Everyone talks about wanting to go to Alaska and wanting to do all these dumb and insanely terrifying lines down blind spines and blah blah blah but you know what I want to do? Go somewhere where there’s a ton of cliffs and rollers and where I can try any trick off any cliff or roller and have no consequence if I fuck up. Then I might actually try the bio spin that takes place at 4:00 and land the 2nd bio spin to ever be attempted since 2007, when everyone stopped doing that trick. By the way, for anyone keeping track, Flo Bastien and Pa Chedal (can’t be a real name) are not skiing on next year’s skis and in fact, the company manufacturing one of their pairs of skis has gone completely bankrupt. 1 point scored for the amateurs , -1 point for Sochi.
Oh man, what would we do without GPSY FEELING? Probably not pretend we knew as much French. And we probably wouldn’t have known that Yann Barthelemy made a sweet movie with Julien Lange, Flo Bastien, P-A Chedal, Léo Taillefer, Yann Barthelemy, et autres amis. On another cultural note, I highly recommend the two-part 2008 film Mesrine about infamous French bank robber/prison escapee (4x)/kidnapper Jacques Mesrine, who was an absolute maniac, breaking out of multiple prions, even assaulting a maximum security prison he escaped from with machine guns in an attempt to release other prisoners, and kidnapping a judge during his own trial in order to escape. Highly recommended Netflix watch from the culture français.
You guys don’t check other ski websites, right? There’s no way. Thank God, since we can still call this four-day old edit breaking news. The news is pressing as well; apparently GPSY Feeling managed to avoid an Incan apocalypse in France and build some jumps this past May. So, in the words of the Frenchman dutifully practicing his American slang, “Get yo p*ssy on down to the barbeque.” We’re already in the car.
