It took a long time for snowboarding to get to this point. It’s kind of like the people on My 600 lb life. How do they let themselves get to that point before deciding to go on TV to do something about it? But of course, in snowboarding it’s not really a problem. Ugly, yeah. Necessary, nah. But it’s actually kind of exciting and gives us something to talk about. You have to respect the level of
spinning and hucking athleticism it required. And Billy Morgan couldn’t have done it alone.
People have been claiming the quad cork for years. But now that someone actually did it, we have to ask ourselves: has progression gone too far? Did any one really need to try a 1800 Quad cork? Are we as snowboarders, happy that Red Bull made it possible? We’re sure Billy is, because there’s no way he would have tried that shit if he didn’t want to (and have a little bit too much Red Bull in his system.) Was it worth all the views? Was it fun?
Anyway, hopefully this doesn’t become the standard cause no one wants to watch that shit, it looks gross. Hell, no one else even wants to try that shit, do they? McMorris, we’re looking at you…
Preston Strout handled this the best.
