The flag is supposed to be 10 m high. And the kicker is 20m high.
He should have broke some ribs...

Well it's good to see that we're mantaining our positive attitude here on newschoolers *cough* I mean epicski... Geez. Give credit where credit is due. This guy is hugely talented and an incredible innovator. He spun 810 degrees over a huge gap and landed and greased a 20 foot rail a few years ago! This guy has talent. It seems like everywhere I go lately, I'm seeing these "moderator ultimatem" letters to board frequenters. Is epic next?

That may well be the worst video quality I have ever seen.

More than once, because it's your 4th comment and I still don't get what's your point. One would had been enough, with at least a dozen words of course.

2006 Candide Invitational? He goes so big it is amazing, love his part in War and Tangerine Dream this year. Just retardedly big floaty slow 360's with true tail grabs. And he can land switch going so fast it's crazy. Nice jacket too.

Does Way get that high out of the QP? He goes big but not that big at least from what I saw in X-Games big air and Great Wall jump.

That's pretty big, but not as remarkable as some stuff I've seen Mr. Thovex do. I bet another day on that thing, getting it dialed and he gets another 5 to 10 feet.

my point is your post of the video was very weak. poor quality and not very impressive. So by putting on the board I was under the impression that the video would be good or better. I waited for it to load and then was very dissapointed. To continue on, do a bit or research and don't waste my time with that lame excuss of a video. Im sure Candide would be dissapointed that you put it up as well! Due to this lame-ass post, I will need to consider my past expierence with this post before venturing into another post started by you!

do you get it now Pierre?

agreed. i thought that GIGANTIC hip he jumped in ski movie 3 (also in happy days) was more impressive. but thanks, pierre, for posting the link. any candide video is better than no candide video.

Yes, please, do.

Yeah the hip in SM3 is pretty intense, although it's harder to jump a QP since you can deck out or case back out if you don't ride the tranny properly. The most impressive hip jump i've seen is Andreas Hatveit and Jacob Wester in War (I think taken from June Mountain). 30-40 feet off the deck of the hip, just crazy air.

Maybe Way doesn't get up quite that high, but he can clear a 70' gap and then get 20+ feet of air out of a quarter pipe. Incredible really, considering that's on a really hard wooden ramp, and skateboards just aren't meant to go that fast and that big. As much as I love skiing, and as cool as it can be, I don't think anybody in any sport is as gnarly or inventive as Danny Way has been this past decade. I bet even Thovex would admit to being inspired and influenced by Way.

"Way" to hijack a thread, Bez...

Danny Way is a madman; watching him pull off massive gaps into that QP last year on a bum ankle was incredible. That being said, I've maintained for a while now that Candide is probably the most well rounded freeskier on the scene right now. The kid goes huge, has great style, and generally makes the impossible look downright easy.

Are you two married? Ex-lovers? Steal each other's sippy cups when you were little?

Right on. At least now I don't have to watch Day of Our Lives today.

Oops, you're right, sorry 'bout switching lanes there...Way notwithstanding, what I saw in that clip of Thovex was still pretty good, I'd like to see more.
