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:


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


+1

This has to happen! So many laughs would go down :lol:

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.

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.
