Dan Franck - strength
Shaun White - youth
Terje Haakonsen - style
Ross Powers - consistency
Danny Kass - balls
there are of course, lots more
And for the gals
Shannon Dunn - consistency
Natasa Zurek - power
That's my opinion.
What makes them the best? Havent heard much on Mr Kass before, wheres he from?
Kass is an American, I think he rides
at Mammoth, or at least somewhere in Tahoe.
he's pretty new, and he's only like 18.
he was pretty much unknown till 2000-2001,
but then he started winning everything.
he just goes huge, almost reckless in his
style - one of those make it or break it
kinda guys, but he stomps almost everything.
yeah he's from Mammoth. . .
and he's even got his own trick,
switch Haakonflip 900 grabbed Indy.
I can't even picture that in my head.
How about Japanese riders? Saw the dude at the Olympics and he was really good. Any more out there?
I'm pretty good myself, if I say so myself.
i like Shaun White's style... he's got some major flow goin' on
This guy was on TV last night and looked awesome.
Made me realise I have LOOOONNNNNGGGGG way to go.
