Man, that Big Air contest looked like an excellent way to tenderise yourself.

Was 18 min of guys hucking their bodies into tricks that weren't quite dialled yet, then eating it and getting back up to huck themselves off the jump again. They're definitely feeling that tomorrow.

That said, that switch back triple cork from Torstein was kinda crazy.

I just hope McMorris still has the triples dialed in for tomorrow.
While he was wrecking off a 100(?not sure?) kicker Shaun was in an ice bath, litterally, !

I'm starting to think Shaun White kicked your dog or something. You have way too much hate and obsession with that guy.

Sandbech has to feel like a fucking idiot. Tried to sit out the final round like a boss thinking he had the thing on lock and ended up in 3rd after the last two jumps.

No. I just feel that a REAL snowboarder gets what he deserves by winning. And is it just me or am I the only one guessing that he's a jerk because pretty much none of the riders like him or talk to him.

And it's not like I've made threads saying I hope he wrecks and loses, I'm just not as big a fan as him as I am with other riders that are all stoked after they stomp a triple cork, is it okay with you that I don't cheer for everyone?

And plus where did i say anything bad about Shaun in that post? All's I was saying was that it's pretty crazy that after wrecking off that huge kicker alot of times that in 14 hours there's no way he's not gonna be sore at all and I was actually kinda thinking it was funny that Shaun was in an ice bath when Mark was hucking himself off a massive kicker.

What do you want him to do? He pulled his 2 biggest jumps and had already sent it for 18 min.

FYI, 18 min is a really long time to be hucking yourself off a big air jump repeatedly.

Go send yourself off a huge icy jump and crash repeatedly for 18 min and see how keen you are to keep doing it. It's easy to sit at home and judge until you realize the toll those crashes take on you.

Haha yeah I know right, but he still seemed stoked for Torstein and McMorris!
I feel kinda bad for Urlik, he got 1% of fan votes and wrecked like everytime, but hey, getting in the finals in Big Air at the X-Games is still amazing!

No you don't start the thread, you just find a way to bring up how much you hate Shaun White and hope he wrecks in almost every single post you make in an X-Games thread.

I quote directly from the Superpipe thread: "I hope shaun wrecks <followed by a stupid amount of smilies>"

Please don't become that annoying 14 year old kid on the mountain who has to go a crazy rant about 'Shaun White killing babies and eating their souls' every time the topic comes up.

Go snowboarding and have fun instead of buying into the hate/hype that every other kid ends up doing.

It would have been nice to see more tail/nose grab tricks in the finals. I didnt see the whole thing but I cant recall any.

Torstein and McMo really wanted it bad on their last hits, it was a good ending.
