Default Anyon else suffer through Red Bull Snowscrapers in NYC?

Red Bull Snowscrapers comp: Taking the sport of snowboarding back to 1990.

I think the winner won with a back 9.

THe ramp was too short. No speed and it looked like it sucked.

THe announcers made it that much more painful.

It was broadcast live on go2(he)

I think it was alright, decent speed for a middle size kicker on a slope, pulling 900's and rodeos, good enough, could of been far worst. The flat portion of that jump killed them, don't know why they didn't go downhill then curve it right up to the launch pad, that would of been far better. I think they wanted to make it stable enough so they didn't have to get huge air and clear a gap where if they messed up, it would be real bad.

And no I wasn't there, saw it via the streaming feed.
Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.

Screw being normal

I think it was pretty sick. The ramp could have been better but for all its worth, I had fun. Snapped a lot of good photos.

The cold didnt really bother me at all.

Kudos for T.rice though, he was putting up nice tricks all night.

The flat just ruined it... and the height of the spine in comparison to the height of the lip made the airs look weak when standing on the ground. Not to mention how brutally cold it was out there and the incessant noise coming from those bumbling idiot announcers...

I suffered through it all to the end and was heavily rewarded. Pics with T-Rice and Pat Moore! (Will put up later)

Although, part of my big toe is still numb from the cold; I've been keeping it warm with foot warmers and water, but no dice. It feels like someone shot it up with Novacaine. If it's not better by tomorrow, I'm going to have to go see a doc about frostbite. Good thing I wasn't planning on riding this weekend anyway (heatwave).

The setup of the jump was not good at all, I'll admit. All the riders kept fucking up on the landings - they just couldn't get enough air and speed.

I was there and thank God that we had a heated Motor home otherwise frostbite could have been an issue. (hope you're OK Snowbun!)

Terje one footing it was the highlight for me.

I think it was pretty cool. Of course it could have been better but for a first year it was pretty cool. I liked the setup. I'm tired of seeing the same ramp >> kicker >> gap >> landing. It was good to see the boarders just out there having fun, slingshotted out the take off lol. I'm sure they'll improve on it in the future. I just hope they continue doing this.

It was cool that they had something like this in New York, though I agree that the flat killed the jump. I had a good time, though my feet went numb after 2 hours and had to leave - I'd rather keep my toes than see the finals.
