This comp season has been a crazy one, what with triples getting thrown in to the mix, the Olympics and double backies galore... but i have to say the biggest names i've heard out there have been mostly Jesper's, Oscar Wester's and V-Cash having a great season winning all these euro-comps.
Now just a couple years ago, jesper was just the crazy wiz kid throwing sw early nose dub frontflips, and Jacob, not Oscar (Charles is a little further back). I love that these guys are making a name for themselves, and it's so sick to see. But what happen to all the other riders who used to slay JOI?
I just feel like the game changed overnight. It used to be all about superman double frontflips and who had the best looking dub 10. And now with these new tricks comes a new breed of skiers i guess. Now don't get me wrong, i know everyone is still out there slaying it, but i find myself looking at the FIS rankings and wondering who half those people are... I guess i know who skiers are through edits and movies, and less through comps. That said, i have yet to see Fabian Boesch or Oscar Wester in a random sick edit or any big jib flicks out there.
Not really a rant, just wanted to know if anyone else misses the good old, second gen ski days...
