In all honestly, you are 1/2 correct. Don't make it sound like I'm all over Candides cock here but listen.
Point 1: Switch spins over 7 "They'll get ugly" How can you tell me they will get ugly, maybe he understands everyone and his pet gerbil is pulling swtich 9's and 10's and making them look average, at best. Look at the god damn '05 Us Open Big air, everything was a god damn switch left or right 10, and alot was getting their huck on. I know I have a lot of support on that one. You don't need to be a mega-spinner to be an elite skier, and the slower smaller spins really bring the tech-ness to skiing and show how its done, now some super fast spin off a 60ft booter. He can spin them, ever think he just dosen't feel the need to?
Point 2: "his range of grabs are really bad." Yes in PullUp and in the past the man has had a tendency to pull tail and blunts, but could you really say he couldn't grab saftey, or evenmute, or a phil. If he's crossing his skis, and grabbing the dead tail or real close to it, he could easily grab other ways too, including under the boot. And has in the past. For me, blunts and tails with corked spins look the sickets anyways, and are among the hardest to put down. Please, go out and throw a cab7 off a BC booter, and put down a super big blunt, or even a tail down, and make it look as good, and then stomp it about 10 years in a row, then come back and complain.
Point 3:"he's not that good at unnatural spins" I think I have to beg to differ. Another reference to the Pull Up trailer, which is my easiest ammo-for-argument. Look at his tricks. Tow in rail, left cork 3 blunt, Mammoth vert box, s-coaster rail, cork 5-9 in pipe, at least a 5 blunt on the candide invite 100footer, switch 7, gap box with a switch-up, BC 7 blunt(corked needless to say) Switch cork 3 blunt on the 100footer, cliff drop cork 3 or 5, full on tree jib bonanaza. Yah he goes left side a lot but does that really matter a WHOLE lot, he can and does spin left and right, but his sickest comes from his left. As much as has been said on spinning on both ways, skiing is NOT, I repeate NOT, at that point yet.
Where you are correct is in saying, "So for shoting movies the guy kicks ass" and "Some skiers just focus on different things than the norm..."
Everything else was just plain silly and not looking at the big picture of things.
