Triples. A year ago, you would have rolled your eyes at the thought.
You'd have had to slow your roll though, partner. Last summer, while your pupils were in the back of your forehead, Chris Turpin attempted a newschoolish triple flip to end a rowdy summer afternoon session at Momentum.
Less than a year later this May, to be exact rumors circulated that Bobby Brown knocked a three-bagger at a Matchstick Productions park shoot in Alaska. But in the interest of not diluting the effect that those three seconds of footage will have in high school auditoriums across the United States in September, rumors those remain.
Snowboarding has been on a similar collision course with the triple. I can't relay as many of the details, but I do know that a dude named Nils Arvidsson was trying a triple cork right about the time that the Bobby rumors were popping. Today Torstein Horgmo posted a video of himself stomping what might as well be the first-ever triple cork. And boom goes the dynamite.
It might not be skiing, but it's what every skier is talking about right now.
