He made me love the big floaty three, legitimized halfpipe skiing to the masses, and made it cool to excel in all aspects of the sport.

Reference information:
secondo me, per big floaty three si riferisce a questo: le tre rotazioni e mezzo, che suppongo fossero "fluttuanti" o sospese...ma non ci metto la mano sul fuoco

The development of twin-tip skis during the 1990s allowed skiers to ride forward or backward, and it kicked off a revolution in the sport. Johnson adopted twin-tips early and was the first to perform many maneuvers, including a bio 1260 — a spin of three and a half rotations while grabbing his skis — at the 2002 U.S. Freeskiing Open.
