Default yea i'm old.

It will be cool for sure. Hopefully it sets a trend. It would be so sick to have 8-12 foot double pipes in some locales instead of "you want to ride pipe? ok we have 22 footers".

You guys that don't get it, trust me, because skateboarding. Man I was a little too young and did not have any sort of access over in the Philippines for Bones Brigade 1 and 2, but The Search for Animal Chin was on all of our radar in jr high.

If you love the sports of the board do yourself a favor and waste 60 more minutes of your useless life



Tony, Steve and Lance in epic form, my first heroes.

New companies want to know about images, look no further than Powell and Peralta. Sickest gfx in boardsports, 40 years old or something.







hint: the answer to the whole post is at the end of the movie.

I graffitti'd rat bones on everything for like 10 years.

Reminds me of the sweet ramp from Skate or Die 2, one of my favorite videos games growing up. I played that game for hours, but only the halfpipe mode. I can still hear the music in my head just seeing this pic.

caught myself dreamin about this when i woke in the middle of the night, possibilities are endless. no reason crossing the spine would have to slow you down, just like any pipe air you could be clearing 20ft of pipe downhill as you cross the spine (i don't mean me literally, lol) but i bet we may see huge straight airs over the spine. weird to think about how if you take off frontside you land in the other pipe backside and vice versa. jealous you aspenites who are gonna get to try this thing if you want, damyou

The more I look at it I started noticing the spine has two places where a section of the top of the spine is cut lower making the wall less vertical, maybe these are intended transfer points as it would be much easier to do there than on the more vertical full sized parts of the pipe?

would be good if they put some of the big high rails on the spine too, like were in the Peace Pipe, a rail/transfer would be cool

The steepest angle on the spine walls will not be 90 deg, so it will act more like a regular jump or a table top. Pretty cool, only problem I see is it's VERY wide, so if you're going the full width you'll only like touch each side twice.

Should be fun to watch.

What would Terje say?!?

It's about time snowboarding got it's head out of its ass and started getting creative with features more like skateboarding. There are infinite possibilities out there and all we do is hit straight jumps and boring halfpipes. I think this is rad.

This just seems like RED BULL EPIC EXXXTREME RAWR!!!! bullshit to me.
easy, just throw a strong creative rider into it and he will show you. It's no more baffling then airing out and coming back in, you just air out differently.

Exactly. Go watch some vert and bowl skating and watch how they transfer all over the place, it's completely doable.
