Style. Terje has it in spades. He’s the standard by which any and every snowboarder is measured – and a standard that most everyone fails to reach. Can’t blame them – it’s 100-percent Terje, and no one else. The guy has always done things his way. But his way has usually been with what was best for the sport in mind: from helping pave the way for the TTR by not participating in the 1998 Winter Olympics to highlighting the need for a system and a multitude of events run specifically for riders, by riders. The sport and industry owes a debt of gratitude to Terje’s contributions and sacrifices – but he doesn’t need a thank you.
In his earlier years, Terje destroyed the limitations of what was thought possible on a snowboard, going bigger, faster and stronger than everyone both in the pipe and on the mountain. Inspired by other great riders such as the late Craig Kelly, Terje educated himself on the immense possibilities and experiences one could achieve through snowboarding.
Arguably Norway’s most famous international athlete, he has an ever-growing list of wins and records ranging from the legendary Mount Baker Banked Slalom to the Burton US Open, European Halfpipe Championships to setting a world record (9.8 meters out of the quarterpipe) at the Oakley Arctic Challenge in 2007.
Competition, however, isn’t his only strength. Terje has also bagged some first descents in the mountain wilderness of Alaska. For Terje, dropping down massively steep chutes and risking it all seems to be just another day at the office and yet remains a very important aspect to his complete experience of snowboarding. His natural athleticism, determined attitude and perfect sense of his surroundings are only a handful of reasons as to why he is the best snowboarder in the world. A legend, indeed.
