so all the pros cheat when they hit a water ramp?
i know that some badass hardcore skier will come up in this thread and state that it is cheating. but we have those airbag thingys at my mountain, and i used it this year on like every 2/3 laps. what can i say, i learned lincolns, fronts, cork7s, misty 7s and even octos that way.
maybe a foam pit is safer than that, but for airbags, you can still come too far to one side and hit the ground pretty hard, overshoot it (a buddy almost broke his spine that way, well he actually broke it, but hes not paralyzed), or you can land in some awkward stance than can twist your knees since the carpet has pretty good friction...
i didnt hurt myself all season (using an airbag/learning some new tricks), so even it was cheating, i would still do it...
i know Jon's taken alot of shit about using water ramps
i think the main hate generator is that very few people have access to foam or water ramps and it can come off as an unfair advantage. kind of comperable to kids who can afford COC or Windells versus kids who have to hit pvc rails on turf all summer
