As this session draws to an end, one camper stood out from the rest. Mike Mamalakis, a 16-year-old hailing from Bloomington, Minnesota charged super hard this session, yet stayed humble as accolades from campers, coaches and onlookers were shouted. From double backflips to corked 1260s to rail mastery, Mike exhibited unmatched skill on the hill. Freeskier managed to nab Mike for a couple of questions to get to know him a little better.
How did you get so good riding in Minnesota?
Well I ride at a mountain called Highland Hills. I ditch racing practice to go ride park. It has got a nice little setup, a 45-ft. table, a dope up-flat-down box and a 50-ft. rail. It's sweetness.
So racing, huh? Do the ladies think you look good in spandex?
You know it. It cups my big booty.
How did you hear about Windells?
Myself and some of my friends found Windells on the internet like two years ago. I've wanted to come but couldn't until this session. I'm trying to convince my dad to let me stay another session.
What have you got going in the future?
I'll probably go to college in a couple years, then skip a bunch of it to go skiing. Kind of like racing.
Who is your favorite pro?
I like Sammy because he has dope style. He is a rad dude and a nice guy for sure. And so you don't have to ask, my favorite food is baclava because I am Greek.
"hmm i always wanted to be a roflcopter pilot."
thank God its about damn fucking time. i was going to kick him in the balls if he didn't get any exposure cuz damn it he kills it and one of the nicest kids out there. best time ever was when we got to hyland super early for this tv thing. we skied at sunrise which was super dope then went back to the house i was taking care of to watch ski movies and eat toaster strudel. then came back at open and killed it all day.
then i dont think that youve ever used them ryan. I had the 06 stls and they where sick
seriously why are so many people viewing this? Are pervs like typing porn into "google and they find this and are are like mmmm newschool, that must mean little girls, and click it?"
yeah i think we need open season on emos. they are not indigenous to this planet so they should be exterminated so the native flora and fauna can live in peace and harmony
the 07 STLs are the most durable and best park skis ive ever ridden. Super poppy, they even carve like a mofo. All my edges are in tact, which is saying a lot from a kid whos gone through 8 pairs of Lines through warranty.
