A quick chat with Pettit and Hunder at the driving range, pre WSSF big air

Comments by Henrik Lampert/

We’re enjoying a rainy Saturday afternoon here in Whistler, with just a few hours to go until the WSSF big air contest kicks off. Following lunch and Caesars at Earls (oh weird, again?) I made for the local driving range with Pettit and Hunder. Between whacking some balls, I spoke with the two of ‘em about their golf game, tonight’s big air, and the other various happenings amid the festival.
