Style is huge to make a trick or even riding look good. The more style you have the more effortless your riding looks. I don't care what tricks you do or what terrain you ride. If you ride without style you look like shit.

My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite
independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

i def think style is important. When you can ride without thinking about what your doing and just respond to the terrain you are sytlin. I also try not to look like a dork to bad. That is getting harder with age. lol.

Yeah, I was thinking about a way to define good style and that is defenitly it. The ability to make everything look smooth and a lot easier than it actually is.

i think of style as making everything look easy and all when the rider looks like he wants to be doing the trick

you see some people who do whatever it is they are doing so fast it looks like they are scared and to me that looks bad

Don't worry about it. It takes time to become comfortable enough that you can add style to a trick.

I agree, he goes the biggest of all snowboarders and tries the most difficult tricks but his style is aweful to watch. His arms are flailing on 720's. I think bad style is something he'll always have.

Yeah, I agree. However, he throws such ridiculous tricks that it's almost as if it really doesn't matter. Sure I'd rather watch MFM pull a front 3, but Travis is defenitly progressing our sport.
