In this video they show two jumps using both the POV and the 3rd person perspective (it's a total of 4 shots). When you look at the POV it gives you absolutely no sense and no perspective of what Gigi is doing. When you look at the 3rd person you go: wow, that is a sick move!

Disclaimer: I am no way comparing my little self with the great Gigi Ruf and I am explicitly stating that you would not say: "wow, what a sick move" if you saw my video clip shot from 3rd person perspective.
