Blackball : An Artistic Approach to Halfpipe with Iouri Podladtchikov

Blackball : Iouri Podladtchikov

Whether sending massive, tweaked out methods, tickling the lip with a slash, or sending doubles to the moon, there's a unique beauty to riding transition. Iouri Podladtchikov has spent years perfecting his moves in the U-tube and has an arsenal of stylish tricks that range from mega difficult to fun and full of flare. Last year, Iouri spent a bit of time at his home resort in Laax, Switzerland and filmed this artful edit in and around the pipe. Without any overbearing contest pressure, Iouri let loose, slayed the pipe and had a hell of a time doing it. Fellow Swiss rider, Christian Haller joined Iouri for next-level artistic shredding in the pipe.
