^Yeah dude that is totally they way i feel, i could not have put it any better. Its that feeling that people watch you and say wtf since when can a skier do that. You sit there and ppl look at you all funny like ur an alien or something. But i would have to say in the past year skiing has become way more mainstream, kids at my schol say "armada they make skis right" (after looking at my shirt or something) i was pleasantly suprised the first time that happened but now most kids at my school and i think elsewhere have seen or know something about the world of newschool. oh well now ppl will start getting only core companies to differentiat themselves from the mainstream.Join the Handrails Cult today!
