"no way dawg! i think I got the same white T but in white at this boutique in soHo. 'cept mine was actually $230, so it surely must be whiter than urz/." - Capurnicus
Even if freeskiing grew 200%, it would still be a niche sport. I bet you asked 100 people to name a snow sports athlete, 95 of them would name a ski racer or Shaun White, or "that guy with the mohawk".
