its retarded everbody that says FIS sucks ussually doesn't know anything about FIS, i see it all the time punk ass kids wearing that stucker and i ask them if they even know what FIS is all about and they don't have a clue
'proud citzen of the NS Isle'
yah, FIS is actually a good thing for skiing, mainly for racing, but good nonetheless.
if you look at halfpipe competitions for snowboarding, they all seem to go really well, and i havent seen any problems with the judges, where with the X-Games, there are constantly problems with judging
no its ef eye ess, and the FIS isnt gonna sue one person who made a hoodie for himself, and maybe they would sue him if he was selling them for profit, and first they would have to find out he was doing it
Anyone who thinks FIS is remotely a good thing may proceed to shove all of their ski equipment directly up their rectum and throw themselves at the nearest speeding car...
If I can't do it homey, it can't be done. I'ma let the champagne bottle pop ima take it to the top fo sho ima make it hot.
Trouble maker whaaaat!!!
FIS rules?? FIS is the enemy assbag. You want freeskiing to be as anal and controlled as racing? thats why freeskiing is so rad you FIS bitches, theres no organization controlling us telling us whats acceptable and whats not, whats worth 4 points and whats woth 3. its just us bangin out rad shit and pushing the sport. the second that something like FIS takes over freeriding it will be dead. FIS DOES SUCK, it will ALWAYS suck.
Well, SOMEBODY is saying what's worth 4 points, what's worth 3 points, aren't they? Just look at the state of slopestyle and big air contests last season: Switch tricks scored higher than unnatural, etc. It wasn't even consistent (but better than in the past).
Anybody who wanted to be in the money tossed the same switch (pick a trick) 900 with a (pick a grab) on every pass. To the "uneducated" eye, it all looked the same. Boring.
Pipe run: straight air - alley-oop 180 - flare - unnatural 540 - inverted 900 - flatspin 540 - etc. It was like friggin' compulsaries. 'Cept for Turpin, that sick switch-ridin' bastard!
Don't get me wrong, I watch these athletes, in awe. It just seems to me that contests are setting the direction and motivation for a number of skiers, and just because "FIS-sanctioned" isn't in the title, doesn't make it any less de rigueur.
