fully agree with you mate! except my own leaderboard where Jessy is number 1longwhitecloud wrote: ↑Thu Feb 07, 2019 12:18 amMy scorecard
1. LIam 2. Jessee 3. Kevin
It was close no doubt. Liams kungfoo pass with a late pass squeezed the win and his mlbr was pretty big. Jessee and Kevin I scored v close, but gave it to Jessee for technicality. Kevin's one foot and roll board off loops were late on the dangle so i couldnt score them as super technical, his kite had way more paragliding going on, on way down, way less risk and technical, using a handle too. Variation at a high level - Jessee won.
Judges need to separate late tricks from during the loop and late. And as for "double half cab"... no such thing, as soon as it got named by accident - it was was taken back as a trick name as it was incorrectly named.
But you know what... with the 70% height - kevin won - because with that completely dumb ratio you may as well ride boring low risk (relatively) with a handle on things. He wasnt that much higher than Jessee by 70/30 . -why bother being technical... Also there is no way the judges have time to calculate the 70/30 on the fly, but i guess they have done the sums to see how dumb it is.
It was not a Freestyle competition but King of the Air.mrbig wrote: ↑Thu Feb 07, 2019 4:08 pmI was there yesterday for the duration of the event and also watched the recording again today. I wanted to see more detail and do a comparison after the fact.
IMHO, from the video alone, you can't come close to appreciate the height Kevin got on the day compared to the others.
With less than ideal wind and choppy water he consistently managed to boost the highest and managed to stay super smooth and controlled.
Yes, dangles and passes are no doubt risky when adding megaloops but it not really big air and even if you know what's happening it can look a bit disjointed.
Besides, megaloop front roll board off at proper height looks pretty damn impressive and is not easy to pull off. Ask Marc Jacobs.
