has anyone else noticed that the only trick in pipe that they land switch on is the last one where they do a 7 or 10 (im relating to comps)? so if everyone is doing a 7 as their last trick, would it really hurt someones run if they did a 9 instead? this brings me to the point that are twins even necessary in the pipe? you will gain more speed with a race ski which would enable you to boost even further out of the pipe. i know that candide and cr have their special 1080s but for something as an amatuer comp wouldn't it make more sense to be riding race skis? or even almost any company riders other than salomon?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that race skis and the such are weighted differently than twins, which gives them a very uneven feel in the air. I jumped with my friends disco sticks once and the felt very nose heavy, making them very hard to maneuver and spin in the air. Other than that, there is no other reason not to use a non-twin tip ski if your not landing switch...
race shits wont flex as well with the wall of the pipe, plus that guy above is right, different weight, and usually differ mount lines - fuck race skis, if you must, get a piar of twins and spray paint them gold or with a checkerboard, peace
Listen to dad---shit in the woods not the toilet
runs in the future will have a combination of regular and switch for sure...i can see 7's being thrown in the middle of a run, to a switch 3 or something.
what im getting at is that switch tricks will not be thrown at the very end, and runs wont be entirely switch either, it will be a combination of the two that will win comps in my eyes.

you guys should maybe check out x games qualifier superpipe or us open super pipe...I beleive somebody did switch tricks at the very first hit and also in the middle and continued on with other tricks...
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!!!
a lot of people are doing switch tricks in the pipe...maybe you just don't notice it. For example, shawn sullivan in sm3 does a switch alley-oop 5, turpin sticks huge switch rodeos (and does complete pipe runs in switch also)and tanner in propaganda does a switch rodeo also, but it's a qp not a pipe.
Freeskiing is a lifestyle, and true skiers are the ones who live this lifestyle, not the ones who follow it.
yeah, i was about to say, turpins gonna make everyone need twins in the pipe

'I was in the waiting room of my doctor's office before a physical this morning. There's nothing wrong with me, but healthy people get physicals just-for-the-hey-of-it every couple of days. When they finally mispronounced my name, I got up and walked down a hall with a nurse. After a while, the doctor came in and inspected my holes. He said that I should lose weight and consider stop smoking. I blew smoke in his face and explained that he is a douche bag. We all had a good laugh and he agreed.' -Skydaddy
