ClearsRandomWitnessed the Candide Invitational 2007 at La Clusaz. When Candide was hitting the step up everybody was sitting down. He was taking speed switch straight bomb whole mountain. When I looked at Big Bertha (jump where he crashed) from the chair-lift, first tought thats just a giant ice sculputure of La Clusaz sign, but wait - it was f'kn giant jump, even too big for Candide. But he tried. Imagine if he did that. And recovery after the crash? And then freeride domination? Above human possibilites.
Nobody can touch Candide, his style, his heart and skiing. Candide for president!
This guy knows what's up!' If God skied he would try ski like Candide and probably fail.. I'm a very good skier.(claim but it's true just in reference to knowing what's up) . I know many many very good big pro skiers and when I watch Candide it's super human every single fucking time .. Also I hear rumours from his filmers that he has hours and hours of unreleased footage he will never let anyone see becasue the style isn't perfect or a hand drag here or blah blah.. I want to see a Candide /Travis Colab movie.. Or another proper movie from him.. I don't mean to be a dick sucker in anyway shape or form.. Candide just truly blows my brain away every single time I watch him ski and its infatheramably amazing how fast and hard he skis.. If you don't understand how much better he is than everyone else then you crazy...
Here would be the best test in my brain if we edited every single skiers best video parts together would they stack up to candides one (his would be 2 hours long if non stop hammer after hammer after hammer)
Ask Skye Dardain (candides American right hand man) about how amazing Candide is..the only guy who got close to this level Was CR Johnson pre head injury.. He was starting to touch Candide and then he got hurt .. Since then the only 3 guys catching him would be tanner, Sean p and maybe Sammy and then Parker white coming up behind (he doesn't have the tech big mountain skills though to win a FWT crown maybe one day jut not yet)
So I put a call out to any one with spare time and video editing skills .. Out together a Candide best off all time edit.. And then drop it for the world to remember that it has a God that skis amongst us.. He truly is on another level and I just rewatched all the rastafarides and even those are amazing (especially French toast)
