The Sprocking Cat is still sprocking! What is there to be said about him that you don't already know? Giving Terje a snowboard at the ripe young age of 13 was like passing a basket ball to Michael Jordan for the first time.. The rest is history.. With more titles, movie parts, trophies and "Perfect lines" under his belt than a retired porn star, Terje keeps spending his days doing what he's always done, circumnavigating the globe in search of the best snow, waves and coconuts. Then there's the running of his own event, The Arctic Challenge, being a gardening dad or a distinctly skilled soccer player.. His highest air record from 2007 still stands proud to this day and if you haven't seen Terje's seminal signature movie "Subjekt Haakonsen" then go do your homework. Next year you can see him in Veeco's upcoming film "True To This".

Mr. Plant World Premier - Plymouth, NH

On the first day of October, Volcom Snowboarding was set to premier its newest Veeco Production, Mr. Plant. With the film being based around the travels of New Hampshire born, Pat Moore, it was only natural for the residents of Pat's home town to be the first to lay eyes on the masterpiece. The team arrived in Plymouth a day early to get a look at the best the town had to offer and were lucky enough to have the home town hero himself show us around town. Amongst the crew to make the journey to the North East was Terje Haakonsen, Jamie Lynn, Bryan Iguchi, Curtis Ciszek, Seth Huot, Mike Rav and Zach Normandin. Volcom Snowboarding team arrives at Pat's house in Plymouth, NH. Jamie never travels without a few markers in his pocket. This is what he calls "doodling". Pat showing the team the best of NH. The team approves! Turns out Plymouth has a rad little skatepark too. Rav shows em how it's done in the NE. Jamie got down.   Once the sun dropped, excitement grew. People began arriving from all over the map to see the films debut. There were influential members of the snowboard media, snowboard industry, shredders from all over the North East, and local fans a like. The theater filled up almost immediately as the anticipation was running at an all time high, Terje and Jamie might have even been the last two seats filled in the 450 seat venue. Pat and Jake were plenty nervous, but excited to show off all their hard work. Snowboarder Magazine's Tom Monteroso traveled across the country to check out the film. He figured he might as well catch a quick conversation with Jamie while he was at it.   True snowboard fans were not hard to find! All the Eastern Boarder shreds were there. Curtis and Jake were excited Billy Anderson showed up. Pat Moore was highly desired that night, and for good reason! As everyone pilled in and seats were filled, the mad scientist behind the film's creation, Jake Price, stood proud aside Pat Moore as they introduced their finished product. Pat offered gratitude to his home town for making him the person he is today, and Plymouth offered it back with a standing ovation. The theater carried that energy straight through to the first ever showing of Mr. Plant. There was absolutely no shortage of hoots and hollers throughout the film, as the soundtrack rattled skulls and the riding blew minds. Volcom's Ryan Immegart and Mike Aho accompany Volcom Snowboarding's main man Oren Tanzer in introducing Pat and Jake to the stage. Pat brought up his fellow snow team members and introduced each one to the croud.

New Hampshire gives their thanks back to Pat for all his hard work and loyalty! Zach was down! So was Mike! Finally, the film finished up and the lights went on. Pat's home town was off their heads' with excitement, and poored out into the streets of Plymouth to carry on the celebration. Pat, Jake and the rest of the Volcom Snowboarding crew followed close behind, and had one hell of a night! Mr. Plant left the audience buzzing. Pat was a hot commodity after the film's debut! The streets of Plymouth went off!
