You're about to see something you've never seen before, and it's really, really f*kkin' awesome. Will Mayo has dropped the best edit of the week, giving new meaning to 'those guys have big heads' - he describes it as big-head riding with medium tricks. As he says, 'Our heads are huge and our tricks are medium at best... but this is how you do it when you're born with an abnormally large cranium.' Riders: Casey Willax, Will Mayo, Tylor Berreth, Zach Soderholm, Anthony Corbo, Cody Boan, Bryce Hucks, Steve Bayliss, Adam Vassau --- This thing made our day. http://vimeo.com/87137159 ©Will Mayo Recently everyone has been discussing where the term 'riding goofy' comes from, even talk show host David Letterman. So let's clear up the confusion - here' s a bit of edumacation fer ya: It comes from surfing, just like snowboarding, and it comes from the 1937 cartoon called Hawaiian Holiday, where the Disney character Goofy stands, for the first time, on a wave with his right foot forward. Hence 'goofy' came to be the name for a right foot forward rider. BAM, your mind has been blown. Daily Blizzard OUT.
