Have you guys ever seen the Mat Hoffman documentary called The Birth of Big Air? I watched it a year or two ago and then I watched it in the beginning of the summer with my friend and I just watched it yesterday and I absolutely love it. If you haven't seen it I would strongly recommend watching it, it's on Netflix. I was thinking of things that I could do while I can't ride because of my fractured foot and I figured I'd watch that and I wanted to ride so bad afterwards! If you haven't already, go watch it.

Watch the whole thing, it's crazy! He, apparently, has had 100+ concussions! He's such a beast though, there are a lot of cool guys being interviewed as well, Danny Way, Tony Hawk, Jeff Tremaine. A lot of cool guys are in it.

You have to take things into account though.

Dugan : No things pulling him, airing on quarters

Hoffman : Pulled by a motorbike, vert ramp.

Still though, that air by hoffman is crazy

I still say Hoffman would dominate Dugan in an air contest on something taller than 6 feet.

dugan may not have anything pulling him but he flows around park for like half an hour to pick up speed before getting air

Tom is my favorite rider, I still think that Hoffman could beat him when he was in his prime. If they had an air contest tomorrow, I believe Dugan would win. That doesn't mean Mat is a bad rider! He's what 43? Something like that? Both of them are amazing riders, you have to respect talent like that.
