exactly this, the young kids these days are the real second generation of freestyle skiers. they get to grow up in the age of doubles and triples.
i remember one of the first edits i ever watched when i first really learned about park skiing was teddy bear crisis and that was 8 years ago and thinking that rodeos and cork 9s were the craziest things imaginable. i wouldnt have believed that doubles would be possible. i still remember riding long straight skis until i saw that video then i saved all of my money over the summer and got a pair of old 1080s
what im trying to say is that the young kids these days are growing up with an advantage. they probably never and will never go through their own gaper phase when theyre learning how to ski. they are learning how to ski in the park with theyre A-bang shortys, full tilts, and saga. they get to go to camps and have coaches and watch edits of tom wallisch and stept and 4bi9 and B&E and they can see that all of this is possible and they can say "today im gonna learn cork 9s" but if you take most of the younger kids that shred in the park into the trees, they wont know what to do because there isnt a rail or jump in front of them and thats not right.
there are also so many more kids hat can throw the fuck down than there were 6,7,8 years ago so nobody is impressed that a 14 year old can huck dubs and big spins.
