Alot of people talk about how snowboarding is gay, and how skiing would have changed by itself if there wasn't snowboarding, and also that snowboarders are gay. I don't know about you, but skiing would be no where without snowboarding. As hard as it is to recognize that its true. Just look at the path our movies are taking, and the style of our tricks and the type of tricks we are doing. All snowboarding moves are super stylie spins and simple but super complicated tricks. Skiing is going in that direction. No matter how cool a d-spin 1260 is, a unnatural corked 540 oppisite grab is so much better. So much more style. Skiing is still so many year behind snowboarding, that we still have so many years till it plateaus. And to those of you you say snowboarders are fags. Fuck You. I have met just as many skiers on the hill as snowboarders that are cocky pieces of shit, that put other skiers and snowboarders down. Its fuckin gay. Not to many in Whistler, but at Cop in calgary there are to many to count. I ski with snowboarders whenever I go, I look to snowboarders on info on how to preform a trick. They are just as cool as skiers and deserve ample respect. As do we. Skiing has came so farin the last 5 years, and has a huge life ahead of it. By saying snowboarders are gay and that they suck, its like telling your mentor they are stupid and they suck. They are the reason we have gotten this far. If you look at the pro level, they are all friends. Its just some cocky little shits that are talking bad. Same with skiing. I hate skiers just as much as I hate snowboarders, and I like snowboarders, just as much as I like skiers. There is just a small number on both sides, which are assholes and will relize soon enough, the shit they are talking isn't getting them far, and they will shut-up.
