Do you ski? Here is a funny story 👇🏻
After posting the ski clip of Storm on FB a couple of days ago, somebody commented with a video saying “not long till he does Air Jordan in Whistler like his dad”.
Somebody in the line to the lift filmed a drop of me from Whistler early 2000. I remember the day well. It was one of the first days we were in Canada and we were like kids in a candy store.
I was with my homie @jorgenvalde and @torgrimvole. We ended up on top of this double drop. The dialog was pretty much like this:
Jørgen: holy shit, there is a double drop here. André: looks huge! Torgrim: Can you see the landing Jørgen: yeah sort of.
Jørgen: Fuck it, should we hit it? André & Torgrim: yeah lets do it. All three trying to act cool being nervous at the same time.
Jørgen hit it first and ate sh$%. It took forever before he landed from the second cliff.
André og Torgrim: holy shit. It’s huuuuge. Are you ok?? Jørgen: I’m fine. André: well, he landed pretty much head first. How much worse can it be. Let’s do it. And we both hit it. And that was that. Didn’t think more of it, till I googled Air Jordan Whistler today. Which is a world know, 4,5m (15ft) step down to a 6 m. (20ft) patch into a 18 m (60ft) drop according to alltracks academy.
Good old days when you had a body to huck stuff like this. Haha. Good times with rad friends, living as ski bums in a car, going big in every way. Thanks for the clip @matskris ...
