The past season I was messing around in the pipe doing butters which isnt really any thing new. But then I was standing on top of the pipe and thought why not try keeping it below the deck and trying spins with taps on the wall, ended up doing a few. Thing is I have never seen an edit with those tricks. Has anyone else done one of these or know of an edit that has a tap on the wall?
mini-pipes as a whole should be a mainstay at all resorts. the reason you don't see as many skilled pipe skiers is there's nowhere for them to learn other than these massive 18-22ft monsters that are rarely built and maintained properly (in ontario at least)
but yes, jibs on the side of the pipe are fun. i miss pipes with boxes and wallrides on the deck

Doing lip tricks in the pipe is a lot of fun. In regards to taps and such a couple springs ago around the time of WCS I remember seeing Jeff Curry trying to do some sort of nollie/nose tap the coping/deck air to fakies in a 1/4 pipe. It's hard to explain but it looked pretty sick.
For sure, I remember labrador in NY used to have boxes on the sides back about 12 years ago. Things were actually boxes pretty much, like 3 feet maybe tall and not sure the length. I remember seeing some people slaying it. Also I think thats was the first time I saw somebody really throw down on skis. It was ski patrol. Dude was filming with a friend and throwing alley oop cork 5's?(Not sure what the right word is. It was like a flair in bmx)
Damn I just nostalgia'd. And Mr. Bishop, that was my take on OP doesn't even lift.
