Well my favorite Freerunner is by far Neil Hutson. His video was the first real showreel I ever saw, I added him as a friend on facebook and he put up with a lot of questions via chat,lol.
Other tops on my list would be...
- Andrew "Syn" Obenreder for his individual flow
- Sascha "Cionn" Hauser because he's just a pure, staight-up beast
- Pip "Piptrix" Andersen for his amazing acrobatics and power
- Vinnie Coryell most dedicated person I've seen, he's acomplished so much in so little time too.
That's my top 5
Thank you Cody. That's quite flattering. It means a lot to me when I'm able to inspire someone else.
But back on topic...
I honestly don't have a "favorite" traceur, traceuse, freerunner, ragefroobler, or anything or the sort. My team mates and friends as well as the communities that I've trained with are my favorite traceurs and traceuses.
