Wow dude admit it you're just straight up jealous.
Even if you could sw 1800 super steezed out with an octograb off of a 120ft. cliff, I would still have more respect for Slandis with the great attitude and character vs. you with all the hate and "badass" attitude. (Well I dunno, a "sw 1800 super steezed out with an octograb off of a 120ft. cliff" is pretty dope I have to admit...)
But before you start ripping on me remember I'm just judging both Slandis and you on what you guys are like online and on NS, not in real life. So don't take this too personally, for all I know you could be the chillest guy in the world.
As for Landis being sponsored, I think it was a great choice for Oakley, as he is a very much respected member of NS and the skiing community, and lets face it, once you're famous on NS you're pretty much set for life; in skiing at least. I think kids are trying waay to hard to be the next Wallisch and personally, I think there's just too many of those kids now that can throw doubles and cork 7s like breakfast that it would be very hard to choose who to sponsor. You might as well put all their names in a hat and draw a couple names to sponsor each season.
You watch, in the next few years (if not months) there will be another 100 Gus Kenworthy's waiting to be sponsored. Landis on the other hand, in my opinion, was sponsored for his overall talent and attitude, not just for his skiing. Sure there are kids better than him, I'm sure there are lots, but do any of them have the talent he has, the fan base he already has without being sponsored, and the level of involvement he already has with the skiing industry?
No, the industry isn't going wack, I actually think its going the right direction; not just rewarding those who have the skills but also those who have character and bring a smile to your face. You watch, Slandis will blow up, he'll be the next big thing in skiing, and yet another name to go from blue to orange on NS.
Congrats Landis, and I'll be expecting Neon pretty soon buddy, you have no excuse now haha.
