In this video you will see something VERY RARE and that is Travis Rice falling on his snowboard. Travis is such sting rider he hardly ever crashes.
The clip in this video was filmed at an event held in Breckenridge Colorado called Paul Mitchell Progression Session that featured many top professional snowboarders from around the world.
Travis Rice is a legendary snowboarder from Jackson Hole Wyoming. Even though Travis has rock Star status, he is one of the nicest and most humble snowboarders I have had the please of meeting.
He has worked with companies in the snowboard industry like lib tech, forum (as you can see in this video). Travis Rice has been to may X-Games big air events doing his radical "double flip" tricks.
I would say Hard charging is a good way to describe Travis as is one of the most dominant Big Air riders in the world. He is the defending Big Air gold medalist (plus Slope style gold from 2002, bronze from 2008 and Best Trick Showdown silver '07) and one of the most respected and influential backcountry riders.
My favorite part about travis is that he kills it in the backcountry, but he also hold his own on any street rail or urban feature, pipe, really just a great all around rider.
Travis is infamous in action sports, he became a legend with a snowboard film called "That's It, That's All," the 2008 film he produced and starred in that swept the '09 TWS awards.
Ultimately what makes Travis such a standout is how much he obviously loves what he's doing. Even without the adulation, endorsements and the trophies, you get the feeling he'd still be out there, carving new lines and looking for epic jumps. Maybe it's his easy confidence that makes this rockstar so great.
No bar is high enough for Travis Rice. This drive makes him the rider pushing snowboarding the farthest on and off snow today.
Whether reinvigorating snow films or creating new concepts for contests, his confidence is striking. A triple-threat, equally lethal in slope style, big air competitions, or backcountry, Travis has been called by sportswriters the best all-around rider in the world. And with a personality that is as huge as his tricks, Travis has become the rider to watch.
Thanks for killing it Travis!
