take it with a grain of salt, most contests don't foster or blossom creativity, namely big air contests. big air contests are contests of consitency, not of creativity, they don't hinder anything though, they do what they are designed to do, and that is to show who is the best competitor. x-games/us open aren't contests of creativity. if anything hate on the format, and maybe well will see more contests like orage masters which is the dopest major contest to date that i know of.
ninthward is making some skis and maybe fucking some shit up on the side, and i love it.
