Kyle Strait and Tyler McCaul are two very different people. Not just differing in the obvious size department, but they are opposites in every way. Over the course of the year we will be bringing you six episodes following them from their off season at home to what it's like at a major slopestyle contest.
In this first episode we go to Tyler's hometown Santa Cruz, Ca. Tyler spent weeks digging on these trails so we could shoot them and for that you should thank him. If you are a fan of flow, you will not be dissatisfied with what is below.
