Ever wonder what's going through the heads of pro snowboarders when they're about to drop into a run? Or how about what they're thinking of when they're 20, 30, 40 feet or more up in the air? Well, the folks at Burton and KarmaloopTV have the answers along with some amazing video in their "Element of Run" series.

At this year's Burton US Open in Vermont, 11 pro riders were asked about the feeling of adrenaline when they're about to drop into a run, the sensation of flying, and why the love the sport.

So, whether you're hitting the slopes on the reg or prefer leaving the crazy feats to the pros, you'll definitely appreciate these shots.
