i think the whole gangsta image is gettin really played and for the most part is giving us as skiers a bad image. skiing is supposed to be fun and over the years we've made it into a fashion/popularity contest and distanced ourselves from each other by considering ourselves better than kids that are just starting out skiing cuz we can throw cork 7s and they do straight airs. why not put are effort towards being friendly and outgoing and helpin each other out. taking skiing in a whole new direction like snowboarding is kinda heading. just rollin wit your friends and having a good time and enjoying yourself.
as for skiing, i def. think it needs to be headin in a more style based direction and less crazy hucked flips or spin to win type stuff. if ou think about it, jons kangaroo flip is borderline aerial type stuff and its only a matter of time til someone tries a triple.
good thread bro, and i think its up to all of us and the industry as a whole to change the definiton of skiing...
notice how i said BORDERLINE.
i love kangaroos and dj flips and all that, but i think it should stop at that. as long as skiers keep the steeze in doubles and spins, im all for progression. even henriks 1620, he grabbed it almost the whole way. thats sick imo
