I worked on a piece for WIRED Magazine that appears in its February issue. Billy Morgan successfully executed the famed snowboarding trick known as the quad cork 1800. I analyzed the trick from start to finish and WIRED has a phenomenal two-page photographic spread that shows the entire trick from stroboscopic images. I calculated several numbers, from launch speed to landing force. Check out the nice spread on pages 20-21 (volume 26, issue 2). I worked with Sophia Chen on the piece and she did a great job putting it all together! Click here for a sneak peak.
