Tanner Hall's last year of competing?!?!
I saw this interview a while back and he said that, 07 was his last year of competing in most of the main comps. I know that he does not do Slopestyle at X because he won it twice in a row. But WTF! Why

Heard it too, but no idea why...
yeah i have no clue either maybe that crash made him change or something
Might as well go out on top i guess
not a fan that tanner quite slopestyle after winning
anyways, that's why i dont like horses
probably got bored of it like what makes this sport fun(well for me atleast) is pushing youslelf to be better then everyone else but once u have been the best for a wile it probably loses its thrill
Do a kickflip!!!!
idk about this year but last year i remember hiim saying he was just gunna do pipe because it was easier on his ankles, not because he was winning...the one thing i hate is in any interview he always brings up his crash, idk it just seems like old news
To become old and wise...you must first become young and stupid.
didnt he say that like last year too?

If you cant live without skiing, I can live with you.
hes probably quitting because he can just go around and heli ski and shred pow all the time and not worry about comps. seems like a good idea to me.

so i know more about you in the sex area? so im an alien. good conclusion. or i get more play than you and actually know shit about it other than when i see a girl for some reason my penis gets hard!-hucker22

I claimed Drew Hay's sister for 09'
he quit slopestyle 'cause he doesn't like losing.
after u do something for years either u get tired or u want to let someone else win or u wanna try something new

he lost once and that was due to absolutely terrible judging, the worst ive ever seen in my life. you have no idea what your talking about.
i cant take him[liam downey] seriously cuz his name reminds me of that downy bear from back when i was a kid -d loc
I don't deny there are bad things in the US right now, hell, 51% of the country to be exact. But god damnit, our country being fat is NOT a problem. I do't give a shit how fat people are. hell, fat kids are harder to kidnap, that means our country is safer.
I think pipe is a little better on the ankles, and he wants to focus on progressing in the bc
You know you have the coolest cab driver when he says, 'And we're off like a prom dress.'
Pklink04: "Yeah, she snowboards..."
Murphski: "Be careful, you dont wanna catch it."
exactly, I still get pissed off about that.
He really doesn't need to keep compeiting, most people at his level would have quit a long time ago cause they'd rather just go have fun heliskiing and stuff but he loves competition, he thrives on it. But ya he probably wants to just go do his own thing.
He's probably not in slopestyle firstly cause his ankles are bad and secondly cause he just crashed really badly in pipe

t-hall is to fuckin cool for comps and he prolly doesent like bein blazed round all them people at one time

It's kinda sad. The end of an era.
man im depressed now. but i still dont think he's gonna quit.
how many snowboarders does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
27. 1 to do it, 2 to say they can do it better, and the rest to sit in the landing.
is tanner hall the guy trying to copy candide thoves on the jibs?
i think he is done b/c every interview he always mentions how he was skiing powder instead of competing. I think that being co-owner or whatever of armada and having his own production company takes up most of his time to train in the pipe and park
Had this after last years X Games and it applies agian:
You know what really grinds my gears, you ESPN Fuck You
competeing can take the fun out of skiing
hes already won so much. If you can why not just got ski backcountry rather than park.
tanner is like the MFM of skiing hes good and has been ontop for a while, he has mad loot, hes just done while he is still ontop of his game.
man the best time to quit is when your ontop. Hes built himself a solid place in the skiing comunity and now its time to ski some pow and bang his hot girlfriend
We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old becase we stop playing- Unknown
ya and two in a row made him feel like a loser. you are stupid
you guys need to chill the fuck out with the '05 X-Games. Gagnier deserved his win and anyone not agreeing with that because of the fact that "one-footers are gay" can go hang himself. Anyway, let's not start that debate again.
I think Tanner's quitting competition because he wants to focus a lot on filming. Competition is really, really time consuming and doesn't let you a lot of time to do a lot of filming. Take TJ for example, he owns pretty much every competition (not this year though) but has never really had a good, full-lenght segment in a movie, except from Ten, and it was his first year as a pro and did not do many comps that year.
i guess he says that a lot, like years before he said it was his last year of competing.. but he will for sure compete in the olympics when skiing is in the halfpipe.

