The venue, Folgefonna, Norway. The aim, to create a session that ends the season on a high and to get some of the great snowboarding minds together to push creativity and progression in the 20 hours of sunlight that Norwegian summers have to offer. With a set up created by legendary shaper Lars Eriksen, everything was in place to pretend we were back on those old computers experimenting with what was and wasn’t possible. Bring on the ‘The Nike 6.0 D-Pad Session’.
The dozen riders selected for the task was a mix of established names who gave their take on modern snowboarding and next generation riders who did their part to kick snowboarding into the future: Gjermund Bråten, Ethan Morgan, Gerome Mathieu, Ståle Sandbech, Jamie Nicholls, Terje Håkonsen, Jake Blauvelt, Matt Ladley, Mason Aguirre, Eero Ettala, Kevin Bäckström and Erik Botner.
