Mickael was so far ahead of his time. it is not just hype from skiers on this site, listen to other pros who skied with him. In my opinion that is the best compliment you can get and he is very well respected for what he brought to the sport from a stylistic standpoint. At a time when skiers were just trying to learn a trick and then move to the next one, mickael was making it them look good. Maybe some of you are too young to have seen him at the USOpen or to even have watched him roll through a park on a randome day, but it was something incredible. Do yourselves a favor and grab royalty, stereotype, and the 2 minutes he has in strike 3 and think about what you were doing in 2001 and 2002.

...the fuck you talking 'bout? mickael has every single little technical aspect of park skiing on lock. he carves perfectly in and out of every trick, his grabs are as on point as can be, and tell me, how are cab d-spin 10 blunts landed to perfection not technical? mickael IS technical perfection, which is why his style is out of this world.
T-heed had shit off jumps, dont even compare the two. Mike D. slays on every aspect of skiing. That switch 10 wasnt techy enough for you? And who cares if he's gone too thug for his own good and wears shirts that say " I AM GHETTO" hes the same person. His style was unmatched for his era, so dont go saying his part "wasnt even that good" because its bullshit.
if anyone skied with that type of style right now everyone on this forum would be on their dick. hes style was flawless and he was plenty tech considering he dosent even really ski anymore and could still kill it harder than half the pros sking year round
sw cork 10 was dooppeeeeee. those ro 7s tho were so smooth tho. best ive really ever seen
