Naked Double Back Flip
Max Morello releases 2013-14 park edit
Max Morello has style on skis. He also has balls. As confirmed with his underflip in Poor Boyz Productions’ 2013 release Tracing Skylines, which earned him the Best Jib award at the 14th Annual Powder Awards, and in the above video courtesy of Newschoolers.
This compilation of Morello’s 2013-14 season was shot on site at Mount Hood, Mammoth, and Whistler to name a few, featuring back flips, right and left side spins, doubles, and stylie hip airs, where Morello always seems to find the tranny seamlessly. Balls out, Max. Balls out.
