The Solid Seven will be a whenever the hell I feel like it article series detailing 7 solid, not necessarily great, skiing related topics. Whether it is 7 questions with everyone's favorite pro Jason Arens *cough* finish the damn interview *cough* (yes it's still not done yet), 7 epic BC jump shots, or the 7 gnarliest bails from the previous month, just know I'm doing you a solid.
Purveyors of style. Skiing's greatest dynamic duo. However you wish to label B-Dog & Edollo, there is no denying the impact they had on how we view style with ease.
1. Muddy Winter
"Raw i'ma give it to ya" is a good way to describe this edit. Raw style and tricks make this one of the fan favorites throughout the years of B&E.
2. Headz Up
Honestly, this is probably one of my favorites out of the entire list. Phil's part by itself would have been one of the best edits of 2014. Add in Vinni Ca$h, Henrik, PWhite, and a few other homies to round the stacked rider list and you have an edit that just oozes style.
3. Blackout Project
While this was mostly reused shots, the first ever B&E movie was a heater. Taking the best of the best from the first 3 seasons, Henrik and Phil crafted a masterpiece that would set the tone for future movies.
Always innovating, this episode saw a few new moves added to the ever growing list of tricks in the freestyle skiing world. Set to a jazzy offering from The Digable Planets, Henrik and Phil show new ways on how to ride the park.
5. The Medicine
I'm going to let B-Dog & Dollo speak for themselves for this PSA (mind you, this was from 2011, the Olympics have yet to officially include skiing): "This episode is called ''The Medicine'' because we see this movement, Inspired, as a cure to skiing's future in it's purest form. With the possible arrival of the Olympics, it might change a lot of the perception and clientele that will be brought upon the sport. The B&E squad will keep expressing their feel and way they see freeskiing throughout their episodes and hopefully spark the mind of the industry in order to support skiers that are dedicated to filming."
6. Can't Wait
Speed, style, and precision were the focus in this classic. Flowing like Method Man & Redman on a freestyle, B&E play off each other's unique styles to become one cohesive style unit.
7. On the Way Back
Technically not a tru B&E show, Henrik and brother Oscar rip around the Are snowpark while Dollo is still recovering from his knee injury. Shortly after this edit, he released the famous Welcome Back edit which I'm sure is one edit that sneaks into your top 10 all-time favorite.
There you have it, my solid 7 picks but more importantly what is your favorite B&E episode? Let me know down in the comments below.
