The road to the Burton US Open 2017 with Scotty James

For Scotty James, the view from the top is pretty damn fine. Heading into the Burton US Open as the world’s No.1 ranked halfpipe rider, it’s been a career high winter for the on-fire Aussie.

So what does he credit his golden run to? A healthy balance of travel, freeriding, practice and standard shenanigans that’s put him in a headspace to dominate in the pipe.

It helps to have a solid right-hand man by your side, and for James that’s his brother and filmer, Sean James. Sean’s been filming his brother since he was old enough to press record on a camera, and the duo’s relationship is any parent’s dream.

Watch what that looks like up top, and take a peek at James’s dream road to Vail this winter.
