It's easier than going slow and doing it. If you rip off the kicker you don't have to worry about popping or catching or tips or not getting on. And man, that dude is right. You haven't seen many people ski have you?
Off topic: Does anyone here watch Flight of the conchords? Funny shit, that Aziz dude from Human Giant was shit talking them and refusing to sell them fruit because he said them touching the fruit made it taste like New Zealanders. Then he told them to go ride around on their Kangaroos and put shrimp on the barbie.
