wow. I asked if they thought it was cool. I don't mind, i just don't think anyone, including the skiboarders think it's cool. Plus any skiblader ive met has been a total fuck. I think they're just people that can't ski.
About the snowboarding thing... I said GOOD snowboarders have respect for skiing, aka not posers. The poser snowboarders (9 out of 10 snowboarders) are the ones that rip on skiing because they are so insecure with their own skills that they think it makes them cool. All of the snowboarders I know that are good, including any pros Ive met in the past, think it's awesome that skiing is progressing and that there's a scene. They also respect skiing. I doubt any snowbladers respect their sport.
I brought all this up after talking to a guy who works for a skiblading company who is forced to skiblade since he works for the company. I was shopping for Kneissl Rail Boots and came to their site, and so I called them up and the guy told me I should just ski, and I told him that I never skibladed. So yeah... I just feel bad for the skibladers that can't switch over.
If you get ripped on by a snowboarder ask them what they can do, and tell them you'll play them in a game of 'JIB' and 99 out of 100 times they'll say some lame excuse why they won't. Just look at my sig, it's not a rip on snowboarding, just the posers.
Thanks for your time, and for ripping on me and calling me a shit, it's been great, we should do it again sometime.
