C.R. Johnson

, 16, learned to throw a 1440. That’s four helicopters. Which was sick enough to land him in the snowboard flick, TB8: Infinity. “We rarely put skiers in our films,” says Waide Hoyt of Standard Films. “But I know of no snowboarders who do 1440’s.” Since the filming, C.R. has competed in the X Games and the Gravity Games…and finished the 11th grade.
