i think i'm man enough to admit on the internet that my dick and balls sucked up into my stomach as i scrolled down that picture..


holy..mother...of. fuck.










i really have no words for how gnarly that is. jesus fucking christ! is there any one else even coming close to this level? this is on another dimension from what even Jermey Jones is doing..

i seriously worry for XDLR tho.... i mean... come on.

I watched this yesterday. My balls snuck up inside of me a little when viewing it. Dude is just at a completely different level.

some of that stuff, like that scene near the end where he's 'sideslipping' at like 90 miles an hour...its not even snow, it just looks like windswept ice and rocks? mental...just to see a face like that and think, 'yes', is mental

makes me think of that big mountain rider from the 80's, if forget his name , Bruno? something..riding crazy tech lines with ropes and all, eventually it caught up with him...Xavier is incredible to see, but i actually hope he puts the brakes on before...something bad happens

First line I'm like that's an awesome face and I'd totally try it, then it just gets steeper and icier and rockier and then he unhooks and drops off that vertical ice face

Can't wait until I get home and watch this. Xavier is, by far, my favorite snowboarder to watch videos of. Guy is a completely different level and it makes me laugh when people compare him to Jeremy Jones.

I think I could happily give up riding forever if I was given the ability to reproduce one of his lines & survive. I don't understand why all the kids these days want to be the next big thing in the park/pipe. I'd much rather be able to ride like Xavier.
