A superb three days of snowboarding, movie premieres and parties at an event being dubbing “the best event in snowboarding.” Having made its debut in 2021, STRT JAM returned to Innsbruck for 2022, organised in association with Method Mag and Monster, delivering the vision of pro rider Ethan Morgan. Recap by SOURCE Editor Harry Mitchell Thompson. Additional photos by Theo Acworth.

For the past few days your Instagram feed has been bombarded with burning rings of fire and some of the heaviest street snowboading. With an invite list even stronger than last year’s, one rider commented “if you dropped a bomb on this place right now, the snowboard industry would be dead! Well, at least the core, real scene.” A line that really summed the event up perfectly.

There were lots of industry players including brands and media alike – interesting to see such a strong American turnout at a European event – and organised fantastically by the crew at Method Mag and Monster, it was truly a superb snowboarding event, which celebrated the culture of snowboarding just as much as it did the performance element.

Congrats to event winners Rene Rinnekanags from Finland and Hrund Hanna from Iceland, two Euros taking out a stacked global field.

STRT JAM has announced their next stop for 2023. Brace yourselves Helsinki!
