Anna Gazer: First Female Snowboarder To Land A Cab Triple
Another feather in the cap for Anna Gazer, the Olympic champion as she lands a cab triple cork. This Austrian snowboarder becomes the first female to do so!
“Usually when I want to try a new trick I know in the morning that I want to try it. Today, was different as the big jump was in good shape. I just went for it without telling anyone, and I stomped it! I’m so stoked! This trick was one of my bigger goals but I didn’t think I’d be able to land it that early in the season!” Anna said in an interview to Redbull.
In Snowboarding, a Cab Triple 1260 accounts for taking off in the switch position with your ‘wrong’ foot forward, followed by three-and-a-half rotations in the air, and then landing in the forward position.
After performing this historic piece of snowboarding at the pre-season Prime Park sessions at the Stubai glacier in Austria, Anna says, “Today it just felt right and I am happy I ticked that one off my list.”
