Stop the hate, fucking A. Half the people posting in that are barely fucking literate anyway.
I've wanted to say this for a long time and I feel this is an appropriate forum (P.S - I do both, well!):
problem with skiers is the better they get, the more stupid they look!
Skiing is a mess of poles with a perverted affection for sunglasses.
Watching one of you struggle along the street is EMBARRASING.
Perpetually flailing around: the only positive element is when you fall
down stairs, to be swiftly scythed by your ensuing skis and ,
deservedly, buggered by your poles; both of them.
Yes skis are
faster, that's because of physics and undisputable. Yes on those
ice-rink early season days it's a blast on skis and a snowboard would
be pointless/suicidal BUT:
A snowboard is more aestheticly
pleasing on and off the rider, in the air and on the snow not just
because it has more surface for better graphics, but also because it is
purer. One edge, One component, One rider, One love.
skis are messy affairs - although I salute the modern freestylers sans
poles. On a snowboard simplicity wins through again - no flailing poles
and bird-shit silouette - Rider, Board, Beautiful.
disciples of both sports would say powder is the shiznit and both would
agree they'd be reaching for their board that day and leaving their
skis without hesitation.
Those of you who can actually do both
and have done in the best of conditions already know and you'll not be
reading this because you know it's irrelevant. The rest of you will
carry on bitching and complaining in your harping tribes and be wrong
I had to say that once in my life, thank you for reading it!
PEACE! ONE LOVE!
the reason for the dig at sunglasses is that if you go fast your eyes
water regardless of the brand or price, and then you can't see, which
is fucking stupid. Fair enough if you dont want to go fast but....!
