Still Funny: Corbet’s Couloir Fail With Real Time Call Out

November 13th, 2013 by

This guy sends it off the headwall of Corbet’s, to an epic fail. Despite the dissuasion of the cameraman, this kid sends it anyway. Props to the camera man for actually calling him out before he lands, following up with an insult before he stops rolling. “How’s your back!?”

Erik had this to say about his season:

“I broke my arm early on in the season but I was back skiing by January and was able to secure a few National podiums and on several occasions I was holding the highest individual score of the competition. Had a great time shredding with all the guys on the tour this year and am way stoked to ride with all of them again this season! Big ups to Oakley, Pret Helmets, Full Tilt Boots, and Soul Poles for the support, and of course thanks to my parents and coaches!”

The Comma Couloir was a little scratchy at the very top, and explosively deep in the middle on through the apron.
