For you snowboarders out there that think skiing is for senior citizens and cream puffs, you haven’t met our crazy friend Erik Roner. This world class skier has taken the sport to intense heights, literally, by combining his passions for base jumping and flying down steep mountain faces attached to a couple of fiberglass planks. His wild stunts have been featured in numerous magazines, films, and TV shows. On Nitro if there is ever a stunt that involves snow, Erik is first in line. His undying love for snow and the extreme has led us to believe he is part Eskimo, and part lunatic. When there is no snow to be found, in order to get his skiing fix, he actually pulls out the roller skis and catapults himself off ramps to do crazed acrobatics in the air. Heck, that’s why we love him!
For Erik, Nitro Circus is just an outlet to do what he loves. Good thing he loves the maniacally insane activities that we do. Plus he is nice enough to pack Travis’s chute for him. Talk about trusting your friends. Next time you hear someone yell out “Look, its a bird, its plane” you say “no you idiot, it’s Erik Roner the flying squirrel.” Hey Erik, nice tramp stamp , and thank you, for bein you.
