hmmmm......I've never thouhgt of Jon as one of the top pipe skiers
your talking about seth pistol right???
I've acctually heard many times, and I agree with it, that pipe brings out all of the little mistakes you make. It's 5 times harder to land a cork 9 in the pipe than it is on a jump. If you set the spin a little early on the jump nobody will ever even notice, if you set early in the pipe you're landing flat on your ass in the belly of the pipe. If you have an inconsitent pop on jumps, who cares you don't go quite as big or you land 2 feet farther down the landing than you would have, in the pipe you'll deck out or land in the belly. If you don't land perfectly in the pipe you aren't gonna have enough speed for your next trick. Switch in the pipe is a whole different story than on jumps. Hell if you let your chest drop for a second while you're in the air in the pipe you're gonna land backseat.
I don't think many people appreciate how difficult halfpipe is
Then that means you're a n00b. Sorry to break it to you but you obviously haven't been into the ski scene for that long
^ it is sick but too repetitive,
there are so many other possibilities elsewhere on the mountain
