how is making racer skis 'untrue' to the 'movement'? i got news for you, just because your skis have turned up tails, you're not Che Guevara, and you're not rebelling against the man.
The movement that Jay Levinthal is in is the 'make money selling skis and not go out of business' movement. Yes, making good twin tips is their primary focus, but they can't exactly do that if they ain't makin any money.
fuck you cockworm im not rebeling againts shit. im just saying that racing skis are straying from the idea of the rider owned newschool company. how does che guavera fit into this anyways. go fist yourself asshole.
I raced. cant really say to your parents 'hey mum, i gotta go ride the park for a week so can you shout me, and im gonna need you to tell my school that im gonna need 3 extra weeks off to ride park aswell' racing was the perfect cover plus you can't beat the adrenaline rush and as if the technical training can be bad for your skiing.
'i don't want to start shit, internet fights are gay'. another intelligent response. tell ya what though, you don't need to convince me. Give line skis a call and tell them how 'untrue' they are, and how upset you are with them.
You should also explain to them how selling 1 pair of normal downhill skis and like 6 or more jib oriented twin-tip skis strays 'from the idea of the rider owned newschool company'. Apparently selling that ski makes J Lev stop being both a rider and owner?
On the other hand, you could always just buy skis from a company that in addition to skis, also makes items like tennis rackets, hiking shoes, roller blades, mountain bikes, and snowboards. Those companies are all way more core and 'true to the movement' than that poser Line company.
if you have ever heard Jason L's explanation, it makes perfect sense. not one person has mentioned it though. what he is doing is putting a twin tip name on an all mountain ski. after people like the ski,. he is hoping they will get a slightly twined ski, like the mavericks. this will get more people into our sport. he says it a whole lot better but that is pretty much exactly why he is doing it
