    don’t get me wrong, visconti is ridiculously good at snowboarding. his part in the new think thank was fucking nuts but come on dude… deep cut V neck and tight, white jeans? are you sponsored by the girls clothing department at H&M?

    yes nick’s clothing style is a little strange. but other dude is wearing a quad xl hoodie and a facemask. i don’t really see the difference. bottom line is nick is doing his trick switch, and on a way nastier wall

    This is a photo competition, but…
    Who the fuck cares how Nick Visconti is dressed? He’s one of the best urban riders out there, and his jumping skills are on point too.

    I agree Nick kills it on a snowboard- the clown shoes comment was because his outfit blends into the background. Except for the super bright eye-drawing boots. That look like clown shoes.

    I’m sure it was a good video shot, I think it makes for an awkward photo though…
    I thought he was doing a nollie drop but after looking closely I can barely see a kicker behind him? Right?

    I’m not going to vote for it just because it’s Visconti. He’s a rad rider. Jason is a rad photographer. The other stuff I’ve seen from those two last winter has been next level. I’m just not feeling this particular shot.

    its not about the trick retards, its about the photo. the photographer wins the gear, not the rider. first photo is way better than the second one

    Havin a hard time seeing how you consider the first photo to be “way better than the second one”. The composition of the second photo is much better and more pleasing to the eye. All I see on the right side of the first photo is dead space.
    Whether you like the way Visconti is dressed or not his style is much more on point than the first rider and his spread wings. Look at his composure and the look on his face. Fuckin dirty!
    The rider in the second photo is lit much better than the first.
    The feature in the second photo and the trick being done is much gnarlier than that of the first.
    The first photo doesn’t suck by any means but I definitely would’ve at least tried to capture some better style if I had been the photographer.
    Tackitt’s photo gets my vote. Shits raw!

    @dirkdiggler you might wanna take in the fact that the first rider is on the wall, and visconti is in the air. not exactly easy to keep your arms in when youre riding horizontally down a brick wall. and youre just plain wrong about there not being any style in the first photo. the photog captured the wall, the stairs, and the rider very nicely. That being said, both photos are nice. Photo 1 gets my vote.

    Well at the bottom of photo 2 it clearly states “which shot is most off the wall?” and Visconti is clearly off the wall. So in that case photo 2 wins. Ha! And it’s just a better photo.
