Ozzy Henning Goes Pro For Rome Snowboards
Not to be confused with the lead singer of Sabbath, Ozzy Henning is out for blood! With an appetite for heavy-consequence urban spots, technical rail riding and mind-blowing grabs; Ozzy‘s riding demands attention.
Ozzy first caught our attention when an edit of him ripping Park City on our OG Hammerhead deck started making its rounds online. Pretty quickly it was apparent that something was different about this lanky long haired kid from Utah. Style and control radiated from every press, every grab and every spin.
Fast forward to the 12 Months Project, Ozzy threw down standout parts in the opening November segment, January in Quebec, April in his Utah stomping grounds, July at Mt. Hood and wrapping it all up with a hammer segment for October in Austria.
The following year, it was a no-brainer that Ozzy would be making the trip to Kazakhstan for the first video of our Find Snowboarding series. What we didn’t know is how much of a boss he would prove himself to be. Riding with a broken wrist for the majority of the trip, he continued to stack clips, shovel spots, pull bungee and help the crew. That same season, Ozzy got the nod to film with Absinthe Films and fulfill a childhood dream. ‘HeavyMental’ saw him taking his riding to bigger and gnarlier spots while bringing along his signature style. His most recent part in Absinthe’s ‘Eversince’ picks up right where he left off and we continue to have our minds blown.
Very rarely is a rider’s style entertaining, technical and most importantly, inspiring. Every time we watch Ozzy ride we find ourselves wondering if it’s possible to replicate.
The Rome SDS is beyond stoked to see what the future holds for Ozzy. All we know for sure is we’re excited to see what he does next.
