Belan is super smoov in the pipe, but I still think it is painful to see people not boosting further out. Trying to be smooth in the pipe doesn't mean that you can't pop. CR, Candide and Simon are getting respectable air. CR said in the last issue of POWDER, that the goal is to boost like the X games with consistency. Shawn White can go 14 feet out consistently every run. CR said 5 out 10 he gets worked. But that's how the progression begins. As for Belan, I know he has it in him to do this in the next couple of years as well, because he is one of the best pipe skiers in the world. I would just personally like to see him boost even more. The smooth factor will follow. We're cheering you dawg.
