Back to basics!

 

“So here we go again, its the 2015 edition of JOI. This year is extra special to me as we are bringing back the original raw format of a Big Air contest. With my new life in the parks, this feels like the right move as this frees up a lot of opportunities to work on the jump and adding extra things that there was not room for in the past. After all, the jump was the one and only focus from the start of this event, and its time to bring that focus back!

Format wise I have thought a lot about what is the best for the sport and the spectators in order to keep these events fun to watch. I think the key is to find a format where the crowd gets to see things that they are not used, so together with the riders I have worked on a format where one of the jumps they do have to be a single flip (no double or triple) or just an upright spin. This way the crowd gets to see the crazy tripes, but the also gets to see a variety of tricks and I can honestly say that I don’t think I have seen a lot of the top guys do anything crazy that is not a double or tripe, so I am excited to see what they will bring out!

So I think its going to be a good one, stoked to get up there and host another year of crazy big air skiing and awesome parties!”
