The Sprocking Cat is still sprocking! What is there to be said about him that you don't already know? Giving Terje a snowboard at the ripe young age of 13 was like passing a basket ball to Michael Jordan for the first time.. The rest is history.. With more titles, movie parts, trophies and "Perfect lines" under his belt than a retired porn star, Terje keeps spending his days doing what he's always done, circumnavigating the globe in search of the best snow, waves and coconuts. Then there's the running of his own event, The Arctic Challenge, being a gardening dad or a distinctly skilled soccer player.. His highest air record from 2007 still stands proud to this day and if you haven't seen Terje's seminal signature movie "Subjekt Haakonsen" then go do your homework. Next year you can see him in Veeco's upcoming film "True To This".

What was your first snowboard movie that got you hooked? Snow shredders! Sims freestyle flick

Attunga world premier, P1 Munich, Sunday the 28th of January
Last Sunday on the first night of ISPO, Attunga was shown to the general public for the first time. We teamed up with longtime friends, media partner, and snowboard magazine extraordinary - Pleasure, because when it comes to throwing parties in Munich, nobody does it better. By the times doors opened at the P1 club, the line to get in was over a hundred meters long. Come 11 o’clock, Terje Haakonsen introduced the movie to the overenthusiastic spastic snowboard crowd. At 12:30, the boy wonder, aka the not so petit prince with his magic fingers and slightly less magic amplifier came on stage and introduced his band LEOPARD Ale. Within seconds, yours truly was violently pushed into the back corners of the venue by a lynch mob of, hmmm… let’s just call them female fans (we do live in #metoo times after all). It was close to Beatles mania all over again. After LEOPARD Ale’s historical gig, Nasty Mondays took over, and it was around this time our beloved Seth Huot (Attunga movie director) was kicked out for letting off too much steam. Not an easy task to accomplish, kudos Seth. The rest is as they say, staying on tour. We’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Thank you to everyone that came out, Chris Heubl and Pleasure Magazine, Martin Herrmann for photos, and Jeff and Seth for coming all the way from the US.

Attunga "A Higher Place"
ATTUNGA is the unfiltered saga of three Norwegian snowboarders: Terje Haakonsen, Torgeir Bergrem and Marcus Kleveland, pulling back the curtain and examining their purpose, potential, pitfalls and paychecks. Filmmaker and snowboarder Seth Huot exquisitely documents an intimate portrait of legendary purist Terje (44), holistic-minded Torgeir (26) and carefree wunderkind Marcus (18), who together realize a common higher place.

Congrats to Terje Haakonsen and Joelle Juchli for taking top honors at the 2016 Laax Sudden Rush Banked Slalom
This past weekend the 2nd annual Laax Banked Slaom went down in Laax.. And what a blast it was.. 60cm of powder is great for cruising.. But, the course had to be dug out and reshaped two days in a row, and only those with lightning fast reflexes and x-ray vision managed to make it past 39 berms, all the way to the finish line. Many fell and had their egos bruised.. But that didn’t last long, as some amazing powder runs more than made up for previous falls during the race. In the end, the man, the myth and the mystery that is Terje Haakonsen again clocked the fastest time.. Congrats to him. And just as big congrats to Joelle Juchli for clocking the fastest womens time, making it a double Volcom victory.. Massive thanks to the Snowpark Laax shapers, the resort of Laax and the organisers for an amazing weekend Terje 1st place Pre-race anticipation Keller and the 2nd longest board of the event JJ 1st place

There’s no time like Spring time
Could April and May be the best months for park riding? The warming rays of the sun collaborate to make the snow softer and more forgiving whilst simultaneously unraveling the beauty of cleavages of all shapes & sizes faster than Spring Lilies popping through the remnants of valley snow. Now is the time to push yourself, to add that last 180 rotation that you’ve been planning on all winter. Now is the time to go fast and hit that park kicker you thought was out of your league. Now is the time to actually ask the the girl at the bakery that’s secretly been smiling at you and undoing her top button all winter out for a drink. Now is the time to venture to the Volcom/Nitro Snow park at Kitzsteinhorn (http://www.kitzsteinhorn.at/en/snowpark) or the park in Laax-Switzerland (http://www.laax.com/en/skiing-area/snowpark/), then rounding it off with sunny smiles and cold beers, shared with friends old and new. And if you to need freshen up your wardrobe with spring-appropriate attire, we have just what you need right HERE. If still in doubt, this fine spring edit by Pirmin featuring Volcom riders Terje, Arthur, Olivier Marcus Kleveland and others will seal the deal.

Back to back Banked Slalom victories for Terje Haakonsen
Wanna know how to properly ride banks? Then check this follow cam angle of Terje chasing local hero Eric Themel. The grand old man did it again, he came, barely managed to sneak in a training run, then relegated several pros half his age far away from the top podium spot. His first run was fast enough to secure the victory, leaving Christian Haller (CH) in 2nd place and Stefan Maurer (CH) in 3rd… Skills, speed, stamina and suspension (not necessarily in that order) is what it takes kids. Also congrats to Volcom rider Sarka Pancochova (CZ) and Cheryl Maas for taking 1st and 2nd in the Women’s division, respectively A big thanks to the organizers of Montafonbanked.com for yet another amazing event. If you’ve never been to a banked slalom yet, come to this one first.. They set the Benchmark for Europe Stay tuned for video dropping soon. 2nd Place - Stefan Maurer Flat base as explained by Terje is what counts Terje during 2nd Run Elias on start.
