Here Goes, My theory of how snowboarding got so popular:
When kids go to learn how to ski...the first thing they are taught is the pizza wedge, that teaching system doesnt work and the kid has absolutely no fun...but the kid sees the snowboarders sitting on the hill and even though they cant board for shit, they can still look cool with the other ones...and snowboarding is so much easyer to pic up than skiiing.....I know that one of the reasons i didnt go to snowboarding is because the 'wedge' is not the way i learned how to ski, so i always had fun skiing
...so the main thing is...Its the fucking PSIA ski school's fault that snowboarding got so popular...because the PSIA system sucks ass

or the fact that snowboarders haev always pretended to be the leathe jacket wearing cult that all the kids in the 80's wanted to be in
Jules: Whoa... whoa... whoa... stop right there. Eatin' a bitch out, and givin' a bitch a foot massage ain't even the same fuckin' thing.
Vincent: Not the same thing, the same ballpark.
Jules: It ain't no ballpark either. Look maybe your method of massage differs from mine, but touchin' his lady's feet, and stickin' your tongue in her holyiest of holies, ain't the same ballpark, ain't the same league, ain't even the same fuckin' sport. Foot massages don't mean shit.
Vincent: Have you ever given a foot massage?
Jules: Don't be tellin' me about foot massages - I'm the foot fuckin' master.
Vincent: Given a lot of 'em?
Jules: Shit yeah. I got my technique down man, I don't tickle or nothin'.
Vincent: Have you ever given a guy a foot massage?
Jules: Fuck you.
Vincent: How many?
Jules: Fuck you.
Vincent: Would you give me a foot massage? I'm kinda tired.
Jules: Man, you best back off, I'm gittin' pissed.
i think that snowboarding got so big is because the small few started doin it to llok cooler, then as time went on, snowboarding was the thing to do, u did it to be different. well now that everyone and there brother snowboards, its kool to be different and ski. watch skiing will blow up, and it has already started too, and then kids will snowboard to be different again
well, its now time to scope out the freshman crop
yea, some people didnt want to learn basic stuff skiing, so many started snowboarding and never learned the basics of that either. but for the most part it is easier than skiing, which is a plus to most, and for people such as parents, its considerably cheaper to send their kid snowboarding. as more and more people found snowboarding cool, the flow of followers came. rose exponentially, slow, then exploded, but now its chillin out... snowboarding may be more mainstream but more peopel ski thatn snowbaord... i just kinda though of shit. most of that didnt make sense or wasnt realivent, but oh well
yeah the wedge almost ruined my skiing experience. It was no fun. Then I got snowblades and the wedge doesnt work on those so I just straightlined everything until i learned how to turn. Now I'm a pro skier.
^^ no! I honestly learned to snowboard to a point of naturally carving, riding switch, and landing 1's in a matter of one day. And that's not just me, it's very easy to pick up-- especially if you have skied all of your life.

i tried snowboarding for three days when i first ever got to a mountain when i was like 10. i hated it and i sucked so bad. i returend my board and rented skis(and they were straight skis i might add) i took a 5 minute ski lesson from watching the ski school guy with the little kiddies and i was on blue squares and a few black diamonds my first day on skis. i think it all depends on the person really. cuz my friend was the same way.
i think i think i like it like thata
