Taku Hiraoka’s 2015 Burton US Open Winning Halfpipe Run

Amplitude counts for a full 25 percent of a rider’s score at the Burton US Open and Japan’s Taku Hiraoka had plenty of it in the pipe today, mixed with technical tricks like a frontside 1260 tail grab. With many other riders having trouble landing a full run, Tuka continued the Japanese domination at the US Open, holding on to the top spot after his second run score.
