Carlsbad, CA (March 8, 2011) — TransWorld SNOWboarding, the world’s largest and most respected snowboard magazine, has captured exclusive footage of the first Backside Triple Cork 1440 ever landed during filming of the title’s new video project Park Sessions. The seemingly impossible trick was landed by 17-year-old pro snowboarder Mark McMorris at Snowmass Park in Aspen, Colo.
Mark McMorris was chosen by TransWorld SNOWboarding to assemble a crew for the first installment ofthe new video series, which included fellow riders Gjermund Braaten, his brother Craig, and Tyler Flanagan. A photographer and two filmers followed the Canadian flip-phenom and company around for a few days before McMorris landed the first-ever Backside Triple Cork 1440.

TransWorld SNOWboarding’s “Park Sessions” captures a crew of riders, as they shred different public parks around the country and session. Instead of closed-off, exclusive shoots on jumps that only the pros can hit, the Park Sessions goes down in regular public terrain parks to film.
