The Hi Standard Double Big Air brings snowboarding “back to the basics”. Basics meaning the double big air jump contest limits riders to spinning 720’s or less. Anything over a 720 and the run is disqualified. Big Air done the Vans way is strictly based on style and creativity.
Over the weekend Vans and Pro Tec hosted the “High Standard Double Big Air”. Competitors threw down in less than ideal weather conditions over 2 big jumps at the Rail Yard in Winter Park, Co. Riders sessioned the jumps in a jam format where judges Andreas Wiig, Nick Poohachoff, and Yale Cousino scored them strictly on overall style.
In this new age of double and triple corks it’s refreshing to see a contest that’s not about how many time’s you can huck yourself around. At the High Standard Double Big Air, Style is everything.
