Do you hate vert?
Maybe it is just me, i like my vert in the pipe and thats about it.
We used to have tons of table tops and massive kickers that you could get a SERIOUS amount of air off of.
Now, its like they are pressed for space or something and build all of these jumps with knuckles and verts that launch your board over your waistline.
Why is this becoming the standard in snowboarding? I really don't understand it. sometimes you are going down a black slope directly into this nasty lip, personally i find it hard to spin off jumps like these.
I dont want to be off axis in the air, and the more extreme the vert the less likely i am to hop flat into the air.
to be honest I dont much enjoy , especially the small ones with huge verts, ive cleared a few landings recently and have had to nose dive to avoid breaking a leg.
im used to popping off lips and these feel more like absorbers to me.. hate absorbing...
