According to the NYT:
> White opened up with a frontside double cork 1440 followed by a cab double cork 1440...
I don’t know what any of that means but it sounds impressive.
Damn this skips my favorite part, how damned pumped he looked at the end when he realized that he had pulled off all of that. It's almost like you can tell that he knew he just won.
And that’s how you get a full TRICKY meter.
That slow Burton flare to get in that sponsor moment was fucking slick.
This makes me nostalgic for the old SSX games
He makes it look easy. I can't imagine how much work went into making those few seconds happen.
Throwback to the tutorial on Stoked, my favorite snowboarding game. They discuss 2 schools of "Style"- hucking, or trying to do as many spins as possible on a jump; and style, slower rotations that are skillfully done and look good. While I recognize Shaun White is amazing at snowboarding, I would rather see truly stylish tricks than prewinding from the lowest part of the pipe... but maybe that's just me. Still think he earned gold, however!
I'm glad I wasn't playing the NBC Shaun White drinking game last night. I'd have been dead from alcohol poisoning a half hour before he even did this run.
It's amazing how he never seems to reach the bottom of the run.
How the fuck do you stay so oriented with all those spins. That shit is insane.
One of the coolest things I've ever seen.
He's a sick pervert fuck. He made his band member watch scat porn and he made her dress sexy and dictate her love life. Fuck him. Sick fuck
