yanno, that was sick, but snowboard videos just dont impress me anymore. i feel like theres beginning to be a lot more creativity in skiing than in boarding now, and the urban in skiing is getting better, which is always where i saw a huge difference, i mean look at the wall ride tanner did in the massive preview
check out jeremy jones's part in picture this. sweet movie all around (and i think if you watch it it might change your perspective on some of the creativity aspects that you said snowboarding doesnt have). anyways, jeremy Jones (i think its him, im not too up on snowboarders) does an ILL wall flip sort of thing that, IMO, is way cooler than tanners because he launches off one wall and lands on a different wall that is perpendicular to the one he launched off of.
Because this is the only site on the internet like this, all snowboarding forums suck. Not to mention I enjoy watching skiing anyway, even though I snowboard. But as far as progression goes, were not light years ahead of you, but we are ahead in creativity, urbans and sliding things in general. But you guys are way ahead in the air and always will be because you have 2 seperated feet. You guys can def throw some crazy grabs that we have nothing on. But the main reason im on here is to watch videos, weather its skiing or snowboarding I can appreciate what is thrown down in both sets of videos
sorry for the double, just going to clarify a few things so this doesn't start some crazy hate. As far as creativity goes, what I'm talking about the kind of stuff scott stevens does, little crazy things. I'd say for the most part were pretty much on the same page progression wise, except a lot of skiing is big spins, which will tone down eventually. Not that I don't like big spins is just that seeing them all the time gets annoying, its nice to have some variety. 4bi9 is a good example of where things should start to go, they know whats up
i think it would be foolish to believe skiers did them first.
also, people probably dont see boarders do them much, because they aren't so one-dimensional of a community to completely embrace and flesh out every combo of any given new trick in a few months. trends in skiing completely dwarf trends in any other sport.
the hand drag trick done in both vids is technically a miller flip. you don't really hear that term much, but its an inverted front three handplant while moving forward. it was taken from skateboarding years ago. people do them backside occasionally too. but you can feel proud for the term "hand drag"
