taut's comments caused me to feel that he is being a bit of a wanker and so i felt fine in calling him out as such.
..and that makes you what?
yes, he is entitled to his opinions but when you come on a forum and show disrespect for the accomplishments of another you put yourself in the firing line. i am all for expressing your opinion but know that there are others who are going to have an opinion of your opinion. not saying he is a bad guy or anything but sometimes it is best to keep opinions to oneself.
Yeah but if you read what I actually wrote, like has been mentioned I am not really disrespecting someones accomplishment...well maybe the guy who edited the video for not trying a new angle..new story...anything really.
I totally know it is hard to pull the trigger on that. I've tried it a few times without much success..and a few complete failures..this was back in the day...and it hurt like shit leaving me completely battered, bruised and unable to kite for days.
Coleman: That is taken out of context. Right above it I say these videos look all the same to me..then I am explaining what that the same is. I guess you could manage to read into it whatever you want, but I am not usually criticizing anyones style. I am just saying it looks the same as his last videos.
am not sure why you guys are getting so defensive about this? oh well what can you do.
Dimitri: Thanks for your analysis. Its a genius nugget of wisdom and insight to the human psyche as usual. Much appreciated.
Nikelyzian: Lenten is far from the only one who does that move. He does it very well, but most of the guys on the circuit can do that....I've seen "regular" guys on Maui pull that..and yes much more impressive in real life...most pro riders for the bigger brands I think could do it. But hey that is what I believe.
