【動画】新旧両極端ライダー同士のインタビュー

一方は、まだ世の中でスノーボードというものがまったく知られていない時代からスノーボードを始め、プロとして最初の世界チャンピオンになったテリー・キッドウェル。
もう一方は、スキー場がほとんどないと言っていいイギリス出身で、人工スキー場でスノーボードを始め、その後、人工芝パークでトリックを習得したジェイミー・ニコルス。
スノーボードのプロという世界では、まったく両極端とも言える新旧のライダー同士が、インタビューを行うというおもしろい企画だ。

昔のライダーにはまったく考えられないかもしれないけど、今では雪山出身者でなくても、人工パークで技術を培ってグローバルなライダーになる例もある。プロ・ライダーとしてフリーラン技術を高めることは大切だけど、一方で効率良く練習できる人工パーク施設でトリックをマスターし、プロとしての階段を早く駆け上がるということもライダーには必要。そんなことを考えさせられるインタビュー内容だね。

Everyone knows Terry Kidwell is an icon. His riding and progression of snowboarding has left a mark that you see in the most stylish riding today. Terry also has years of experience as a pro snowboarder. At this stage of his life, Terry is interested in talking and riding with people who he feels have a good story or they have made an impact in the sport. Inside The Rider’s Mind with Terry Kidwell is the result of his focus and in his very first show, Terry profiles British rider Jamie Nicholls, who began snowboarding at a young age and didn’t actually ride on real snow until he was already accomplished and sponsored. This is part one of a two part interview. Once again, I must apologize for the poor audio, BK Sports Productions is evolving and mistakes will continue until we learn…….

In Part 2 of Terry Kidwell’s interview with Jamie Nicholls, Terry and Jamie talk about subjects such as powder, web edits and going with the flow. Jamie Nicholls may be one of the very few European riders who is beginning to make a name for himself in North America, without actually living there. As you will see in part 2, Jamie is charismatic and definitely doesn’t take himself or anything else too seriously.