SKI OR DIE
That was off the meat rack!
dude...cab 3 on the hip thing... gay 1 footer...horrible messy style..... trick wernt as gnarly on the flat down... ganier did not deserve to win...it just made better TV for x games if tanner didnt make the first ever 4 peat....ganier sucks hands down....ive never seen someone lack more style than he does...he single handedly ruined skiing...and all you fucking french canadians joined him in donning carson kresslys wardrobe and rollerblading around proclaiming that skiing was the sport of homosexuals.....THANKS!!!
wow your an idiot, gagnier was way smoother in everything, his one footer is way harder and nollie lipsliding (trust me i can do nollie lips consistently and have landed maybe 3 one footers ever), his switch 10 had a more tweaked out grab that was held for longer, and just about everything was similar except gagnier holds his grabs longer.

Gear Pimp: i might just hook you up
I hate this shit about judging. Those guys have the hardest jobs, and do it to the best of their abilities. All of the judges are respected riders, so please, give them a break, they score what they see appropriately, and in a lot of cases, it comes down to inches. I doubt many of you could do better. There will always be controversy in judging, and if you disagree with it (as I find myself doing frequently) just deal with it and know that these guys try their best.

see, I was exactly speaking about morons like you that need to chill out. and more than that, I was talking about fucking racist ignorant morons like you who need to quit this site and get a life instead of bashing every canadian because you don't like ONE skier in there.
he probs was just puffin when he said that comment

If T Hall quit comps then maybe Dumont can win it.
Shit Happens When You Party Naked
He is sick of them, thats all hes been doing and they are played out. now its time to have fun
"wait wait wait, skin check. Ok, just making sure your still white"
Terrible judging? He bent over and touched the ground after his sw. 10. And he hasn't competed in the US Open or X-games slope since. You can attribute it to his ankles. But he still hits urban rails--why quit slopestyle?. Coming off a rail early and landing on concrete is just as hard on the ankles as knuckling a table.
I'm not talking shit . . . If I were Tanner, I would do the same thing. Why not protect your legacy and just enter a couple comps a year that you are sure to win?
two in a row? that was before the streak ended. now he avoids slopestyle like the plague. since i'm stupid, could you explain that to me?
every post i've seen from you has had candide thoves in it. its starting to piss me off that you cant even spell it right.

THall is probably gonna go smoke and hit powder for the rest of his life that crash changed him a lot but he's Thall he can do whatever he wants

maybe tanner finally realizes that comps are gae and he doesn't need to do them to be in the videos and continue a skiing career.
maybe tanner hall just quits because he realized he was not a tru Black niggas.
you're not funny. ever.
and come on guys t-hall is the like the oldest dude out there, man next year he'll be like 23 and unable to walk due to arthritice and old man problems. he's fucking ancient

i dought this is his last year
i like pow pow!
I'm not trying to be funny nigga.
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha racist......hahahahahahahahahahhahaha...ganier did less tricks than tanner that year..tanner should have won purely on the fact that he dlayed the flat-down AND did a much better trick on the hip...other than that the runs were pretty much comparable scorewise...nollie lip VS 1 footer..i would say 1footer might just get the edge...not in how good it is just how "tech""progressive" it is(fucking french canadian douchebags fuck off and qiut skiing you are a fucking laighing stock)..pretty much tanner beat chalres on the hip adn flat-down they were tied in everything else but i will give you the 1 footer....so there are the facts that speak for themselves..if you disagree you are just plain retarded...i know im biased but im not an idoit if ganier deserved to win i would say it but still call him gay...tanner deserved to win.
According to NS's creater, Matt Harvey, he clearly states that Tanner should of won, in a very close competition with Gagnier.
