Sup Flash! Yeeeyaaa Hey several kickass riders out there doin da oldskool thang. Obviously the grandmaster flash with his HUGE air. Other guys like Daniel anderson doing some wicked rotating inverted deadman boardpasses (as seen in stance 2004 - NZ footage - at the end).

Gotta admit out my way oldskool isn't that popular as the winds are often pretty crap so prancing around doing handlepasses 1 foot off the water makes better use of the conditions. However if a drive 70km to a wicked spot north of the harbour bridge i can get me a 25 knots SW nice and solid and sky it up.. nothing beats the feeling. Especially with the bow kites with all that depower and ease of jumping.

Adam Koch all the way!

He seemed to be everywhere promoting the sport, and then just vanished off the face of the earth. Does anyone know what happened to him?

I do not know what you call his style but to me Chasta especially on snow. Peaceful, graceful and so fucking huge it absolutely blows my mind. How he can spot and stick the landing from those heights after flying the kind of distances is a mystery to me. No one else can match him. I like the same style on the water too but everything looks ten times smaller compared to snow.
