Over the years there has only been one Candide and he was the man, he had the style, the tricks and most importantly, he was just crazy and loved to do insane stuff! I don't think that anyone has matched the stuff he has done even if some kids might have done more flips. But when I saw this video of Jesper Tjäder, the only person I could think of was Candid, as this is something Candid and no one else would consider doing!
I remember when I sent Jesper a message on freeride.se 5 years ago inviting him to come shoot with us in Norway as I saw something special in this kid. Since then Jesper has been killing it, but its not been until this year that he has really taken the big step, and with this crazy mega double backflip I think I would now rank him as my favorite free skier to watch, much tanks to him reminding me of the good old days when Candide ruled the world! Just have a look at this video and you will see what I mean, can't wait to see what Jesper comes up with next week!
Up here in Åre things are good, its great to get up at 6am on a Saturday and get to work as no one replies back so you get a ton of stuff done! That way I can ear up to the gym and do some rehab with a peace of mind, something thats been a bit tough over the past few days as its been non stop with craziness!
