12hundredth thread bout this, but im with you. i cant stand to go without.
Heloo, my name is Shane Mckonkey. I was born in Vancouver Canada, thats aboot three hours north of, ah, seattle.
Right now were here in Bella Coola Canada, and ah, weve been shut in by the weather for like three weeks eh. We havn't shot fuck all. Ooh, Soory.
We've just been sittng around, eating pasta, and spending loonies and toonies on Kokanee and peelers.
But, as soon as this weather clears, im gunna pull on my toque, eat some canadian bacon, and ah, im keen to giver.
i stuck my poles up my butt... and they arent coming out... so i rock poles in the butt steeze
"I wake up in the morning, make a bowl of instant oatmeal then I don't do shit for an hour... Makes me wonder why I need the instant oatmeal... I could get the regular oatmeal and feel productive... Whadda ya gonna do? Make oatmeal... chyea"
Yesterday was the first day in my life that I skied with poles. At first I hated using them but by the end of the day, I didn't want to put them down. I skated a lot faster and I kept my balance better on the steepes.
either or.... I have a fractured thumb right now so I've been skiing without poles and after I got used to the "naked" feeling, it wasn't so bad. It's fun... but I don't think I would switch to completely no poles all the time.
i really would like a statistic that showed how many people changed their opinion on no poles after all these vids of pep and mahre have shown up with them rockin no poles, cause im pretty sure it was really really homo to rock no poles before then, but its really hot right now so i do it.
meh its true, up until I would say mid last season I hated no poles, mostly cause I had never seen anyone make it look half decent, but some shots of andy last year and then the shots of andy and pep this year have definetly opened eyes for the possibilities
I ski'd until this year without poles and don't find them much of a hinderance, make going around on flat ground and getting your speed up easy. As for tricks if it is steezy it will look good with or without poles imo...
