nah dood he's fuckin built..i read some interview w/ him in freeskier like 2 seasons ago and he one punched some guy to the ground who was tlakin shit about his friend and the guy was like 3x's the size of dumont
You know, for all those who hate Dumont thats cool. Just remember what he and many other pro skiers are doing for our sport. you have to repsect the kid for that reason. I am not saying I hate the kid or like him. Im just saying hes doing too much for our sport to hate on the kid.

looking to meet anyone who enjoys long, fast turns on sweet groomers, big hits or deep pow in the glades!! Must love the outdoors and not be afraid of cold temperatures or adverse weather conditions.
honestly that makes simon more of a tool, not the fact that he could, but that he most likely would if you said anything mean to him. fighting's fucking gay, its for football players, wrestlers and hicks.
and simon is an ass hole, ive seen him probably 15 days this past season and almost every day he was yelling shit at people, hating on kids with no poles, and just being a tool. though there was one day when he was next to me in the lift line and said "hey whats up" all nice to me, and i had no pole's. it was confusing cause like 2 weeks eariler he said something like "why dont you just snowboard" when he saw me without poles. so im confused. still though 99% of the time ive seen him he was being an ass.
no offense. i don't see how your orange, they are supposed to be legit industry figures and with that statement and attitude it makes me want to completely stay away from your company. you should ask a little more professional.
hey dude, some people think that but they don't act like an idiot about it... sure personally i don't love everything dumont does. but i dont say shit like " any 8 year olld could beat him up" and that "ill never buy nike shoes again" not the most rational thinking ever.
Dumont is one of the biggest names in our sport, he's brining more people into freeskiing, getting us more attention and a deal with nike is huge, if nike begins developing skiing products we can expect to see some really high performance gear, this part of progression, unfortunately some see it as selling out. I find that kind of lame sure he signed with a big name company, but he's a big name too. Tons of other professional athletes have signed with nike, and nike continues to make great products for those sports.
Nike is a big company yes, but nothing about their business strikes me as particularly shady, they started out small like any company does and grew through strategic marketing, and developing products that speak for themselves. Alot of the nike products i've used are just far superior to alot of other brands, I'm a big fan of the Nike Skateboarding program, not only do there shoes look great, there also extremely comfortable, and last through a beating.
i know what your saying, and i agree nike skateboarding is really dope, however i want nothing to do with dumont and i know that hes probably one of the biggest names in skiing but if i could choose who would represent freeskiing it would NOT be dumont...
selling out? no. not in the least. Former CB resident and Nike 6.0 team manager riley poor is also Dumont's personal videographer. Good friends work well together. It's quite simple. I do the same with my sponsors, i switched over just for the fact that a personal friend got a job with a ski company and knew i could and would work well with him. and it's been great ever since. so, good for dumont. and i don't see how anyone could possibly hate on him, he is beyond sick and does so much for our sport. as for hating on no poles, keep it up. All you no polers do is make us look pathetic. Do you ever see a snowboarder with poles? yes, quite pathetic. case closed, kids.
yeah its great we can all take heart in nikes non shady business practices knowing that there stuff is made by the most skilled 8 year olds malaysia can provide, its great they work long hours and only for a few cents so we get cheap stuff!!!!
i really dont understand why people hate on him. sure he might be an ass sometimes but i garentee most of you guys are asses to people on the hill some of the time and he is sick at skiing. also i dont get how "selling out" is a ;bad thing. if someone offered you a huge contract you would deny it because "im so core". fucking bullshit hes one of the beset and he gets payed a lot casue he has big name sponsors.

yeah dumont doesnt even represent freeskiing at all, he only represents himself cause thats all he cares about. but seriously, dumont may represent like .000001 percent of skiers, there are many better skiers to rep our sport, hell it might be a bad thing that freeskiing is associated with him.
i don't particurally like either of them... i don't hate them either, it's whatever for me.
they are sick skiiers and and do nothing but good things for the SPORT, not it's image
personally, i don't care if the sport gets recognition or not, i'm still going to be doing my thing regardless of how much it's on tv. however, when i tell someone i am a freeskiier and snowboarder, i'd prefer for them to think of someone other than those two, who's a little bit more classy, smart, and/or down to earth, just like i wouldn't want someone to think Barry Bonds and steriods when i tell them i play baseball.
and you can count...on me waiting for you in the parking lot
