Are people in general cool with you jibbing shit outside of the guy who said he’d “fuck your neck?”
We get everything from love to hate, appreciation to death threats. Quotes from randoms at street sessions: “OMG you guys are so cool can I suck your dizznicks?” “Do you know Tom Wallisch?” “Can you backflip?” “Are you guys in Field Productions?” “You suck, go home” “Chrischna? Chriiiischna? CHRISHNA!!!… ??”
Where are most of the street spots we see in the videos?
Mostly in the streets. Around corners and beyond the 5th dimension. We usually just walk around with our gear until we find something to hit.
What are the plans for this season?
Go faster then Peder Bergsland. He is the superfastest. And doing tons of firecrackers, kerrrrrrawwz.
Some of the first shots of Chris Helburg from the 2012 season. Filmed by Herman Fjøss at Tryvann, Norway.
Who is the weirdest member of HappyPro?
Knut Myrvold, he is so weird, so we never feature him. He always brings a bag of shit to the sessions, and calls the local media telling them he has knitted purses for his hats. But he makes really nice purses, and is a ton of fun(eral).
Who do you look up to, in skiing or outside of it, who makes movies?
Gaspar Noe, Quentin Terrantino, Traveling Circus, Videograss and Kasper Häggstrøm (Ducksjen).
Whats the resort/park scene like in Norway – is urban as big in Norway as in the States?
Except for Fonna in the summer, and Vierli in the winter, everything is pretty much like crap compared to the States park wise. A lot of kids are out in the streets getting shots, stacking bangers and passing high fives though.
Your favorite feature in Final Cut Pro?
Star transition, earthquake, 10,000 speed, random footage to put over other random footage and stuff. And of course the rampin’. Peeuureh.
Magnus Støre 2010/2011.
If there is any spot in the US you guys could go to and film, where would you go?
Chad’s Gap (frontflip), Pyramids Gap (switch 180 octograb), Mt. Hood and the Bone Zone (switch 360 on, sw 50-50, hangup, switch backflip off.)
Dumbest thing in skiing right now?
Urbans, shiftys, Nimbus, tailgrabs, trannys, random rap-quotes, ramped slow-mo, speedin’,
gaps, one-foots, good times, Candide Thovex, high fives, ‘Fonna, switch backflips, cutting liftlines, “hater juice”, fisheye, followcams, breakin’ bottles, USB, BroBomb, Spatziba, beers, trains past rail queues, Even Sigstad, Logan Imlach, Max Hill and stuff.
Sweetest thing in skiing right now?
Bene Mayr, Bobby brown, Olympics, fish-hats, being all over the skis in doubles, 270-switchup-switchup-switchup-switchup-pretzel-k-fed-double cork 810 off, slow motion, epic backdrops, helis, 50-50 fs 180, Russ Henshaw, Matchstick, Rich kids that acts like Rick Rou$$, the bouss. Head-between-the-knees-rideaway, sunsets, contests, dance hall, Kya Bamba, people doing crooked backflips claiming to do a flatspin, RED cameras, Ski kids that hate on snowboarders, Sammy Carlsons bird steeze (but hey, we´re all about the bird steeze, really!), Kevin Rollands changing of glove sponsor (?) and skiing in general. Hurray.
