So maybe she doesn't have the biggest bag of tricks. But it's big.... for her age... and especially because Kelly is a girl.
She's the best because she's pushing girl's park skiing harder than anyone else I can think of. Yes, age has to do with it. Think about it... when was the last time you were in the park and saw a little kid throwing down harder than you, convincing you to send it? I could be wrong, but I'm sure the girls are watching, and I'm sure it's pushing them to go bigger.
She's also not just skiing around until the comps, and then trying to do well. She actively promotes herself, and look where it's gotten her... k2, Red Bull, Nike 6.0....
I was just talking the other day about how I've never really seen a girl do a blunt 9 that I can think of... Then she releases her season edit from last year.
Best wishes to Kelly for another banger season, can't wait to see what she will accomplish.
