Snowboarding the clouds is so much cooler than normal snowboarding

If there is no snow to snowboard it only makes sense to hook yourself onto a helicopter and take your snowboarding to the clouds. Watch as stuntman Wildman Adrian Cenni carves on clouds 6,000 feet in the air while the helicopter flings him around at 80mph. It looks so sick. Like a human Silver Surfer or something. » 5/26/15 11:44pm 16 minutes ago
