You're F'n kidding right?

Kid is blindingly fast and getting ripped across the water with Ridiculous power.
That's style buddy,
Pity to all the other riders but their F'n boss just showed up and told em how it's DONE!

It's not the north american do a low skill trick do it in boots, add a grab then claim it's "stylish"
Or nose press a slider the way any 13 year old in a snowboard park can.
It's high amplitude, high powered, high speed, high skill, hard earned, welcome to the hurt locker style.

Same shit that makes Dre's autofocus so awesome to watch, it's the damn speed and power he hits that stuff with.

Best kiteboarding i've seen in a LONG time, Hadlow the only guy I've ever seen move that fast and Youri the only guy I've seen throw hammers with that kinda speed and power.

I love good kiteboarding so post up some vids of what you think is stylish by comparison!

From that Vid I can see his ability but agree that it lacks fluid style. Its Like watching a younger Alex Pastor rather than a young Mark Jacobs, IMHO.

bitch at me all you want.

I agree technically amazing, I appreciate how hard the tricks are to do and how fast he is spinning but I wouldn't watch the vid twice.

I have an opinion on his style and how enjoyable it is to watch, you have an opinion on me talking shit.

I am not complaining about that.

c´mon

even if i agree that Mário clip is not the most visual thrilling thing around showing Dre hitting sliders and kickers in a edited video is not really apples with apples

in all honesty don´t think any video would be fair to Mário, except if someone got some raw footage from Youri/others out of a iphone. or the PKRA footage where the kid beat Jacobs and Pastor

With how the PKRA is judged, no. If it was based on style, yes.

btw, I think I am misunderstood.

I am not saying in ANY way the standard of his riding is anything other than astonishingly technical and extremely hard. He is powered, faster than anyone I can think of and for the PRKA about as high a standard of technical riding as you can get.

I am however saying that I find the way he is riding from an aesthetic point of view for me personally, boring.

I fully appreciate modern freestyle and enjoy watching Jacobs, Hadlow et al but I think the kid is winning on technical tricks, if it was based on style I don't think he would win.

Jayzus, can't a man have an opinion! I am not harshing any of you out for thinking it looks good!
