looks like he initiated his spin at the cut out which is not as vertical so he ended up on the spine.

minicrops1 Taylor Gold won the Double Halfpipe... not surprised at all. Any one else notice his winning streak? He just won the Burton US Open 2 weeks ago.

the thing is, imo the key, you can't expect anyone, even superPro's, to learn this with two days of practice then strait into a televised contest. they're gonna play it safe, try to get a passable run in and take those 25 g's. if there were a doublepipe set up all season and at the summercamps for a year or two and everyone was there pushin it, then that full pottential would be met, i have no doubt...but that's probably not gonna happen
unless they make every big contest a double pipe contest, again - i doubt it.

far too much risk and way too much $$ for everyone to start building double piped spined foam pits.

gimmicky.

andrewdod Well apparently Scotty lago took a pretty bad spill in the double pipe. There's a picture on his girlfriends Instagram of him in a hospital bed in a neck brace. But he is cheesin hard in the picture so I assume he is going to be okay.
