Where has origonality gone?
How come all we see now are the same over-hucked spins? What happened to frontflips and backflips and lincolns and such? I want so see some pro skiers actually try something unique that have never been done before. Im not saying that spinning isnt cool, i love spinning. But i want to see some more flips of cliffs and such.
I basically just would like to see some originality!
word up son
all the vids have now is spins, no more inverted hucks :(
last good huck segment was seth's in focused
- Clothing - Films - Media - www.phadedproductions.com
what the fuck are you guys talking about
Seth Morrison is the only skier who i still thinks adds some originality
you have got to stop making threads, youve made like 7 today, its like youre the next royal or something.
pros arnt doing them because those tricks dont win comps.
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.
huh? just because you dont see it, it dosent happen?
people do backies, fronties, sideies, upsidownies all the time. just because shane mcconkey dosent do them at the x games dosent mean they dont happen.
ive made 2 threads today dude. and they are unrealated. dont freak out. Im not talking about comps, im talking about ski movies.
but your other thread was about snolerblading wtf?
Charmander is uber steezy, man he fuckin sends it dood!
ive posted in threads but i havent made them. wtf are you talking about dude? I posted teh one about pyramid and chads, and this one. Whats the problem anyways?
do you guys even watch ski vids? I see as many flips, underflip, and rodeo type shit as much as spins. In a contest no, spin to win.
I remember saying something like: I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive. Suddenly, there was a terrible roar all around us, and the sky was full with what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, and a voice was screaming: Holy Jesus. What are these goddamn animals?
Dr. Gonzo: Did you say something?
Hm? Never mind. It's your turn to drive.
No point in mentioning these bats, I thought. Poor bastard will see them soon enough.
why dont you get out there and start throwing front flips and stop judging all these pros because they dont do what you want
like honestly i have had enough with people knocking on pros because they dont do what they want them to
if you want to see some changes do it yourself dont make it like pros are doing something wrong
so everybody on this site should be a little less talk ad allot more ski
all i have for every pro in this sport is respect they throw down like crazy they are out there progressing this sport look how far it came over the last 5 years
so all you kids who are working on your 360s stop complaining about spin to win
so just get out there and YOU do the changes you would like to see in the sport create your own style and feed of others and put your touch onto it
so dont talk down about the pros at all they are better then you and do alot more for the sport
GET OUT AND MAKE THE CHANGES YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE YOUR SELF
maybe someday you will be able to be criticized by some joey for them not liking your steezzzzz
you get me wrong man. I have repsect for evey one of them. I havent dissed any of them ever. I just stated how i love to see flips & shit. And every day i go out skiing i do my best to improve my skill so one day i can do flips off anything. (i attempt flips all the time already btw). I just like original shit, thats all. im not hatin on anyone
This is a good point. I see a lot of kids on the mountain these days wo can do switch 7s and corked 9s and shit all day but still cant do basic inverts. I can throw some cool corks and spins but nothing gets the crowd shitting their pants like my spread-eagle backflips and double backs. And wtf is with the contests that disqualify you for doing a straight back or front flip but have no problem with kids nearly destroying themselves trying to do the biggest spins they can off undersized jumps? When i see kids competing for the best switch 9 over a 25' table I think its f*%cked- Id much rather just see a clean 5 with a mellow rotation than some hucked 900 that has to be landed way down in the flat. I guess i just think the tricks need to fit the jumps. But then again what venue is going to build jumps big enoungh for switch 1440s?
your a tool, let them do what they please.. hucked spins will probably fade away, look at whats happening now double flips and double corks are taking over
they just don't because judges at comps like spins. FAST spins. I wouldn't mind if they were spins with more style
Ski for Life
exactly i just would like to see more style i guess
every high north and coc update last summer almost half the pics were flips........
dumont at x did double front. wester and jon did kangaroo flips. rory does switch double back. then there's mike wilson-aka the king. that guy flips off everything. sammy did like 5 in a row on push. guy who made the thread is dumb
Just tuck it and huck it yo!
hay josh... what you think the speed is like for that jump there?
Oh that's one is about 3 french fries and a pizza cut.
jon is one of my favorites because of his originality. The double front at the Xgames was one of the coolest things ive seen. who does switch double backs? ive never seen one. all im saying is my opinion is that i think spins nowdays are over rated.
ive seen some originality.
whiskey? kangaroo? thats pretty gnar
skimatic frontflip/backflip combos. me gusta
the only time spinning takes control is contest, spin to win
rory bushfield does switch double backs
"wait wait wait, skin check. Ok, just making sure your still white"
pregression. this is where our sport is right now. 4 years ago lincol flips and front/back flips were in. Now big spins are in. Thats just the way things have happened.
im all about the front flips
life is temporary... go ski.
landon gardner threw a huge superman front flip yesterday at the noram mogul champs at snowbowl on his way to second place. it was badass.
All times are Eastern (-4)
