Its the age old argument, style. Steve Stepp's most recent series of trollin' has brought to mind this question, which style is best? I'm not necessarily talking about skinny, baggy or punk. I'm talking about the execution and what the tricks are. For example in my opinion Candide Thovex's D-Spin 720 (cork 7 to you and me) over Chads gap or his huge switch 180 over Big Bertha were two of the most stylish things ever done on skis. Don't get me wrong dub 12s and triple 14s are insane and look cool but I just feel its getting to a stage of spin to win, do you not think the sport should take a step back to the early 2000s? I mean how many times have you seen a dub 12 with an insanely tweaked out mute or stale? Lets oppose this with JP or Candides tricks. Exactly.
Also I like all style of skiing such as smooth buttery tricks from skiers like Henrik and The Bunch, but I cant decide whether I like this more than the fast jittery shiftie styles of Drexler and Max Hill. Just give us your opinion in the poll I will leave below. Also message me if you want more options in the poll.
The options I have several options in the poll.
Fast and jittery= Cole Drexler/Max Hill
Smooth and Buttery= Henrik/B-Dog
Maximum Spins over any jump.
Big Jumps Minimal spins.
