In this episode, we sit down with Hunter Hess. Hunter is on the US Freeski Halfpipe team and can be seen throwing down in the MAGMA videos. In this episode, we hear about Hunter's journey on the competition circuit, get a behind-the-scenes perspective on his videos with Alex Hall, and find out how he managed to get Tom Wallisch & Simon Dumont together to film the intro for MAGMA II. We go over viewer questions at the end which can be submitted on our Instagram @TwoPlankerPod.
