POST YOUR FREESTYLE SHOTS AND VIDEOS HERE!!!

while my trip reports are usually very heavy with mountaineering content and hard-boots, i love riding park and hitting it with the free-style.

to get to know everyone better here on this website, i wanna see your park riding shots! i know some of you out there are hittin it good.

park riding helped my snowboarding immensely. it gives you the ability to be nimble on your feet, and to adapt to different riding situations.

here are my fairly weak shots (the only freestyle stuff i shot this season :( )

FLOP N SLPASH


SKI BOWLS' PARK IS SO MINI

Thanks for starting this thread Chris... Is that a solid you're riding at at the bowl?

I need to dig through some old photos and do some scanning or get a friend to hold the camera next season. As I do find myself in the park on occasion.

Does surfing sick waves count as freestyle? Perhaps that should be another thread...

I won the Mallay day 2010 biggest method contest on a split board. Josh was one of best natural freestylers this world will ever see! I would love to have seen the creativity he would have brought to the backcountry. RIP Josh! Destroy

Haha, wish I had some footage or pics. After spending several seasons riding Breck's park regularly way back when, moving to Tahoe with shitty parks and more featured terrain with good snow just lined up perfectly for bringing freestyle to natural features. But the past couple dry winters, coupled with improved parks, had me getting back into some park riding. Pointing it at a large booter is still a huge rush, and helps build good air awareness that translates to other parts of the mountain, I just gotta remember that I weigh twice as much as most of the young jibbers and I'm not gonna land on the tranny if I hit it with the same speed they do.

Dude, you know I am down! Boarding is the best, and if your not hiking for it, even better.
