This morning, Boulder got dumped with snow for the second week in a row. My homie Spencer unfortunately got destroyed last Friday and isn't going to be able to shred rails with us for a little while. It's a fucking bummer..
This thread is dedicated to the fools who were at my house last thursday decked the fuck out in Jibberish. When I asked them about the shred, they said they hadn't been hitting any rails cause the snow was sticky, they had new skis... or some other bulshit. FUCK JIBBERISH, FUCK SAGA, FUCK FIRST DROP... GO HIT SOME MOTHAFUCKING HERBAN AND QUIT WORRYING ABOUT WHAT SETUP YOU HAVE/ WHICH MODEL OF NEXT YEARS SKIS YOU'RE RIDING.
There is absolutely no excuse not to be hitting rails when there's this much snow outside. If you can't make it up to the hill, or don't have a heli to fly you to the Kamchatka Peninsula (this is in Russia)
get down with some Fresh Baked Shred and hit some rails an jibs around your neighborhood.
For those of you who unfortunately don't have a shitton of snow outside the window in your ridiculously boring class about russian revolutions, go the ice rink, get some snow, and ski. LJ has proved that you don't need any snow to hit rails
Herban can be fucking gnarly. Spencer was unfortunately the first one to hit that close-out and it didn't go too well. I later hit the rail and it was definitely the most scary/ intimidating feature I've ever hit. There's so many opportunities for shit to go wrong. This close-out gave me a much better appreciation for all the shots in Stept movies. When there's nonstop back-to-back bangers of crazy rail features, you start to lose a sense of how ridiculous these setups are. Half the rails Cam Riley hits are features that noone else gets down on.
The real excuse for not hitting rails outside is because it's fucking scary (and perhaps dangerous). If that's the reason you're rolling around to halloween parties dressing all swaged out like a fucking skier poser, admit it to yourself and shred the new snow outside. You're going to have to take some risks but that what life's about. If you're not ready for a given jib, don't hit it and set up something more mellow. There's endless opportunities of jibs/rails everywhere so find something that you're comfortable with and work your way up to this..
and then this...
If you're not getting down on the white girl covering the streets, go blow some hannah montana in the warmth of your home and k-fed some flat boxes the next time you happen to make it up to the hill.
get off newschoolers, quit photoshopping pictures of how you want your new setup to look and
GO HIT SOME MOTHAFUCKING HERBAN
Thankyou for your time
