If Hornbeck starts to incorporate Casabon style crook slides and blunts, he'll have to enter the conversation for hands down best park jibber (not talking about his jumping ability, though, his jumping is constantly improving— right rodeos ala EP...what?) out there. He strikes a perfect balance between tech and style. Thank god for his style....I'm so tired of seeing kids just throw as many combos of switchups possible and calling that "progression". Hornbeck might just be my favorite skier to watch these days.
Dear Mr. Hornbeck, Casabon, CASG, Wesson, Parry, Harlaut, and Wallisch,
Thanks for leading the charge for creative jibbing.
