the highest of all time. Borderline insanity.

What could be better than the Yawgoons at a new spot? Not much. Peep and enjoy.
Note: The Back 3 Mute poke at 1:40 is fire.
