Kilian Martin is like the Michael Jackson of skateboarding, and I mean that in the best possible way. In this video where he skates an abandoned water park in the desert, he’s dancing on his board creating new moves like it’s 1982 and it's the Thriller music video. I don’t know, maybe he’s more like Antonio Banderas in the movie Desperado — a mariachi of skateboarding — again, I mean that in the best possible way. Set to the music of Patrick Watson, "Adventures In Your Own Backyard," it’s just a beautiful video you can watch again and again. A pretty epic solo performance. Can you believe it's sponsored by Mercedes-Benz?
Just when you thought Karl Fostvedt couldn't get any crazier, he decided to hit Corbet's SWITCH. Yeah, and he stomped it. But was it enough to maintain his reign as king of Corbet's?

Travis Rice’s run at Kings and Queens of Corbet’s 2019 might have been some of the finest snowboarding we’ve ever seen, but the real hero was no doubt Trevor Kennison, who chucked it off the lip aboard his sit-ski. Kennison suffered a life-changing snowboarding injury in 2014 when he crashed on a jump in the backcountry of Vail Pass, Colorado, landing on his back. He has worked with the High Fives Foundation ever since, and competed in the ski race events with dreams of entering the 2022
If first you don’t succeed at a double backflip into Corbet’s, try, try again. Despite exploding from his first attempt, Tristan “Teton” Brown went for it again. The effort and commitment were there, unfortunately, the landing was not. Haunted from being unable to stomp either attempt at the trick last year, the double backie remains to be Brown's greatest arch-nemesis.
