I grew up when freeskiing was in its infancy and have been out of touch with it for a couple years due to college and work. Obviously there are a plethora of new pro's but how about the pro's the we old cats grew up with...where are they now?
Andy Woods is a coach for a summer camp in vermont. Dont know anything else tho
C-Bcut comin at ya strong
WIfreeskier: "blaze in the car ride there, hit up the ganjala."
gaberaham: "its fucking sweet but all I do is bomb groomers all day long with a big shit eating grin on my face."
Crichton has Crone's Disease (sp) and can no longer ski professionally...
"some were liek how many sides does a rhombus was i had no idea ont he cups in 5.5 gallons and what time period we are in but besides those i think im smarter thena 5th grader"
"and tom wallisch reccomended that i get it that size so shutup."
That's all the replies? Wow, I'm really bothered by this...its means that
a) Newschoolers.com has failed to inform members of freeskiing history
b) skiing will soon end up like football, where the very people that built the sport are neglected and forgotten about with respect to healthcare, retirement and recognition.
I wish that Newschoolers.com would have a complete section dedicated to the history of our sport. I'd like to see a section about the godfathers of our sport and there contributions. Background on the first models of twins and there importance, and lastly it would be great if they discussed the impact of certain media outlets such as Freeze, classic ski movies and competitions.
I was just thinking about this last night. Where do you think Tanner Hall will be in 20 years? Jon Olsson? Dumont? Schiller? Morrison? Will they still be killing it? Shredding the gnar? Or will they fall back like the late pros and do more with freeskiing companies, like designing new products? Will they have made enough money to never work again and have their own private islands?
mik d is still killin it doesnt really compete anymore cause he is to thug and to much about style over spinning or doing double flips. i believe he is supposed to have a segment in something next year. as far as not being allowed in the US i am not to sure on that i do know right around summer his girl friend got shot in the stomach or some shit and she was pregnant.
