Gus Kenworthy's Cameraman Eats Shit Trying To Keep Up With Him On An X Games Course

*Wait till the end for the fall*

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: skiers and snowboarders are the most under-appreciated athletes on the planet. You don’t realize it because they make it look so easy, but the stuff they do on a daily basis is impossible for 99.99999% of the population. Look at how high he is.

And he’s not even competing. He’s just doing it for fun. It’s like they have no fear of dying whatsoever. He’s going ninety miles per hour backwards then launches himself off a jump without even looking. Even the grinds make my knees hurt.

It’s no wonder his camera man eat it at the end of the run. How is he supposed to keep up with that level of athleticism while at the same time filming and doing the jumps? He can’t. Based on the caption it seems like he’s fine but still, it gives you an appreciation for what these guys do on a daily basis.
