Folgefonna, Norway. 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 local 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.
Nike 6.0 have spent the last year gathering a team of all the talents, a crew of young and ludicrously snowboarders from all over the world.
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.
And after seeing the footage, it is safe to say that the future of snowboarding is in safe hands. The filming’s incredible, and the riding really is, as promised, insane computer game shit. This was the D-Pad session. Check it out.
