Ok so guys park shoots are coming, and big park jumps are going to get build. and the most talented skiers in the planets are going to hit those big jumps.
every one can agree that the coolest park shots last year were ahmet switch backflip shifty, b dog hand drag 180 and parker's front double nose.
We all know they can dub 10, switch dub 10 , dub 12 both ways etc...
we ve seen it. many times. in every contest. EVERY contest.
no one cares about that even 15 years old put double corks in their edits. making the jump bigger doesnt make a double 12 any more fun.
I dont think anyone wants to see another double with a mute grab.. So i cooked up a list of tricks i want to see on those big jumps.
Lincoln double nose grab. ( ill buy the dvd featuring this trick on a big (80+) jump)
Switch lincoln (with a true tail if possible)
cork 7 shifty screamin seamen
bio (or rodeo whatever) 7 or 9 reverse mute
Bio 7 double leading nose (both hands on left skis if spinning left)
cork 3 true nose true tail garett russel style.
cork 9 double leading tail (both hands left skis if spinning left)
rodeo 5 reverse true tail. (i dont know if it s possible)
bring back the big gap to rails also.
we re seeing so much creativity on urban, why not on park shoots ?
i dont mean to diss but i see switch cork 5 japan or cork 9 tails every freaking day in the park, and they are awesome tricks, but let s see something different.
every one feel free to add some tricks to the list as long as they are possible, and staying in the same spirit.
more of gus kenworthy's double grabs (japan to mute, nose to blunt)

i agree with you 99%. the only part i don't agree with is where you say you always see switch 5 tail and cork 9 blunt. when you do these tricks, it's all about making it your own and giving it something that nobody else has, or else i do admit they can be boring. the best style, the best shifty, the most tweaked, the double grab. these things are what seperate a good skier from a great skier.
but slower spins, sicker grabs all the way. taps, presses, butters, shiftys, and shuffles also please!

But I mostly agree with you. If you're going to do a dub 10 or 12, it better be fucking something, anything, other than a fucking mute. I'm all for hucking crazy shit, and if you're doing dub 16s or triple with mutes I'm stoked. But honestly I have seen probably a solid 500 dub 10s and 12s with mutes this season.
Triples. Yes please
Unnatural dub 10/12 with something other than mute
Natural helicopter spins (dub 14+)
Dub 7. Somebody do it.
Everything in OPs post seems pretty sick as well
Let's see some originality this year, and not the same tricks from every god damn person
Frido was close, I know, although people really weren't sure if it was a double or triple. I saw the replay, and it definitely looked like a legit triple. He was so close, he pretty much had it, but couldn't stay on his feet. I think that if someones gonna stick the triple on JOI, it will either be Sammy, Russ or Bobby. I'm pretty stoked for the comp, perhaps we will even see a 1800 go down? JOI is gonna end the season with a bang, I'm sure of it.
