The Suzuki Nine Knights event saw two world records of Highest Ski and Snowboard Airs on a Hip by skier David Wise (USA) and snowboarder Christian Haller (SUI). The pair soared 14.2 and 11.3 meters above the hip, respectively. "It was not a goal, but I decided to go as high as a could, record or not. To take the title home is an experience of a lifetime" Wise said about the day.
Haller told the press, "The conditions were ideal, and I felt safe and comfortable. The record was cool, but for me it was more personal and about progressing." Check out both videos from this historic weekend.
