I don't think that people who watch his segment and feel let down by it do so because they think they are better than him.
It is about what we as a consumer are being presented with. Producers take enormous efforts to hype their products, and sometimes no matter how sick the content is, it will fall short of the hype.
That is what happened with Seth's segment. There was so much drama played out over the summer because of the level of skiing that was captured on the film reels during the production of 'The Front Line'.
Anyone and everyone who saw that movie was awestruck by the intensity that Seth was able to produce, he virtually carried the movie. But because we as consumers demand that each and every evolution in ski videos is actually a REVOLUTION, it forces the atheletes and producers to strive that much more to keep us entertained.
Unfortunately, the wildcard element in this is weather (conditions) and for Seth this past year it did not come together.
Cest La Vie.
That said, his skiing has certainly progressed, in focused you can see the commitment he is putting into his tricks. He is stepping up and touching down without dropping the hip. He knows what is expected of him, and he is doing his utmost to deliver.
Yes, it was not his best segment, but he is far from done yet.
