This is neat. Gabriel Dance, Xaquín G.V., Jigar Mehta and Bedel Saget posted this video on the New York Times. It’s US Halfpipe coach Mike Jankowski explaining some basic pipe technique, as well as what riders have to do in the pipe in order to get solid scores. You know how sometimes things seem easier than they really are when you watch others do it? Like maybe hitting a golf ball? Well…to us, this video doesn’t make pipe riding look any easier. In fact it makes it look harder and scarier. Yea, we’re pretty tough over here. Click here to watch the 3 1/2 minute video.
