Alright let me start this off by saying that a few months ago I remember EastCoast_destruction making a thread about how many posers he sees in the park and how aggrivated it made him (sorry dude not trying to call you out... just an example). I've seen statements like this made by a ton of people, and it kind of pisses me off.
Although there are certain exceptions, but I don't see why kids have to be dicks to other kids just because they aren't as good as them but may have better gear. For all you know, that kid might have bagged groceries all summer to pay for his Oakley suit and T-Hall's. Just because he can't slide rails as good as you or can't do certain jumps doesn't mean you have the right to call him a poser. Most kids I know get pissed at the kids that just stand there and watch but don't hit anything, but the reason they don't hit anything is because they are afraid of falling and getting shit from other kids. And yes, I know in some instances there are kids that ski less than 5 times a year but have mommy and daddy buy all this new gear for them... but how are you to know who paid for this kid's stuff if you've never even talked to him before?
I'm sorry that I suck at explaining things because it's kind of hard, but I think we should all just ski and let ski. And not care about the bullshit things like how some kids don't use poles and some kids suck at skiing but have dope set-ups.
Feel free to say your opinions... that's just my two cents.
