Kite everyday with a pom (now an Aussie citizen) and he would agree with you on both accounts.


:D :D


Must admit you aren't going to see me flap my arms etc, except if taking the piss (have you considered some of Toby's moves are just a bit of a laugh) but there's a ton of moves Toby pulls off I'd give my left arm to be able to pull off (oops bad use of words there... :D ).

Depends on what mood your are in, sometimes you want to just get that board off rotate and do stuff...sometimes I want to jump and power loop (but don't have the skill all balls to take the damn board off!).

Hey Tom may not use a handle but that doesn't define powered big air...why not, some great moves to be had with a handle, powered (aggressive big air or non powered (not as aggressive).

Jesus walks are sooo much fun....(not that you need a handle, just thought I'd add that in..lol)

That is his personal taste. But because of that he will never be able to pull the tricks I do.
And the tricks he does I do with the grab rails as well.

not only sounds like a Ron Burgundy line but also illustrates the point i was making...

people taking Tom Hebert's performance in kota is some sort of victory for 'airstyle' when the dude himself makes it pretty clear he's not a fan of board handles...

and therefore presumably has no pressing desire to wedge his foot in one / twizzle one round like a cheerleader / or hold one out while doing a pointy-toe splits, finger-point power-combo...

I am just pointing out the technical issue, which you will never discover ;-)

Whatever people like it or not, it is their problem!

And a hardcore handle pass dude will never like board offs, no matter how!

I get the crowd cheering, and that makes me smile over stupid comments...I am 42 and have a great time while pushing the limits.

Winds look awesome for tomorrow on San Andres Island, and I plan to land a new trick Tom will never land without a handle ;-)

:remybussi:
