I landed my first 900 today, it was in a competition too. I was so stoked, landed it perfectly clean, not a flinch on the landing. Didn't win though, because the judges judged by distance rather than by the trick (and I only went 45 feet). What the fuck kind of big air competition judges by distance? It was just a goddamn huckfest. My first trick was a lui kang 180 (56 feet), and the second was the 45-foot 900. The winner was a guy who did an 80-foot mute grab and CRASHED, then did an 85-foot screamin' seamen, kicked his ski off in midair, and ate shit hardcore. He WON- and crashed on both of his tricks, while I stuck both of mine perfectly, and with mad style too (if I may compliment myself). No one else in the division even came close, one guy tried a 720 and crashed. I didn't even place. Fuckhead judges- WHO THE FUCK JUDGES A BIG AIR COMPETITION BY DISTANCE?
Sorry. Rant is over.
