tricking is like skateboarding to me, i know its hard to flip that little piece of wood around but, its just boring as f#cking hell to watch.

after seeing someone do a double back off GRASS nothing in a gym will ever really impress me. i mean, bouncy floors... nuff said.

and before everyone jumps on my back calling me ignorant and stupid shit like that, please realize this is MY opinion. i dont care how hard you say it is because i know how hard it is. its just been over done, thus it is boring to me.

if he was doing all of this on concrete i MIGHT be a little more impressed. gymnastics floors are like mini trampolines, thus i am not impressed all that much.

some of that shit was nasty though ;)

That man right there is one of the most talented athletes I have ever seen. Claps for Damien Walters.

And Bioobird, I don't think you should be like that man. He has just as much right to this forum and an opinion as you do. If you have a problem with something someone says, then discuss it rather than telling him to stop talking.

It wasn't all flips, his kongs were pretty impressive as well as the lightning quick tripple cat to cat he does.

eisenberg, that's just like someone saying "i've seen too many kong vaults, kong vaults are boring". it's not about looking cool, it's about conquering fears and overcoming mental obstacles. he is not doing it for you, he is doing it for himself. this guy has pushed his boundaries mentally and physically to astounding levels. btw, damien walters wasn't claiming this to be parkour or freerunning. he was just doing new and inventive things with his body. you certainly have a right to your own opinion, but it came off as though you were dissing his art form and saying that it is inferior to yours, which is exactly what we don't want on this forum. please respect other peoples' disciplines because there are many people on here who have their own different passions for movement. it would be nice if we could talk as equals and not come off as elitists.
