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.
