asparagusBecause if a skater lands half rotated backside 180ing a 16 stair, they’re gonna have a sore tailbone. If a skier lands half rotated on a 40 footer it’s an edge catch to concussion, collarbone and shoulder injury. There’s a reason the average skate pro doesn’t drop a street movie with nothing but massive street rail shots. Both sports have their gnarly aspects and this thread is stupid.

BigPurpleSkiSuitwe ended up at a point where that became base jumping, that's why it changed. People went bigger than them, but past a certain point you can't land. Plus didn't we have someone this year go as big as sethmo on a backie and stomp, Tanner Bourdeau I believe
270on420outThis is how I know OP doesn’t follow skateboarding very closely. Stony low impact tricks are in right now. “Shitty on purpose” is the name of the game. And all the old timers complain about how much they hate it, and how Instagram killed video parts, and how lame all the trends are nowadays. It’s the exact same fucking conversation.
