Being out there skiing every day, good or bad, just playing around with friends, with no contests or filming- that is the real spirit of skiing for me. that is why i started skiing, and if i lose those moments that is what will make me stop skiing.
I've got a 'Ride Snowboards' die-cut sticker on my ARV's right now...just to make the kiddies in the liftline think, and I've also got a 'got KT' sticker on one of the tails. But the key to stickers is they have to look like they belong. They have to flow with the grafixxx otherwise they look whack.
'Skimack rips harder than any 'loc''' (VC)
'I'm in his nigger crew' (my little brother in response to my statement that he was in my 'digger crew')
'My knee hurts' (Jeff Merat after grinding a lunch table for an hour instead of sitting in the ski patrol shack for his torm mcl and acl which he got earlier that day.)
'I'm not asking for any help, just maybe for you to get off your ass.'(my dad)
I found a Spitfire sticker clinging for dear life on a bench a the top of a lift (on a snowy day at Mammoth), put it on, went home, covered it very carefully with clear packing tape and three years later it's still there in perfect condition.
if you want stickers to stay on better, hold the ski up side down and run a lighter along the sticker, but not too long or else there will be burn marks
i did this on a super ghetto sticker and it stayed on for pretty much the whole year
ok, stickers are whack unless they work with the graphics. those tms up there are a great example of a bad sticker job. sorry, but they are really ugly. first, make shure the ski is clean. rubbing alcahol, works great. lay the sticker on, and use a hair dryer, especially if you are trying to work around contures. it heats the glue up and makes the vinyl more plyable. oh yeah, use stickers that are printed on vinyl, not paper. thats why they fall off. once you heat it up, squeegee it out, and get it on there. will never come off, unless you want it too. but i think some good custom stencils look way better than stickers.
in science class i sat down to fast and you know how you can sit on your balls. well i did and i sat down really fast and crushed them and right when i sat down i started puking and fell out of my chair. they teacher laughed. i felt like i could pass out i wanted to die.-*NWFT*nUkkA
I still just have no idea how you can mistake your dick and a chicken neck, let alone not realize what you are doing. -manus
stickers are soooooo two years ago. c'mon people, silver jiffys are whats what now
sometimes when im running water to wash dishes or something, i think about how lucky i am to have access to running water and how some people will never know such a simple pleasure.
stickers add character, shows what you like not some design you HAVE to buy. i have stickers for different stuff other than skiing, mainly MJ related bands or some symbol relationg to MJ like a spade or crown.
if noone used stickers then all skis would be the same.
its kinda that question of, why do all snowboards have differnt designs? you may find a few alike but for the most part there are 100's more graphics than on skis.
so i use stickers to distinguish skiers really
Some people talk it, some people live it, some people walk it-some people give it... deal with it.

the whole key to put anything with an adhesisve is that it sould be done in a dry and room temp. room. These are the prime sticking conditions. I bought a sticker in keystone and put it on my skis outside and within the day it was gone
