Plain and simple if it's in the park you ride it. Pipe teaches you better edge to edge control and how to maintain speed. You can learn the basics in a day which includes airing out and spinning.
and on day two he created the sun, the moon, the earth, and the stars?
Day 1 airing out and spinning? Come on. Maybe if you rode for 5 years and then suddenly said Uh, theres a halfpipe there...Ima give that a shot.
Riding up the walls of a pipe are definitely different than carving side to side on a groomer.
Getting the balls to go 22' up the side, come down with an alarming increase in speed only to go back up and do it again
then to air
and THEN to spin?
yea I'm going to say that 99.999999999999999999% of the people on here would never do pipe the first day and air/spin. Never. Never happened sorry. Unless the pipe is a kids park pipe then maybe yea. But that doesnt count.
