I think its way gnarly, but I never advocate spin to win. If you can do one with style, more power to you and you deserve to win. But spinning for spinning's sake shouldnt win, especially if you dont manage to do any grab. If you're into the no grap super spins then watch Cold Fusion I think it was, a dude does a quad backflip 1440. Way gnarly, but not stylish and not what I think freeSTYLE is all about.
Post because you've got somethin' to say,not cuz you dont want to be a newb. I deal with it. Find your FECTA. Ski UT
how come people sit here and bitch about spin to win, but i dont see anyone doing anything about it
if pep and pollard were here bitching i would understand because they prove they are against it by going to the x games and not throwing anything over a 5
but all of you that bitch about it i bet would throw a 1440 or 1260 if you could do them and you know you could win a comp and get some sponsers by doing them,
i give this kid props, let him do his thing
stop bitching about how ugly it is and go do your owe thing
if you think a double grab looks sicker, sweet deal
but don't bitch about some kid with skills that you don't have
Ski for yourself, love doing it

spins and lands a 1620 in competition! There have been only a handful
of people to ever land a 1620 in competition in the entire world. Check
"Andrew T" Is not only super skilled as a freeride skier, on
the hill, but also cares deeply about what is going on around the world
and is an advocate of political and social issues facing our planet.
did anyone else find this funny?
And I stay high and I still got my diploma
And I still keep the maggie on me like Homer
Looked the same as someone doing a fucking sw 12. I think style stoped around 9s, so why not go bigger and do more spins?
And that guy in my book is alot more "baller" then 90% of the kids on this site. To have the balls to try and spin that much and have to deal with bull shit from little kids like you.
If anyone on here is older than 16, they should remember JF Cusson winning the first ever X-Games skier big air with a switch 720 that was WAY more hucked, penciled, not grabbed, and unstylish as that 1620 was.
And now, switch 7s are being done with unbelievable style.
Someone has to try pushing limits and doing new tricks, and the first ones are rarely very stylish, but if nobody sacked up and went for the first one, then how could anyone eventually figure out how to do it with style?
Watching JF huck that switch 7, way back then, it would have been easy to say "that trick is way to hard, and it won't ever be able to be done with style". If everyone had bought into that, then where would the sport be now?
Maybe one day Andrew will throw that trick over a 120 foot table, floating it with an epic grab, but everything has to start somewhere.
