I had my weekend all planned out. Sleep, eat, snowboard, sleep, hang out with friends, sleep.
That was on Friday. By Saturday afternoon I was on a flight to Oslo, Norway to shoot the TTR Snowboarding World Championships.
It pretty much went that way. I got a call to go and I couldn’t say no.
It had been about 10 years since I was last in Norway and I was definitely excited to go again. I flew over with Brand Iconic filmer Jeremy Miller. It was the snowboarding world championships and the event was impressive. Huge jumps on the slopestyle course. A halfpipe designed to catch 15-20 feet of air and a quarter pipe in the Olympic stadium that even the legend Terje Haakonsen had to hit.
Norway’s a pretty amazing place. The landscape and cities are beautiful. ALL the women are pretty and if you don’t bring a lot of cash, you’ll starve. $15 for a value meal at McDonalds. $30 for a burrito. $10-$15 for their cheapest glass of beer. The event went great and we got to check out a lot of the local flavor.
Oslo is a city highly worth visiting, I can’t wait to get the opportunity to go again.
