    During quarantine I have been going through my old snowboard VHS collection to archive them on YouTube.
    I came across a segment filmed at Thredbo featuring a young Brian Iguchi & Terje Haakonsen in the Coca Cola Classic.
    If you are interested in watching it go to 05:50 in the below link.

    Does anyone remember this?

    Yep I was there, was epic!

    Sketchy gap jump, some crazy Euro trying one footers over it and getting so smashed.Seeing Terje and Guch was mind blowing.

    Remember going up Gunbarrel after the comp had finished and we saw them riding back down Dream Run below us. Pretty impressive as they basically straight lined the whole thing even though it was mostly grass and ice.

    I'm jealous of seeing Terje & Brian at Thredbo!
    The massive 1 footed jump at 06:33 is one of the most impressive things I've seen on a board.
    Seeing the boarder cross course makes me appreciate how far park building has become over the years as well.

    Used to have roots pushing out.
    Half was in shade. Half was baked by sun.
    Best run I ever saw there was by Babs.

    Yeah it was 93.

    That video only shows the jump when Sebu landed that one footer, he had about 4 hits when he got so bent out of shape on the landing it was painful to watch. One run in his foot slipped off before the kicker and rag dolled up to it.

    Timmy V was having a solid hit at it too.

    Ah the mid 90s!
    I would have thought this was so amazingly awesome at the time.
    The fashion, the music.

    Even the song.
