Big 12’s: Sebastien Toutant Victorious at TTR 6 Star O’Neill Evolution Slopestyle, Oakley Teammates Throw Down
The Slopestyle finals at the O’Neill Evolution in Davos was a showdown of 12’s. But it was Oakley’s Seb Toutant’s cab double cork 12 melon that owned the competition and landed him the Slope title at the spirited event – which was dominated by the youngsters throwing down and raising the bar for the future of the sport. One of those other youngsters: Oakley teammate and fellow Canadian Mark McMorris, whose cab double cork 12 (super steezy) nose and bs 540 bonk on the pole rail after a big bail in his first final run, had him grab the runner-up spot.

The Trick That Shook the World: Shaun White’s Double McTwist 12 Most Viewed Video on TWS Site in 2010
Is any other Transworld Snowboarding video even close? Nope. Shaun White’s Double McTwist 1260 video – which was captured at a Grand Prix practice session on Jan. 22, 2010 – shook the Snowboarding World. Oakley’s Global Snowboarding icon threw it down right before the Winter Olympics, where he bagged the Pipe Gold with that very trick, of course (which ripped a hole in the O-zone layer itself…with the insane video views from everywhere). It’s no surprise that the original video took the very top honors for Transworld Snowboarding’s Top Ten Most Viewed Videos Of 2010. No. 1 with no question.
