as hard as they work, as impressive as it is, personally i don't think slopstyle is quite ready for primetime, as everyone knows the decision to put it in the olympics was mostly driven by ratings and money

i just don't think it has that lasting power to be in there for years and years, like halfpipe. the tide of public opinion is quicky turning against the the 12's 14's and style-free tricks, as if it's not watched, and not to the public taste it will be gone. just look at slalom, gs, and downhill

costas, jaskass and all that noise: slopestyle on toilets or shopping carts! that i would pay to see

Agreed and all of them are huge douche bags in real life.

Snowboarding is JUST supposed to be fun and then progression.... as soon as it became 'a sport' all the fucktards' came out of the woodwork........
I never liked Costas' haircut either.

Who cares. Didn't they have dumb comments when snowboarding first came on the scene? Since when has this ever affected the boarding community, they did their own thing. No need to over dramatize this, fuck him he can say what he wants.

I agree with this also... obviously having sloepstyle in the Olympics is a step in the right direction in terms of mainstream acceptance of the sport but I also don't think it's exciting enough to keep the average viewer watching. They would have been better served doing a big air or quarter pipe type of competition as at least that will get people who know nothing excited about what they're doing. In slopestyle it will be essentially the same groups of tricks by all the riders just executed to different levels of perfection.
