I find big air freestyle boring. In figure skating it was amazing when they started doing quad spins, freestyle is figure skating with a board. Can I do any of it? HELL NO! But is it fun to watch? For me? No.
Urban style riding, rail slides, all that kinda "creative" stuff I also find boring as hell. Maybe because I didn't grow up a skater. I just don't see the draw to it.
My favorite type of "trick" is some technical line and hitting a cliff/rock with style. A little grab here or there, make it look like fun! 1080s don't look like fun to me...
you seriously don't know what you're missing out on
Trust me, I wish I could. 36 y/o I don't think I'll ever do the jumps like the one that broke Scotty Lago's jaw. Just don't see it happening without being pro and a crew.
I'd love to do a guided backcountry or even slackcountry tour (know any in Mammoth?) but those huge straight down pillows and gigantic back country jumps aren't happening in my life. The skill isn't even close to being there.
The small stuff sure. I'm talking the huge Alaskan lines and continent sized jumps. Just being realistic.
