Its been an exciting week here, and stupidity has raged across the boards. Here to bring you some of the best of the worst, we present to you the winners and nominees of the Golden Wheelchair Designation of Ignorance awards for December 10, 2010.
Third place because I think its a troll, but a funny read at least if so.
if you didnt get to see the NS movement in the US ten years ago, you missed out. skiers werent allowed in the park and moguls skiing and aerials were the only acceptable methods of freestyle skiing (FIS). real freestyle skiing was actually prohibited and frowned upon. more rules from the old country, Europe had created this standard for skiing, until America broke away from their terrible shackles once again with the invention of the snowboard. The light of freedom shined again and the US was once again setting standards and doing things that were actually cool.
Now it seems we've lost our grip on things. The same things that used to make skiing stupid are returning, and it stems from Europe. In America we want style, and freedom, and pure shred. Europe wants aerials, with no style, and someday they will issue an FIS sanctioned trick list barring any deviation from what they think proper style is. this will prove itself in the coming months of halfpipe competition skiing and the never ending road to the olympics.
lets keep america freestyle, and euro ______ the gapers.
Just click the link and read the thread, it speaks for itself...
I was wondering how you'd put the logo of your sponsors company in your edits? Anybody know?
BroPaterno(Bless your soul for trolling with great success)
Copy + Paste them all onto pages in word.
Print out said pages.
Hold the pages in front of camera while you film.
thats the only way? and thatd be hard with gopro
(There seems to be a rash of threads about "broke my ski, how could this ever happen to me" on the boards recently, we could pick out many more but here is the best)
So yesterday I skied for the first time at Sunday River on my new AR7's, I skied just regular terrain for the entire day, and then around 1:30pm, we were told about a small set up with some jibs. Of course we went to go check them out, and they were not big at all, maybe 1 down rail, a flat rail and 2 boxes, nothing special.
So I attempt to hit the down rail first. I hop on, and slide it but get caught up and end up falling forward. So I get up, gather my poles and stuff, and move on, no big deal. Next was a flat rail, it was maybe 2 feet off the round if not less. Now I've progressed in rails for 3 years now, not saying I'm really good or anything but I can do basic tricks, like 270 out both ways, some switch up's, maybe a k fed if I'm lucky. So I'm not even thinking about hitting this rail its just a natural reaction. But as soon as I get both my skis on the rail, my skis did not move and my upper body flew forward, smashing my shoulder into the rail, It hurt like a motha fucka.
Two of my friends were with me and saw it happen, they said I didn't do anything wrong or strange, so I'm just wondering why this could have happened. Maybe the edges on my brand new skis, or something, I really don't know....
If you have any comments I'd appreciate it
This entire thread gets a nomination:
I think what you really need is a DIY (no idea what this stands for). there's a thread on here about ones that NS'ers have built. A wide angle lens would make filming easier but won't reduce shakiness in any sort of way.
Well, thats it for this week, we've had some good times, and I have no doubts we'll have more winners next week. Keep up the stupidity!
