Kevin Rolland, one of the world's most accomplished skiers in the super pipe, taking the King of Style title in Stockholm. Here in his final jump, a 360 with Japan grab. 
Normally a jump you'd do for warming up, Kevin at this point knew that he had earned the title if he didn't crash, hence the safe option.

When Mike Wilson says that he will send it, then you can be f@ ¢¶∑‰§ sure that he will send it.  The inventor of the first ever double in freeskiing, the Wilson Flip, is obsessed with maths and science = more control and less danger = safer rope swings, base jumps and whatnot. He's also one of the nicest persons you can hang out with on a mountain.

Timy Dutton (1987-2014). We met to film in A-Basin. Within 10 minutes of shaking hands we were planning fun stuff in Norway and elsewhere. He became the North American Freeskiing Champion in 2009 after strolling in as a rookie and had a part in the MSP movie ”The Way I See It”.

We lost Timy the 29th of April 2014, after a skydive collision in mid-air over Acampo, CA. Blue skies, buddy. May you shred in peace.

Simon Dumont looking like he was losing it during this jump at JOSS 2010. But as you know, this is Simon. And Simon will not lose it. The Simon we know simply won't.

Through a row of pretty spectacular performances (switch triple front flip, anyone?) Jesper Tjäder is a very respected name today. By many he's considered to be ”the Mike Wilson of the new freeskiing generation”. And, yes... he's the also reigning world champion. Above an ancient shot of him in 08 airspace. Location: Stockholm, King of Style

Sean Jordan. After seeing his segment in ”Mutiny” I was pretty stoked to be working with him in Colorado. One of the skiers who threw in the most laps on our feature. One who charged the castle just a little harder.

Late March 2004. Red Bull Big Air in Åre, Sweden. The youngest competitor of the day, 16 y o, shocks everybody by sending it harder and higher over the 12 meter high box than anybody else. He has since then been one of my favorite skiers of all time, widely recognized as one of the very best big air skiers ever. His name? That would be Jacob Wester, then.

Jacob Wester, just a little older than in the previous pic. Despite coming across as one of the smartest persons on the freeskiing scene, Jacob these days also appears to be one of the happiest, successfully making the migration from competing to filming. Check out his series ”Unfiltered Skiing” from last year...

Sammy Carlson of Hood River, OR, winner of five Winter X Games medals goes to work during the 2009 King of Style competition in Stockholm. The first time when Sammy really made an impact on me was when he won JOSS  with an edit that featured sequences shot from a parapent. Sammy was also the first to execute a switch triple rodeo 1260.
