i did one the other day and thats what made me realize that theyre gay. grabs look cool because you grab with one hand and tweak it out or steeze it out with the other. its a smooth and steezy spin.
truck drivers, unless theyre in the pipe, just look reallllly stupid. youre park rat buddies might think it looks "really kewl" but really everyone else (everyone on the lift, snowboarders, skiiers like me) is laughing at you because you look like a dumbass doing it. they dont look steezy, they look stupid. theyre not progressive, they were around waaaay back before newschool got big, its not "steezy" or "progression". thats why i say, if youre going to be doing truck drivers, then lets start seeing some backpack grabs or some bug mans too. because at least the bug man doesnt give me cancer when i watch someone do it.
for the record too, i wouldnt be this vehement about the subject if everyone hadnt immediately slammed me for having "opinions". because you guys dont have open minds and cant accept the fact someone doesnt like something you like, ill sit around as long as nessecary to retort to you ignorant douchebags.

kinda what im trying to say... they look soooooo stupid, you have to be dead on a VERY fine line for them to look good. but FEW people do them that good. Dumont, C West, Sammy, a couple others, and thats it. everyone else that tries them sucks and looks reallllly stupid.
i just brought this up in another thread yesterday but i think truckdrivers are dope i just dont want to see them EVERYWHERE and in EVERYONES video part for EVERY trick. but that leads into another discussion of how people should be trying ALL the grabs and not just mutes, crutons, blunts, etc...
i didnt bother to read all the comments cuz this is a stupid thread and the creator seems to have something very personal against truckdrivers. its just a grab man, they have nothing to do with the truckdrivers yo momma ran off with.

I don't know about yall, but I think truckdrivers are pretty damn cool. It's so hard to drive across the country at long hours in the night, sleeping in the cab, eating horrible truckstop food, and doing whatever else truckdrivers do.
nevermind, seriously, truckdrivers look cool in the pipe and with certain people. Id rather see more blunts, true tails, true nose. Besides when you do truckdrivers it looks like your taking it up the ass. Almost everyone in skiing wants respect from mainstream people, if people are doing truckdrivers off every jump, they will think we are literally gay. So please, for the sake of the reputation of skiing, stop doing truckdrivers.
i cant take him[liam downey] seriously cuz his name reminds me of that downy bear from back when i was a kid -d loc
I don't deny there are bad things in the US right now, hell, 51% of the country to be exact. But god damnit, our country being fat is NOT a problem. I do't give a shit how fat people are. hell, fat kids are harder to kidnap, that means our country is safer.
i called that they were going to be played out soon a while back. its not that they dont look good its just that i saw a six year old doing it on a 2foot jump the other day. they are just simply played out
dude just let it go. let kids do what they want. yeah i think they are pretty wack, but then again so were spreads and daffies. the truck diver will take a nice long ride but will eventuallly die and be left for retrospectives of future skiers
i think it just shouldnt be something thats like OOOOH AAHHH, and people should still mix it up... i know people are gonna bag me for this but look at snowboarding, they do like every grab in the book, and i think skiiers should be that way an stop getting into ONE trend of a of ONE grab every year and still do different things.
I feel that truck drivers are really sick to see and that I'll never get bored of seeing them but everyone is literally obsessed with them. If you can do a truck driver switch corked 5, you're garunteed to do very well.
Don't take away from me
The only fucking thing
That I learned to believe
I am becoming the monster
You promised to keep out of my way
Now I feel like he's living in me
