How did you get this shot? Obviously you shot the photo yourself?!?
I was at Strynefjellet glacier in Norway with the National team in the beginning of June. We were supposed to hit a jump, but the weather wasn't that good. We didn't really get to hit the jump that much, so Frode Sandbech and myself decided to build a road gap jump instead. The road is at the bottom of the glacier so it was less windy and better weather down there. The first day we tried to get the shot, the jump was too small and it was really hard to keep the camera steady. The next day we built the jump bigger and better, and it finally worked out. I had the camera in my hand that was connected to a transmitter in my pocket. That way Frode could take the shot with a remote control.
What kind of camera did you use?
Where was the shot taken?
It's at Strynefjellet glacier in Norway. It's actually the same road gap from Jamie Lynn's Transworld cover in the mid 1990s (not too sure about the year). Not sure where they built the road gap back then, but it's probably within half a mile from where we built ours.
Have you ever taken a photo like that before?
I took a photo like that two years ago with Frode, but I don't think it worked out that well back then. As far as I know the photo never got ran.
How does it feel that it would up on a cover?
It feels awesome! It's my second Transworld cover, and it's been a while since the last one.
