    Hopefully this guy gets some more recognition as one of the better freeskiers on the planet in a crowded field. Am I off base thinking he kind of flies under the radar? Major freaking ripper

    endorses one of the biggest ski manufacturers out there for the past decade or so, and one of the bigger eyewear companies in extreme sports. I think he's pretty well known, but like you said its a crowded field, filled with a lot of rippers.

    I liked reading the comments and seeing a pro skier take issue with the landed cleanly claim hahaha

    I loved watching him throw massive backies off every venue on the freeskiing tour back in 2008 . Daiek is ridiculously good.

    There's nothing better than sliding down snow... flying through the air.

    That’s enough hang time to do a quad if he wanted. Gnarly.

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    daiek is a fucking cartoon. theres a pretty gnarly line in the eastern sierra that rarely fills in to the top and is one that 99.9% of people cautiously make their way down it, ski mountaineering stylee. last year it filled in.......enough for him to air into the 45/50 degree tight couloir and just slay it in a few turns. dood is a gamechanger that walks that fine line with style and humble grace.

    I'm pretty sure his balls had nothing to do with it.

    His instagram account is a really fun follow, he puts out some fun, quick pov edits of just maching down big, back country descents. I love his style.

    On a side note, when I first saw the road gap clip I recognized the hugeness and rad achievement of this jump but I also had a realization that I've been so desensitized to this stuff from being inundated daily by social media over the years. I mean, nothing really awes me any longer. I suppose this could just be my age and overall cynicism. Sorry if I'm being a wet blanket here but it was a kind of weird realization.
    dirtbag, not a dentist
