Can you compare Tanner to terje?
Most sports have one person who seems to dominate, progress and develop the sport. Could you then say that what terje has done for snowboarding tanner has done for skiing? A few years ago he won everything with his switch rodeo 7 back then he was the best. And i still think he is now. In my opinion he has more style than anyone. And if he keeps on winning surley he go down in the record books as one of the greatest skiers out there.
Any one agree with me on this??
terjje is aight
but doesent he do a lot of big mountain riding too?(terje)

yah you could compare them but tanners better
ECM productions presents... 'Last Man Standing' coming end of Jan.
tanner is really fucking good there is no doubt. anyone who says otherwise is straight up hating. however he is by no means terje. first he needs to quit doing all the big comps and focus just on doing all of his tricks out of the park while skiing powder with his homies. when that happens maybe we can compare the two. doing a few crazy alaska rock lines like sage cattabriga-alosa in the new tgr movie couldnt hurt either.
tanner is more like jeremy jones...
^^ummm tanner has actually been out in the backcountry throwing his shit down for the last couple years, he's been one of the top guys pushing it in the backcountry...you shouldn't be saying he what he needs to do. I think people don't see how much effort he probably puts into it because of the amount of comps he does, and because there are people like JP Auclair and Anthony B that spend their whole winter in the backcountry, so they get more BC credit. But his riding in the BC is definetly on the same level as those guys.
but almost all of his video segments are in the park. and even tho i believe that he can kill it in the backcountry and all over the mountain until all that starts becoming a major part of his video segments most people will not realize his skills outside of the park.
some people sure haven't seen 1242
I dont think you can compare them. No dis on Tanner here at all, but Terje basically does not fall. He is unbelievably composed and has so much athleticism. Have you ever seen when he Mctwists about 15 out of some indoor quarter comp, decks it, and instead of crumpling to the bottom, he stays on his feet by frontflipping back into the pipe. It was amazing.
I guess you could say Tanner is the closest comparison though.
signatures are for pussies
yea u really cant compare snowboarding and skiing....like comparing an apple and orange
i'd say more like todd richards or peter l ine
The only tent i'm pitchin tonite is... well you get where i'm goin.... OH! (Quagmire)
Frontflips are lame
Lets hear it for fat chicks!
yea i kinda agree... but i think way more than 1 person did that to the snowboard scene... more like 5 or 6. And yea Tanner changed everything with the switch rodeo 7... but only in Big Air... Steele was doing crazy rails, JF was doing the first handrail, and last year CR and Candide just went off and changed the way the WORLD looks at skiing, especially in pipe. So yea Tanner was a huge part of it, but there were others too...
Thugged out since cub scouts.
he seems more comparable to shaun white, but only because they're both probably the only household names from SBing and skiing cuz they own the xgames

pollard has as much if not more style than tanner and is a better skier. pollard does way more big mt stuff and kills everything and is much more inovative

dont get it twisted
everyone gives props to tanner for the switch rodeo 7's. ya they were and are so sick! but no one gives props to those guys who were doing them way the hell before him. like skogen sprang and mike laroche and stuff. those guys probably pushed tanner the most during that time
HCC fo yo punk ass!
Smith, Obermeyer, and Fiji- (aint no thang)
and we could compare candide thovex with danny way...

ive heard snowboarders compare tanner with todd richards and shaun white, not terje though.
'I heard that Richard Gere gerbils. That is, he inserts gerbils into a paper towel tube, which he then sticks up his butthole. I don't doubt this, because he asked me if i wanted to come over to his house and gerbil. I insisted that he come over to MY house, since the whole thing seemed weird. As a practical joke, i attached a bucket of water to the top of the door so that when he opened it, I beat him with a mannequin leg.'-Skydaddy
you can't compare tanner to terje because terje is a GOD in the snowboard world! he's been in the spotlight and killing it since the 80's!

tanner is more jpwalker, terje is fuckin so early 90s id say maybe shane szocs or mike d are more terje and jpauclair is the peter line with invention and early progression
Im sick of this you can't compare one thing to another bullshit. Like, you can't compare skiing to snowboarding. You can fucking compare anything to anything if you fucking want. There are definited ways to compare skiing and snowboarding.

dumont is like shaun white, this season anyway.
no tanner does compare to terje
tanner hall absolutly does not compare to terje, I don't even understand how someone could think of that, terje haakonsen has done more to the sport of snowboarding than anyone else it's not even comparable. just cuz terje is an icon and that skiers are looking for an icon of there own too, there is no way to compare terje to anyone in the ski biz.
i think of him and mark frank
they both are confused
yea she got a breast reduction
thats like slapping god in the face
she had back problems dude
haha you just bumped a 3 1/2 year old thread

Im not saying pollard isnt damn good, but i feel like tanner is much more of an icon than pollard

tanner hasn't done for skiing what terje did for snowboarding. i dont think one skier changed the game the way terje did, there was a group of em. and terje these days is way past his prime.
