hot.pocketYoke get your shit together, you should know there was zero originality in skiing before the bunch.
I reallllllly hope I just need to check my meter and that you're trolling. Yoke's comment is spot on.
The bunch has popularized a style that had been lurking around for a while. Some of what they do is truly innovative, but plenty of other pros do mind bending shit too. I like watching them ski but watching kids trying to imitate them just gets corny. I know, just let people ski. But if you point a camera at yourself you are asking to be critiqued.
The thing that annoys me is that people have this perception of the bunch as being 100% original. People have been doing weird creative stuff in skiing for much longer than these guys. A lot of what they do has already been done. And they aren't the only ones innovating right now. I'll watch a random edit from a kid at ruka or an edit from edollo and see much more in it than a bunch edit. And why isn't keeshlife bigger than it is?
I honestly think that huge part of the bunch emulation phase is due to how they dress. Kids latch onto it almost as much as the skiing style. Obviously people can't do the same crazy shit magnus does but they can look like him. This is just ski culture at its finest though, nothing new OP.
