Snowboarders watching Airstyle?

Postby davesails7 » Sat Jan 10, 2015 5:12 pm

I don't really follow snowboarding too much, but I was watching this best of 2014/2015 video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2b5QNj-BVhs) and it's full of board offs and one footers! Have the pro snow boarders been watching Airstyle? :wink: I have to say, it takes some balls to do a one footer at high speed on a hard surface when your other foot is permanently strapped in!

Here's another torn ACL waiting to happen :o

It's nothing new. Go dig up an old snowboarding movie from the '80s like "Snowboarders in Exile" and I guarantee you'll see one or two one-footers. It's a bit of a circus trick if you ask me and a great way for a rider to wreck his knees.

No, It's influenced by skateboarding, and snowboarders have been doing it since long before "airstyle".
