Snow Shop: Standing Sideways with Burton

If you haven’t geared up for snowboarding season yet, head over to our Snow Shop—and start jotting down favorites for your holiday wish list.

A couple weeks ago, we took a look at original extreme skier Scot Schmidt. Today, let’s check out two of Burton’s top boarders: living legend Terje Haakonsen (known for his fluid style in the most unforgiving terrain) and young gun Shaun White (whose historic perfect-100 score from the 2012 X Games is documented below).

A dominant boarder of the early ’90s as well as today, Terje Haakonsen, accompanied by up-and-comer John Jackson, waxes philosophic on the art of slicing up a mountain.

Shaun White five-peats and scores the first-ever 100.00 in SuperPipe at the 2012 Winter X Games.
