Hailing from the mountainless and remote north Atlantic island of Iceland, Halldór Helgason is kid who has never let anything stand in the way of his deep-down desire to ride his board on everything. Guided by his older brother and fellow pro shredder Eiki, Halldór spent his teens immersed in snowboard life: nonstop riding, filming homemade videos, and even attending the elite NTG snowboard academy in Sweden. His part in the underground shred film They Came From… was Halldór’s introduction to the global shred community, a segment that immediately made him one to watch. At 19, he became the first Icelander to win an X-Games medal when he took the gold in Big Air at the 2010 games. Along with his brother Eiki and a crew of friends from his native homeland, Halldor continues making bold moves both on an off the snow by launching projects like Lobster Snowboards, Hoppipolla hats, and the belt brand 7/9/13. On top of that he and the boys made have made some of the most talked about shred films, entitled Sexual Snowboarding. By mixing next-level urban riding and progressive jumping footage with hearty doses of wiseass ridiculousness, Halldór keeps pushing his version of raw shredding out to the masses. And not surprisingly, they’re eating it up.
