Coleman is known for having his own unique flair, either dropping completely unique variations or tweaking tricks in ways only he's been able to master. Not surprisingly, he strives for diversity in his riding, which has led him into several different disciplines throughout his riding career, the most recent being Vert. He brings his signature style to the halfpipe, floating downside whips so big it seems impossible that he'll make it back to the pedals in time.
