Peetu is a beast. Kid is raking in the prizes. That's good that Ipod is able to land it, but his consistancy is questionable. SW is like a robot.

Sick. Shaun is still cleaner, but IPod should be cleaning his up real soon.

On the nervous note, I don't think Shaun has anything to worry about. Seriously, with that private pipe he had with a foam pit, I highly doubt the double mctwist is all he walked away with. That's just the one he decided to show us. His airs were just monstrous at the Olympics. He has plenty of room to do more insane shit. We'll see. Shaun White the first to land a triple cork? Maybe...

Shaun white was beaten by Danny Davis in mammoth, and Danny was just throwing double corks. Now that other riders are starting to learn his "signature" tricks that shows that the other professionals on the circuit aren't that far behind him. He has monstrous airs, but how long before someone boasts a higher air out of the pipe than him?

Shaun also focuses all his attention on the pipe, though a tough competetior he was regularly beaten in slopestyle, think he could compete with Peetu on a course or John Jackson in the backcountry?

He is a one trick pony and while he's currently the best, I think that other riders are picking up the 1260 shows that he's not leagues ahead

I think making comparisons to other concentrations of the sport is not valid. Speaking of pipe, Shaun owns it. I think he is leagues above the rest or else the rest would have came up with a new trick themselves instead of following Shaun's example. Even the double corks were much cleaner and higher from SW. The riders have some catching up to do considering half of them couldn't land the doubles in competition.

Shaun probably isn't as good in the other concentrations because he focuses so much on being the best in the pipe. He simply doesn't dedicate his time to the other styles.

I think that the simple fact that people have to compare riders to Shaun White all the time shows just how much he is above the rest. Just like Jordan. Players were and still are compared to that guy.

Another rider stomping a double mctwist doesn't mean SW should be worried. It means that SW raised the bar and the other riders are following suit. Which means again, he has progressed the sport of pipe competition.

This kind of reminds me of the Tony Hawk Christian Hosoi battles of the late 80's...

I'm interested to see how many other riders will stomp the double mctwist now. Here I am all stoked that I landed a suitcase grab and these guys are busting out insane shit like this

People use "one trick pony" a lot to put SW down. Now I don't know many comps that have multiple events (pipe, slopestyle, QP, rail jam, etc) and the winner will be the overall best. So Peetu is able to land silver in the olympic pipe, take the TTR title and ride a sick BC line...but a time will come where he will be asked to focus on one aspect in order to really shine in that domain. Whether he choose to or not is not the question, it is simply a common thing. SW chose the pipe and you're going to hold that against him? Last time I checked, you don't ask the mogul skiers to ride the GS as well.

Shaun is miles ahead of Ipod, Peetu, Danny Davis and everyone else which Shaun White haters love to point out as the new "hey check this guy out, he can do double corks too" guy.

On Danny:
Danny won the GP in Mammoth because he did something he'd NEVER done before (cab double cork, front double cork, and double backside rodeo) and THEN in Shaun's following run, Shaun didnt land his Double McTwist. Had he landed it, he still would've won: not even debatable. So your argument is basically that if Shaun White doesnt land his runs, then other people can win. LOLOL well obviously. Not to mention with Danny's broken back, it'll be a while before hes a contender again. Hope he gets well soon though

On iPod and Peetu, the only other real pipe competitors at the moment: Both awesome riders, both extremely talented, and both readily admit that Shaun is near impossible to beat. At the Olympics, Peetu said this about Shaun: "unless he falls or doesnt try to go big, he is so hard to compete against" and Ipod said this: "He is unstoppable, such a great competitive rider."(source: AP)

On slopestyle:
I agree; Shaun needs to get back into slopestyle training, because he faces some stiff competition now: Halldor Helgasson is only 17 and has frontside double cork 10s and backside double cork 12s, Eric Willet and Eero Ettala now have Double back rodeos on lock at every comp, and EVERYBODY has 1260s nowadays, so Shaun's got some work cut out for him, but he is a champ, and I would NEVER count him out for a slopestyle comeback.

Keep hating Shaun White haters, it only takes that little extra to be the best, and theres a reason that Shaun is the best and most successful competitive snowboarder ever(again, the facts and records speak for themselves). If you think you are trendy, "core" or just cool because you hate on Shaun, it just makes you a Douchebag for not recognizing someone's incredible skill and talent. I like to watch guys like Scott Stevens, Halldor Helgasson, Mason Aguirre, and Zak Hale just as much as Shaun, and for different reasons. When you want to see the most stylish jibbing, buttering, and use of features on a mountain watch Scott Stevens. When you want to see the sickest slopestyle run, watch out for Halldor Helgasson and Tyler Flanagan. But when you want to see the absolute best halfpipe rider in the world, the one who has not only invented, but perfected the tricks and runs the best guys all try to emulate now while still doing it BIGGER, BETTER, and CLEANER than any of them, tune in and watch Shaun do his magic

Tyler Flanagan really comes off as a douchebag. His videos from when he was 10-12 years old are cool...but it seems like that's when he stopped attending school and started eating retard sandwiches. Being boderline illiterate isn't cool Tyler. If I'm wrong and you actually have half a brain then I apologize. But if that is the case then your parents need to sit you down and teach you how to act in front of a camera.

If every other word that comes out of your mouth is "fuckin'", people are going to think you are stupid.

Fact.
