Freeze started in the states. One issue one season, followed by four issues the next, preceded the unvieling of the New Canadian Air Force, which was in the first issue of the third winter of Freeze (No.1, Vol 3). Andrew Shepard (one of Freeze's original Dirty Dozen) threw the first Mute grab 360. It was off a table top and you can see it in Jon Long's and James Angrove's (RAP; Reel Action Pictures) annual release called Snow Drifters. I think it copyrighted 1995. What Shepard and all the other RAP boys were doing was just a continuation of ''Extreme'' skiing. I belive, that it was the americans, Brad Holmes, Jim Morgan, Seth Morrison, etc who started the snowball rolling for today's revolution. They were big mountain, Sqwallywood boys who took to the jumps. But it was the Canadians who took technical newschool freestyle to the next level. From then, the western Americans like Shane Anderson, CR Johnson, Tanner Hall, etc took over. Then came the East coast Yanks, then the Mad Ontarians, and now, who cares. the fact is, the ball is rolling. Go with it.
Sigs are really starting to bug me.
