Chas Guldemond shook off the the early season nerves to start the weekend off right in Friday’s snowboard slopestyle Semi-Finals at the Dew Tour Nike Open. Guldemond’s run of nosepress tailside 270 out followed by a 50-50 into frontside lipside on the double rail feature, double backside rodeo, cab double cork 1260, frontside 180 on the wallride, switch back 180 off, finishing with a frontside 720 into a back double 1080, scored him a 90.33 on his first run.

He didn’t even need his second run to win and Guldemond closed semis with a stylish method on his victory lap.  Mikkel Bang, 87.83, and Gjermund Braaten, 87.67, took the second and third spots respectively.
