The 1 thing you saw which made you fall in love with this sport
I just watched 1242 for the fucks knows how many'th time.
watched tanners seggy in total awe as i always do. but when i see that first left-side cork 3, it always becomes a real nostalgic moment for me.
so, so smooth. he barely moves a muscle. landing so easily, so corked. that is what this sport is about to me, and i will always look back on that one trick as the reason i fell in love with skiing i rekon
holy fuck. when i read the title, the 1st thing that popped into my head was session 1242.
that movie is what got me hooked on this sport
the first time i saw seth morrison ski
13. I put the snowboard back in the garage and put my skis back on.
1242 in general did it for me, but pep's opening shot with the huge 720 was cupids arow
if ever a seggy would make my cock throb, this would probably be it, alongside tanner in the same movie
13, and Los Alamos were the first movies I saw. Put I would say Propaganda really got me looking into how badass it is. Jons Segment in it is too good, and JF absolutely slayed.
id already skid for a while, but once i watched warren millers storm at age 12 i was hooked
my friend joss got me into it and watching PC tv every morning watching the locals that i knew going pro and putting together sick seggs got me wanting to ski a lot. What pushed me was everyone makin fun of me and stuff for hitting small jumps and that made me push myself into doing bigger things.
i started skiing wen i was 1(my dad lived in denver, its born into you)but i wasnt serious about it till i was like 4. i did racing, NASTAR all american racer camp and shit like that till i was 11. then i boarded for about 3 years, got good, but didnt like it as much
then, rite about wen i decided i was gonna go back to my beloved sport(all mountain with some racing and stuff), a good friend of mine introduced me to freeskiing, and even by word of mouth(and watching him work his magic) i decided it was for me
this person was -armada_1242-. yes, he is awesome(you owe me, pete)
high society. it was a year after i bought my first twins, but i still sucked on them.
made me think anything was possible.
johnny moseley's 360 mute. i had never thought about doing an iron cross grab and a 360 at the same time. after that i started renting warren miller movies from the video store just to watch whatever freestyle skiing they would put in them.
i saw this picture of philou doing a mute grab a long time ago in SKI magazine. that's what made me buy twintips.
Replace Los Alamos with Area 51 and this is me as well.
Back way back when I was in Kimberly and Trennon Payton was on a chairlift with me telling about this movie '13' that he was in. I couldn't find it in town so I ordered it along with Degenerates. The seg with Philou, Trennon, & Cusson basically convinced me that this was more than just a fad or a desperate attempt to keep a sport alive.
eric pollards segment for his ski's where he does this wicked buttered out nose press on a box
hahahhaaha the same thing happened to me, and then I was about to make a post extremely similar to yours then I saw this. 1242 is simply a m a z i n g.
cr johnson in ski movie 3. i bought that movie and must have rewatched it over and over again.
ive been skiing since i was 3. theres 500 reasons why i love skiing.
cr's bio 10s
I've been skiing since I was old enough to stand independantly, but i fell in love with freeskiing the first time I was skiing around at some random mountain and I saw some guy slide a rail, I just never even thought about that before that moment, it opened up this whole new side of skiing that we all enjoy so much
the first rail shot in 13, i was dialed from there on.
Id say the JOI in Yeah Dude topped it for me
Seth Morrison and Tanner in Ski Movie 3. My second favorite movie to date, right behind Idea.
Watching snow slide under my skis.
i got my first skis when i was 18 months old, but i got into park after i saw a guy boosting the pipe so huge and i was like i wanna try that!
it was basically this huge 180 from jp auclair in session 1242 and pep's part and also jon ollson is sick.
warren miller. Then I randomly found this site, and I started to get really into it.
I've skied since I was 4, but I was thinking about trying snowboarding then I saw Ski Movie. Seth's segment blew my mind w/ how big he went. I got the original 1080's & then it was Propaganda that I started to really think about tricks and style.
My dad used to take us to the warren miller movies when they would come around to local schools. That was enough for me, but I just like being outside.
Probably growing up spending my summers in the ski shop, waiting for snow to come...
also, the day i switched back from snowblading(who hasnt?) to real skis.
and then again when i saw ski movie 3, kinda a shitty flick, but it was my first one so it gabe me a good look into the ski culture.
Blizzard of Auuuggghhhhhssssss - but i am kinda old
haha same here plus i got that multi colored hat for christams that year.
when I saw evan raps and skogens part in ski movie by MSP. and anything McConkey does, duh.
i was allready hooked, but something about the teaser from wski 106... so bad yet sooooooo good
ski movie 1 and propaganda.
i loved doing jumps and rails at my mountain, but i never knew there was a sport about it, then someone on my home mountains website told me about newschoolers.com
all i did was watch videos for a year, then made an account, and bought twintips
i already loved skiing..but i think it was when...skiin moguls..ALONG time ago...i was like..wow
This will date me, but my parents took me to see Warren Miller's Steep and Deep when I was really young - just before my second season on skis. Scot Schmidt warped my understanding of what skiing was at a very early age.
when i was in middle school and i saw the high school kids doing "helicopters" off the moguls at our hill's only double black
propaganda got me out of racing, but in the east coast the only thing to do are race and ride park.
propaganda was amazing.....me and my little brother had it memorized to the point where a song from it would come on the radio and we would start naming off skiiers and tricks that would got with the song....our parents wanted to kill us
I have been skiing since i was about 3, or maybe 4. I didn't need a turning moment, i liked it from the start.
segments from movies on rsn extreme scene mainly high five and watching dudes in the park with old ar5s and tm when i was young
All times are Eastern (-4)
