Watch Snowboarder Reira Iwabuchi Become the First Woman to Land a Frontside Triple 1260

On April 5, 20-year-old Japanese snowboarder Reira Iwabuchi landed the first-ever female frontside triple 1260. But it didn’t end there. Shortly after Iwabuchi’s historic send, Canadian Laurie Blouin landed the second-ever women’s cab triple 1260. They join Austria’s Anna Gasser in a realm of beyond-elite female snowboarders. Gasser became the first woman to stick the landing on a cab triple 1260 back in 2018.

However, now Japan’s Reira Iwabuchi and Canada’s Laurie Blouin have joined Gasser as the only female snowboarders to have landed the elusive triple cork (three off-axis flips)—and 20-year-old Iwabuchi claimed a world-first.
