        SNOWBOARING IS ALMOST THE RADDEST THING ON EARTH TO DO AND IT HAS THUS INSPIRED THE MANY DISTANT GALACTIC SHREDDERS OF THE UNIVERSE AT LARGE TO ASSEMBLE HERE OVER THE PAST 30 YEARS SESSION BY SESSION AND GROW STEADILY INTO THE AUTONOMOUSLY STYLE-FILLED SUB-CULTURE THAT IT HAS BECOME. THE MYRIAD STORIED, GENERATIONALLY INTER-CONNECTED INCREDIBLENESS THAT HAS OCCURED IN ALL SNOWBOARDERS’ COLLECTIVE MOUNTAIN GENIUS WILL PERMEATE THE COOLEST OF COOLNESS SEEKERS OF AWESOMENESS.

    Jamil Kahn,RIP, there is a video called Kung Pow from the late 90’s with him saying that half pipes were limiting potential of tricks and the walls needed to be much bigger. He called it years before the typical Xgames pipes.From what I hear sounded like he was a pretty cool dude too.
