Max Parrot Takes Silver in Snowboard Big Air at X Games Norway 2017

Mar 122017

Monster Energy congratulates Max Parrot for taking silver in Men’s Snowboard Big Air at X Games Norway. In the final major contest of the season, Parrot once again showed his propensity for the absurd with a barrage of progressive tricks that left the crowd, judges and anyone watching at home inspired and in awe.

Dressed in his trademark black, Parrot wasted no time setting the tone for the night with his first jump where he nailed a cab triple cork 1620. As incredible as that sounds he was just getting started. With adrenaline flowing, on his next attempt he then switched directions and spun a frontside triple cork 1440. Riding away without a hand drag, bobble or sketch of any kind the Norwegian crowd went wild. Now sitting atop the pack, Parrot, instead of playing it safe, showed why he is such a threat in big air competitions.

With so many tricks to choose from it seemed fitting that he opted to end his season the way we have come to expect -- by blowing everyone's mind.

"The cab 1800 I didn't land all day at practice," said Parrot. "I was super happy to put that one down clean."

However, in the highly subjective world of judging snowboarding the judges saw it different and in the end Parrot missed the Gold by a single point.

 

"You know, this is by far my best contest season I have ever had, and I'm just really happy to go home with a medal," said Parrot.
