Guest Bio- 

Terje Haakonsen is a Norwegian professional snowboarder, and arguably the greatest legend in snowboarding. He is considered one of the most influential snowboarders in the history of the sport, and the rider who most others look up to.

Terje is the master of amplitude and style in the halfpipe and quarterpipes, and he is also one of the fastest riders in the world. Terje’s flowing style and his proficiency on all types of terrain are what have characterised his snowboarding and have had the greatest impact on the sport. While the foundations of his career were laid in halfpipe competitions, he also established himself as a dominant athlete through films and international snowboard productions. Here he would show his skills freeriding in powder, big mountains and in “big air” competitions — the forerunners to today’s slopestyle competitions.
