I've watched that second one before....a lot. The ones that they land backwards are nuts.

Not the old pro tour, but here's another good one for freestyle jump. These guys are switching spots in the air:

Those guys are really good...it is amazing when you progress to a PROLEVEL how much the
form is cleaned up. In a tournament environment you are not skiing for the crowd you are skiing
towards the 5-7 judges. Thoses jumps add points as they there level of talent goes up. A one ski mob gets more points than a 5 man rider over etc etc etc. The special cut unders and cross overs would not be done in most paid shows as the are beyond most of the crowds comprehension...very cool none the less.

Clean basic well executed jump acts are key to large paid shows. Everything is in unison.

I have driven for all these guys at some point...just a cool quick promo video.

Many a team that performs for pass the hat shows on friday night or sat at some point during the year is practicing for the state or regional tournament...like I said that jump team is awesome and I envy there talent as my jump career started way to late in my life...driving is my forte'.

Summer is here and those jump acts are probably going on now!!!
