Midwest Regionals - Nate Smith

edited July 2011 in Technique & Theory
I finally saw Nate ski in person, really impressive. A very clean 39 followed by 4 and 1/2 at 41 with a 10 to 15 mph tail. He's the real deal. Too bad he didn't get to ski the Masters this year.

    Totally random question: Anybody know if Nate's full name is Nathaniel? I've heard that's a really cool name to have...

    Its Nathan...Close though :) And I believe that makes 31 consecutive 39's in tournaments since January 2011. He is a freak.

    ... and that is 31-39's in all kinds of tournaments, not just perfect sites with no pressure. To have that kind of focus and consistancy is amazing. Maybe even more so than the technical aspect of his style.

    Exactly, all kinds of conditions and with the other top Open skiers on the dock and with cash on the line (all things the naysayers were saying he wouldn't be able to handle). Impressive to say the least!
