 Sick riding! And I really liked the edit. But the drone pilot - a little bit too close?? Cringed a few times there, not that I ever will send tricks like those that big, but having a drone buzzing up your face seems like not a nice feeling.

 The rider and the course are both top tier, mad props to everyone involved.. banger event Bois n Gills..

Anyone got a track title for the song played at the beginning of the video? It too is pretty top tier!

 Wow, Patricia Druwen is the future of female slopestyle. She will be inspiring and opening up opportunities for so many other girls! It's funny how seeing her throw down is so much more exciting than seeing the boy do the same things but with at least one rotation more.
