i have noticed that a lot of ams, or non pros, doing better stuff than the pros...or just as sick. For instance, i skied with Brent Abrams at High North, he was going as high or higher than Tanner outta the quarter pipes and doing 9s just as sick...Yes, hes sponsored, but know one cares who he is. No one knows who he is even tho he can do the same stuff Tanner can. Or another example.
There was a guy, who we just call Frenchie, and at the end of the season (everyone knows the HUGE gap to flat, gap to down that Crighton hits and gaps the bottom in the Ready Fire Aim trailer) he 450ed to the down, he didnt even hit the flat...it was incredible...probably be in a movie or two next year. NO PRO EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT IT and he did it.... why arent these people getting noticed? that kinda sucks...
