Dude should make his money while he can! Not a long career in the PKRA.
Why do you think that? Lets just hope racing is not the only future for the sport then... wouldn´t be the coolest image...
BTW, does anyone else think its funny the reason Youri rides for Best now is because they paid him a shit ton of money. NOT because of how good the kites were?
I don´t... I know for sure he loved the kite before they talked numbers
And who wouldn´t??? The GP is siiiiick!!!!
But I bet they payed him a nice amount of course - he´s the best there is for the moment so he should get payed!
They have some other crazy riders comming over this year as well, so he´s not the only one... Rumors says the most technical and wildest one on snow soon as well...
Firstly, no one has scored a board off since 2003!
You don´t like boardoffs sure, but they can be harder than a handlepass
And a lot of people not knowing the sport gets more impressed by a huge jump with a boardoff than a quick fancy rotation with a pass. So style is still a bit relative. (But yes i agree boots adds style for a lot of riders)
But have you seen Youri (since he´s the topic here) pull of his insane megaloop onefooters?
Pritty sick move and can´t be done in boots... just saying
