Rahlves on his “Biggest Jump Ever”

 

WEND rider, Daron Rahlves, posed for our official WEND Rahlves poster. He reflects on the action shot we used, claiming it to be the biggest jump he has ever landed:

“Filming w/ Teton Gravity Research in AK we found this nice morning test slope. I saw the potential for a perfect DH air into the big bowl with a steep landing. I hiked up above the take off and sent it. My ATOMIC SKIING Atlas 192’s felt quick with my signature Wend Waxworks rub on. Hard to measure out this air, but it was the biggest I’ve ever gone and I’d say close to 300′. I hit it twice and went about 15′ further the second time. Stoked to have this shot for my Wend poster since the wax helped take it that far. After that we named the run “gal-unde”.”
