VIDEO: Rail Ridiculousness With Jesper Tjäder

Young Swede flips the rail game on its head

If the name Jesper Tjäder doesn’t ring any bells, let this video be your gong show. Putting that Red Bull budget to good use, the 21-year-old freeski phenom creates a terrain park that stretches the realm of possibility and then just starts throwing hammers (Mom, this is a metaphor, skiers are not actually hucking hardware). We’re talking double corks off handrails and switch front flip switch-ups on trap boxes. Sound like I’m speaking in code again? Well, check out this video and it will be easy to understand what I’m getting at: In a freestyle world that progresses by the second, Tjäder is moving at the speed of light.
