    I kept waiting for one of those ballers to say fuck this and knuckle drag off the big one.

    Pffft. Hoping. Maybe next year. There's only one winner, what do you have to lose? It was right there in the center, not roped off.

    Yeah, you’re right. It’s been a junk show for a long time now.

    When your main sponsor is Great Clips, you're pretty much done.

    Yeah but caddy day was only from 1:00pm to 1:15pm

    And it had naked titties

    Except Harlaut crashed and lost a chance at the gold medal...

    But it was a rad trick if he had stuck it.

    That video isn't from the knuckle huck - it looked like he won gold in that comp.

    I'm assuming he didn't win gold at knuckle huck because tanner didn't give him a pep talk.

    Have you also had the misfortune of seeing the mind blowingly awesome andrenalin charged epic from another of x-games big donors, Harley Davidson in the summer version? The hooligan races?

    I too pine for the days when pencil-steeze 1080s won Big Air contests. I'll bet none of these punk kids can even do a twister-twister spread.

    Ah. Got it. He won big air I think, right?

    That video is from the 2013 X-Games. Supposedly Henrik had never even tried the trick before.

    This thread and the criticisms of Big Air comps has me thinking, is big air going to go the way of the old Freestyle Aerials? I think that stuff is still around but seemingly no one cares, do they?

    Not quite the same thing but Markus Eder did a butter cliff huck on the FWT the year before last, it was pretty sweet...

    watching the snowboarding knuckle huck was literally the only time in my life I thoroughly enjoyed watching a snowboarding comp.

    I wish say slopestyle had a rotation limit. No more than 720... Be stylish.

    I will say I hate this jam format with no score they are using this year, makes it hard to figure out what the fuck is going on.
    Its not that I suck at spelling, its that I just don't care
