The world of skiing is quite amazing, and the way we push the limits of rails can only be described as, uh, well I just want to hear some opinion, as this has been troubling me for a while.
How come we almost never see snowboarders or even rollerbladers doing whipped spins over 450 to rail taps? There is no argument in it being harder on a snowboard, in fact it would be much easier as they have more torque thanks to thier stance allowing them to spin even faster than us and they may land and slide a rail no matter what point in thier rotation they land at. I would just love to hear an explination as it has been killing me for a few days here!
Maybe the answer lies somewhere in where rails were originally borrowed from, or crossing the line that divides the likes of marc frank montoya from rob holmes?
Help me, NS intellectuals!
