You've heard this all before, but...
... why do you all hate skiboarding so much? I don't skiboard but I really wanted to last year, and, I've seen this is so many different topics and everything but, why?!
It's a sport, just like skiing, people have their own style, just like skiing. Who the fuck cares if they're short boards? Who cares if not all of them are as good as you, not everyone is.
I don't get it, it's just retarded. If you're not skiboarding... why bad mouth it?

Dean: Who cares? Why won't you let us have any fun?
I agree with you on the fact that people who don't like skiboarding shouldn't actually go to the trouble of badmouthing it, but perhaps I can explain why skiers and snowboarders and everyone else aren't too fond of skiboarding. It doesn't look very good, and anyone who's ever gone rollerblading or ice skating can be a master on skiboards in less than 20 minutes. As for tricks on skiboards, the grabs don't look good and are easy as hell to do. Same goes for more difficult tricks, although actually skiing or skiboarding or whatever the hell you would call it away from the jump is a different story. They are pretty much weightless, so doing flips and off-axis shit is really easy. I realize in light of my first sentence the last few are pretty damn hipocritical, so perhaps another explanation is simply that, As McConkey says, every sport has their sport that they make fun of. Skateboarders have rollerbladers, snowboarders have skiers etc. It's just the way that it is.
I saw a skiboarder to a double ass grab this weekend (no joke)
I thought it was fucking cool

I agree heaps with the thing about a sport having its sport they bag out, in australia if you play rugby you bag out soccer, im sure softball cops it from baseball and so on, its not that we hate the sport and shit, its easy but you look like a gimp, but most of all its our sport we rag on, like boarders do on us and the old school skiers do on snowboarders. Its just the way it goes man.
ever wonder if iliterate people get the full effect of alphabet soup???
its the fact that you can do the exact same shit on skis, except for the fact that with skis you can actually incorporate style in the tricks...that and the fact that you can actually land...not to mention that it is pretty much just rollerblading.
