This is a cross-post from TGR, it's 3 POV vids that are just some dam fine skiing in JH.
Rach' I am 99% sure this is "your" guy :) Note the red and white jacket.......
Good 'bout time someone with talent gave them the opportunity to show their potential! Enjoy. Which "old pair" are you referring to? the 181's? Enjoy a fantastic ski,
Rach' since we now know the name of your dude........
Yes, the 181's SFT. I'm trying to pry them from Phil's grasp. I consider myself someone who is pretty good at not falling down, rather than talented, but I'll give em all i got.
hmm, good luck on that! His son was rather fond of them as well. Good news is they made a few pairs... I just wish they put an early rise on them with a nice taper. like a 1.5-1.88cm over 30cm. would be a near perfect ski.
"I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy"! Very sick stuff. Great skiing...so fluid, creative and straight down the fall-line. Thanks for sharing this...a reminder of what's possible. Stoke meter rising as the weather cools.
Which one has the P100? I could only identify the 130, Mothership and P115.
Pretty sure, but not positive I guess, that the green ski in the first video is the Prophet 100. Now that I go back and look at it though, I don't see the metal matrix, so maybe it was the flite?
The text under the video in at least one place I've seen that video says: "Andrew Whiteford missed the powder day the day before so he hopped around inbounds on the new Prophet 115." That text along with the P115 having a green topsheet makes a pretty strong case for the skis being the P115. Regardless, the guy clearly has some skills and some cahones as he heads right into and over all the things on a hill that I would generally consider obstacles to avoid. He could probably do that on any ski. However, since I'll be on the P115 this season, I like to watch that video and dream that those skis will instantly enable me to ski like that. Reality will surely take hold when I actually click in and start sliding.
Quoting myself as september in 2010 I had posted about wanting a rockered Nomad SFT. well finally we get this ski in 2013..... Yeah! Nomad SFT.
Ya know, after skiing those exact skis, that was my thought as well. Needed rocker and some taper. My Lhasa Pows are perfect.
