this is a stupid thread.
im not sure why everyone has to constantly hate on aerials like it is some taboo portion of the sport that doesnt count. they've been doing triples for 30 or 40 goddamn years now. "well aerials isnt skiing" -granted there are a fair amount of aerialists that cant actually ski, but most of them can, and can do it VERY well.
Dylan Ferguson has been training to go to the olympics for his whole life. Probably one of the most technically sound skiers on this earth... kid has air sense like a fucking hawk. im sure youve all seen it, but in the last windells edit there's a shot of dylans dub (unfortunately) and im sure only a few of you were at windells to see what that jump looked like. it was a hot 85-90 ft to knuck (almost as long as sammys) but half the lip that sammys had. one of the flatest take offs ive ever seen, hence why a dub was thrown on our sketchy halfpipe to tranny jump before on the piece of garbage big jump. aerialist are used to tossing down on nearly vertical jumps going 30 ft out and 60-70 ft high. what he did was fucking insane.
Our sports going in many different directions. and thats good. shits gonna go wild over the next couple years and i think we all just need to take it with a grain of salt..
