    In my humble opinion… Nico Muller has the aesthetically pleasing riding style of any snowboarder ever… casual, effortless and he makes the difficult look easy. I believe that looking relaxed and in complete control is good style.

    Also, anyone ever noticed that Muller and Tom Burt have the same back rodeo arm in effect when they’re shredding pow? I personally love how it looks….like they’re riding a bull down the hill.

    christoph- anytime you wanna jib down, lets!! :thumpsup: I spent some years playing in the park and the one thing all the jumping and jibbing has taught me is the ONEness with my board, its not just connected to my feet, it is an extension of my body, so I can butter press, nollie spin, 270, bluntslide even, whatever, it just gives you that power to know you can control the board in almost any situation. It really helps you learn the traits of the snowboard in an expressed way. And now I am looking to cab down cliffs and Ollie rocks, slide logs over uncovered terrain, just be able to handle anything in your way.

    Maybe at this years splitfest in pdx we should have a jib contest everyone who enters brings a 6 pack, either winner takes all or if there are enough entrants we could divie up the prizes :guinness:

    Sick style by Dirksen… hanging out with the original Mr Pipeline can only help. Dirksen has a low front arm with the rear arm rudder.

    For sure, I was already thinking hard boot vs. soft boot big air contest, but some jib features would just up the ante… 8)

    Johan Olofsson’s segment in TB5 (1995) still inspires me to this day. At about 3 minutes in Johan starts the “3000ft of vert around ~50degree in 35 seconds experience”. Johan’s segment in TB5 has shaped my approach to how I read lines and stands the test of time. I don’t care what your front or trailing arm is doing or what kind of boot/snowboard you prefer. If you ride with style, it will be obvious to all of those who bear witness. Johan’s part in TB5 is sick and inspiring.

    steeze is as steez does
    Butters bustin a move

    It doesn’t matter if you duck squat in mushboots, oldskool tuck kneed rudder arm in foot vices.
    or even (god forbid) ski or tele, smooth efficient turns and line choice looks good, and aint that
    what steez is?

    I always feel bad for whoever Peter Ström is after watching that.

    Johan’s riding is aggressive, impressive, inspiring, physical, and scrappy. A key element of steez is that it looks easy. He’s got impeccable line choice and is just barely holding on in this segment.
    He goes for the biggest, baddest trick he can pull off and barely sticks many landings. At 0:30, he send that double by ratcheting his body around: jerk the board, jerk the body, jerk the board, jerk the body. Repeat until pointing the right direction.
    Steezy sevens are thrown smooth, tucked, and in control. :thatrocks:

    Here’s another vote for epic line choice, maintaining flow, low center of gravity, smooth, and in control. Dirksen and Burt all the way. :thumpsup:

    I too appreciate and enjoy Johan’s riding style in big mountains. But, I think it is important to note that his professional carreer was cut short due to injury.
    Be careful out there, and think twice before you attempt a backside 3 off of a natural terrain feature at 40 MPH.
