Skied all my life but took a break from 1990 'til last year...
yeah, 14 years...so I got your fancy parabolic skis and I'm trying to figure out everything else. All I know is a lot more people ski the way I like to ski nowadays - back in the day we were basically 'outlawed' and constantly threatened with bans!
So, here's what I want to know:
>>>what any of the 'new' terms mean (for jumps, skis, anything)..I've barely figured out what all-mountain means.
>>>who are the names I should know (Tanner Hall, Seth, that's about all I know)
I love that I'm back skiing, and I'm just trying to get back above water as far as ski culture goes.
The skiing is great - best time this year was last weekend doing Pakalolo at WB.
cab just means switch...or backwards. unnatty is like spinning unnatural to what u usually spin, left or right. skiercross is racing prety much on a shorter course with like other racers at the same time.
Jeepers Creepers, where'd you get the neat sneakers?!?!
90-uphill lincoln-90 is the recipe for an underflip
it means spin one quarter of a 360, do an uphill lincoln (lincoln=side flip or barrel roll) meanin u spin towards the lip of the jump (up the hill from you) and then spin another quarter of a 360.
spinning a 7 is doing a 720, two rotations. 5=540 and 9=900, 1.5 and 2.5 rotations
oh yeah? well me and my friends have been bathing off the southern coast of st. bards, chilling with spider monkeys. tripping on acid gave us a whole new perspective on shit.
