Eternal’s very own Chas Guldemond was crowned TTR Slopestyle World Champion in Oslo, Norway this past weekend. The TTR World Snowboard Championships were held for the first time this year and will not be held again for three more years. “That’s the first time I’ve landed a switch back 1260..” Chas on his winning run. Chas through down a pretty heavy winning run which started with a frontside blunt 270 out to a frontside boardslide 450 out, switch backside 1260, backside 1080, tailpress to backside 180 and ended with a huge Cab 1260. Check the winning run out here.
This was a big win for Chas. Chas’ contest season got off to a slow start. He had some board issues at the X Games and was unable to make the finals. But he kept his head in the game and headed to Calgary for the 5 Star Burton Canadian Open where he turned the page for his contest season and took home the win and a big confidence boost. This is his winning run.
Chas then headed straight to Sapporo for the Toyota Big Air in the Sapporo Dome where he battled through the rounds taking home 2nd place in front of wild crowd of 35,000 screaming Japanese fans.
From Japan Chas got straight on a flight to The World Snowboarding Championships in Oslo missing a few days of practice and having to go straight into competition. Chas made it through qualifiers and semi finals and ended up winning the first ever World Snowboarding Championships!!!!
CONGRATULATIONS CHAS!! All Hale The World Champ!!!!!!!!
