Back in the old days, people had the whole trend where whoever skied the longest ski was therefor the coolest or best or whatever.
Well this trend is back and it's fucking gay. Every time someone mentions that they ride a 160 they get dissed or if someone's ski looks small in a pic they get dissed and this is what brings NS and the entire ski community down. It's pathetic and a lot of it can come from jealousy. When I mean jealousy I mean when you're getting ready to hit a table one your 180s when a kid on 160s hits it and throws a super nice trick and you say he only did it because he was on short skis.
It's all personal preference, people can ski a 190 or they can ski a 140, it's all skiing, the fact that you're doing a technical trick doesn't mean shit. I know it looks better a lot of the time when someone's using a longer ski, it's because it's proporionate to them, but still, people will ski a short ski and that doesn't make them a better or worse skier. I ski a 164 and I can do all the same shit on a much longer ski, I don't give a fuck that I ski something short, I want something longer for powder because I fall forward and backwards easier but I don't have the money.
So many people are following this trend and every little bitch that calls someone gay because they ski a short ski is either trying to make themselves sound superior or the fact that they're jealous.
