Candide Thovex is a professional French freestyle skier who’s known for his creative approach to the sport. Creative in this instance meaning incredibly dangerous and jaw-droppingly awesome.
I don’t really realize the skill of professional athletes until I see them up close. The speed in which they do things, the control they have over their bodies, the hand eye coordination, it’s all ridiculously superhuman. Just check out this video of hockey players running through exercises and tricks. You get to see some of them in the first person view and it’s insane.
I always love watching Jason Pelsey play the piano from his perspective. It reminds me of how special music and art can be because even though I too have two arms and ten fingers, I cannot even come close to melting the keys of a piano like he does. It is totally frantic and powerful and it seems like his fingers are moving so fast that the music becomes so fluid. Your eyes can’t keep up with what you’re hearing.
