Mr. Wells is nothing short of a style master. The man in black has done the competition scene his way since the beginning, and in recent years has seen his emphasis on style and technical tricks over â€śspin to winâ€ť pay big dividends. Last season Wells won his first X Games gold in slopestyle punctuated by a massive switch double cork 1440, but youâ€™re just as likely to see the Wanaka, New Zealand native tweak out a massive zero spin. Wells carries a skate influence into his jib sections and often throws unique combos into his runs. Heâ€™s the oldest of three Wells brothers on the competitive circuit, and it seems the ski world will be hearing from the Wells for years to come.
