Like flying, you get mellow if your mind is right! IMO Steve's mind has never been far from perfect tuning. Really like what he's said on this thread. My own take on the video contest was pretty much in line with Steve's goals, as was my response. "I Wanna' Fly!!"
Gotta' agree with Paige that the site and conditions dictate what you can fly and how it can be flown. Having a great site like in the above videos is an incredible asset but not an absolute necessity for the development of expertise. An exemplar of this point is Kelly Slater in the surfing world. Sometimes honing one's skills in lousy situations makes the great condition days easier to excell in.
