Thanks for the link! I'll definitely watch that tonight.

This guy is off the chains right now. But with this shit he's doing, I'm not sure he's long for this world. It's fun to watch, but holy shit...

Thats just gold coming from you.

I love watching the guy ride and like Jones said he'd do, he's definitely taking big mountain riding to another level. But damn...

You gotta remember Xavier is really a mountaineer at heart. Growing up in the alps he is a lot more used to that type of terrain than we are.

No doubt about it. The guy is a beast. But the terrain choices he's making are just insane. He was damn near taken out by a HUGE avy last season. I thought he might dial it back a notch after that.

He's an absolutely amazing rider and definitely knows what he's doing, but damn he's taking some huge risks. I hope they continue to pay off for him because it's fun as hell to watch and he's taking big mountain riding to levels that haven't even been contemplated before. Jones is still a monster, but even he's starting to dial it back a little these days. He's getting some age on him and has a family to think about now.

Xavier is just on another level right now. No shame in my game saying that my snowboarding days would be over if I ever attempted that shit - and very possible my walking and/or breathing days.

You contemplate the fact of what he does as if it was a dare, or somehow dumb of him? Why compare yourPUSSYSself? Why say any of that shit? Fucking gaper.

As he sad, he would be doing this shit even if he were not being filmed.

LOL! You mad bro.

And for the record, you're the biggest gaper on this site. You troll every thread you ever post on (I just saw your post trolling on the Black Friday thread, but that's typical of you).

Why don't you start up another thread bashing alternate camber profiles again so that we can get another good laugh out of what a dumb fuck you are?

On a serious note, I'm not comparing myself to him. Guys at that level definitely analyze terrain and risk MUCH different from the rest of us. However, I don't think that makes it not worth discussing. It's fun to watch, but sometimes I wonder how big of an impact the snow film industry has on some of the bad decisions made in the backcountry by typical riders. It's worth discussing.

But, I realize full well you're not here for serious, practical discussion. You've tried that in a few threads and inevitably get your ass handed to you in a paper sack.

Jesus dude, how much are you going to read into this? Fuck, I saw nothing in his statement except envy and amazement.

For the record, a lot of the big mountain bad asses also die with their boots on. Trevor Peterson, Doug Coombs, Alex Lowe, just to name a few. Xavier is at a very, very high level. Saying you're amazed by it, and not even at his level? Isn't that what pros are supposed to do? Amaze us?

Seriously dude, you're quite bi-polar on this forum. Dial it back a bit...
