Alex Lopez Demonstrates Lost Art of Turning

Next Up

Up-and-coming Bend talent Alex Lopez shows off his Craig-Kelly-esque, surfy style at his home mountain, Mount Bachelor. Despite a tough season in Oregon, this short, two-minute clip reveals that there are still some good turns to be had.

Son of big wave surfing legend Gerry Lopez, Alex quite obviously inherited his father's world-famous turning ability and brought it to Bachelor's undulating terrain.

It's incredibly refreshing to see an edit with great turning, and nothing more. If you can't relate to guys hitting urban features, jibs, cheese wedges, and the like, take a few minutes to watch this young gun remind you of how fun it is to turn a snowboard.
