Holy mother of snowboard triples
So many triples have gone down in snowboarding, its insane! Looks like a few dudes got to hit the JOI jump, he had room to go for quad, lol.
More that are not in the above video:
If only FIS built their jump like SPT does for xgames...
Diversity stole my bike
i keep in shape by eating a lot of pussy and pushing kids off their bikes. -*TACO-DOG*
well according to bill pullman, today the world celebrates its independence day, free of the tyranny of intergalactic squid monsters. god bless you will smith and jeff goldblum. god bless you. -Anathema$
but... they don't look cool.. at all.. they just look so damn hucked.
all i want is bitches, big booty bitches
This. As impressive as the triples done by McMorris and Horgmo are, most of them just look goofy as fuck.
Not to mention half of those riders seem as though they can't even snowboard. Yeah, they've got it in the air, but having been a snowboard instructor for 6 years, some of those guys look gaper as fuck when they're on snow.

some of those trips are sick and i really like them, but i feel like 80% of the trips they do are just super wobbley and not like a real triple. A triple cork on skis just seems 10x more dangerous/gnarly than the average snowboard trip cork
true, if you compare sammy carlson's or henrik's triple to some of the triples in those videoes, skiing triples look 100x better
lol in the first video at 4:26 the guy does a trip with no helmet

Yes, because the best way to judge how good someone is at riding is to watch shots of the GOING STRAIGHT INTO A FUCKING JUMP.
I feel so fucking sorry for every kid you "taught" how to snowboard...
I also feel sorry for the idiot children who think skiing's trips look better than snowboarding's. What the fuck is wrong with you idiots? All triples are ugly as fuck.
Skiierman is a cash-rabid cyborg forged in the fires of Mt. Doom and hell-bent on destroying the human race
pros follow skiierman around
Skierman is the truth
if skierman dosent know him then he cant be that famous
Skiierman's dirty little secret is that he is the iota of truth.
would rather be watching russ tripple
So many backside trip 14s... Ridiculous.
When people first started doing them I thought they looked way sicker than anything on skis but now everybody does them the exact same and it got old really fast. Would be nice to see some more variation like that front triple off the toes, shit was so ca$h
If you're feelin it... Nose butt trip.
even snowboarding aint got that shit
Not saying its not awesome. But I agree with most of the above posts in that it just looks way less cool. I think maybe partially because they cant cross anything? They have barely any variation in grabs ccompared to us
What it is.
when was that triple thrown at MSLM?
Killa Beez we on da swarm
Ya get spinnin, YA GET PAAID!
The first triple was cool the rest I'd much rather watch grass grow.
Filmers Are Always Ready... Droppin.
Why does Jimmie ski without poles?
His arms were blown off in 9/11
Wait are we talking about tripples?
"If i open the window of my room will the altitude get in?"
"Careful theres a rail after that jump!"
...release lever was in upright position.
I cant even double

fuck off with that shit
can't believe i'm saying this, but i think skiierman is the only person in this thread who i actually agree with
"Straight lining takes no skill" - pussies
Somebody doesn't have a dad.
no one in this thread throws triples. so regardless of what they look like, we all dont have the balls to huck em, how can you judge them then?
For all your graphic design needs:
lol skiierman is a little bitch. Gets way to pissed off over the internet. get a god damn life

So literally what you're saying here is that triples take little to no prior snowboarding experience. I hopw you realize that before you triple you have to double (not necessarily but you get the point), before you double you have to single, and for many people even doing a single flip takes a couple years to learn. I highly doubt these people in the video are "gaper as fuck" unless they learned how to triple over the course of one season
Generally seems like snowboarders can flip faster than skiers, so that is probably part of it...
I honestly don't believe that's true, i feel like skiers have more options when it comes to progression, where snowboarders really don't have a huge variety of grabs so they just huck themselves. The only snowboarder that really progresses in terms of cool grabs is halldor with his lobster flip.
Trip/dub frontside rodeos look so sick
