I agree with you guys. You have style when everything you do looks so effortless.
That's why I`m not so big fan of T Rice and his moving arms. p.e. Park City is in my opinion better a much more enjoyable movie to watch than that That's it that's all.

Torstein Horgmo putting a switch 12 down is so amazing to watch. Another piece of art was Mikael Bang's back 5 rodeo stalefish at the X-games slopestyle! I can watch this move over and over, it looks so easy if he does it.

Mikkel Bang is the defenition of style. That's why I always get pissed when he doesn't win a contest. He might not have pulled back to back 10's and a 12 like shaun, but he sure as hell makes a 5 look alot better than any of the other riders.

It does to me. Any trick looks much better when it's smooth and natural. Even a simple trick looks weak if you can tell that they were trying too hard and barely pulled it off.
