    He skis better than me

    I wouldn’t be surprised to hear he has more total ski days than me in his short time so far on earth

    he is the son of the tgr founders but regardless he rips FKNA!
    sometimes smaller kids can rip but they look like they're getting bounced around, whereas he is charging it all

    Dave the Wave and Captain Benny at the Knotty Pine. Kai likely has a patch.

    He hits, spacewalk, AltaZ, breakneck?, Once, Fat Bastages and a variety of local test pieces.

    Kid rips. Lots of natural talent. Man what a way to grow up. Skiing one of the best resort around with the top athletes in the game as your mentors. Very interested to see his progression and what it looks like once he’s in his early to mid twenties.

    Seems like the perfect storm of a kid with the desire and natural talent and parents with the means to make it happen. Amazing way to grow up.

    Meh, face shots are easy when you’re only 5 feet tall.

    No Break Neck. Spacewalk was Zero G. Most of those lines were some of my favorites from the early 2000's.

    I can tell ya the story on that particular line of the Fat Bastard cliffs being renamed "Smart Bastard" if anyone cares to hear about it.

    11-Year-Old Skis at Jackson Hole (TGR footage)

    Kai featured first time in TGR film Far Out.
    (That clip is from the movie)
    Total mag material.
    Can’t wait to see how far he can go.
    Without making his mom scared.

    Would be cool to see a Kai Jones + Henry Sildaru (who followed Candide in a segment for Faction’s This is Home) film segment. Insane rippers both and roughly the same age.

    I lounge corrected. the rock in zero.

    Me too, in the 90's. Can you tell how much I put into names of lines?

    I'm lucky to remember what day it is come winter.



    Yeah The Kid def lives in the skier perfect storm. Last year he was about 4 feet tall. A talker and a walker. Genetics. And I bet his mom is not unused to risky family moments. prolly uncomfy though.

    Funny about the Mom commentary. My motivation for the absolutely toughest turns I make, is my mother. I tell myself she's down there, broken and only I can save her. Shit gets easier.
