Ok. i was gonna post this in the thread bout his lil push edit, but i think it deserves its own thread.
Eric pollard, is in my opinion, the number 1 most influencial skier in our time. i dont even have to explain why, cause most of you already understand (if you dont, go get and watch as much of his footage as you can). i dont know about you guys, but i am just so intrieged with his ridding, how he does things, etc etc, i think a seth morrison style documentary about pollard, from his early begginings to his current ridding, as well as a lot of commentary and background would be mind blowing. for everything he has done for the sport, he deserves his own movie, to say the least.
who wants to see it happen?
oh yeah, iberg should def. make it(maybe as a counter/bonus movie to the new movie next year?)
Yeah, they have a little biography on him in the Helly Hansen Free movie Happy Happy. It's pretty dope.

1) What do you guys want? 2) Sour cream and onion chips, and some dip man, beef jerky, Hagen Daz ice cream bars, Capn' Crunch with the little crunch berries, pizzas, we need two big pizzas man, everything on them, chocolate gotta have chocolate, graham crackers, and little marshmallowes, we'll make some smores man! Water, whole lot of water and............Funyuns...Yeah!
pollard is my god too - id kill everyone in this forum for his style,
yeh, that means you too.
But that said, he hasnt influenced skiing like seth - YET. Hes gotta get even more visable, its his sort of efortless style that will get kids to not start snowboarding if they see how steeze skiing can be when its done right (ie, gorillaz shouldnt ride pow, its just ugly).
i agree that he schould get his own movie, but iburg schould not do it. Kris Osteness schould do it. The reason for that is because of well he is on his game ( Teddybear Crisis) and well Kris and Pollard are extreamly good friends. Pollard has worked with Kris on soo many shoots and movies that they just have a great feel for each other. Ohh and not to mention they were both on line skis at the very begining.
Jer: I would slam my cock in a car door to ride right now......fucking summer.
im sure pollard skis some intenes shit, i'm just atlking about bringing his tricks to thes lines...it always seems like he has a jibbing part to his seg (w/ booters etc) and then a big mountain one...he needs to combine them...and throw shit liek seth does, first time on some crazy peak, no prepartion of the takeoff etc....imagine him thrwoing a steezy 180 off a AK 50fter at the bottom of some sick line? or a cork 3 off a 60 fter halfway through a gnar AK setup?
That would be dope, but very hard to do, which is why Seth and a few others (Dana Flahr) do tricks off cliffs in real lines with no takeoff prep. It would be so hard to have the right balance on take off at high speed.
