No matter how much we plan, scenarios rarely go as such. We land where we land. Whether we match the transition, whatever it may be, is what’s important. Here we see Iikka Backstrom with a rogue popper into some variability. He might touch down in a perfect pocket or somewhere less fortunate. Iikka’s good and so too is his chance of riding away regardless, but we all tomahawk, and with each ragdoll comes a better understanding of how to stay on our feet and increased motivation to do so. Nothing’s perfect, but practice makes it so we can power through the imperfections without a plan.
