steezyclezyWith the season over in the northern hemisphere, the month has been filled with season edits of many different types of skiing. Sitting here watching them be so much better than me hurts. They probably have about 5x as much skiing time as me, and have better facilities (e.g. a mountain)but i cannot stop the pain. the truth is i could be that good, but im not. i try to click on the one's with less votes to cheer myself up but even they are far beyond my level. Does anyone feel me?
Deal with it. Location has been a significant factor forever but the $$$ is def starting to add into it. If you're parents can get coaching for you and send you to camp for 2 or 3 weeks in the summer and whatever else it's going to help you. That said there are still a ton of hungry kids out there killing it just as hard without that $.
If you want it, you have talent, and you work for it you can get good.
Build a ballin summer settup. Instead of being depressed watching edits of people that are better than you, learn from them. There's a reason the level of skiing is in another world than 15 years ago. It's not because people are growing up with magical powers. People grow up seeing whats been done and they know that something is possible.
You might see an edit and think, wow that's fucking nuts. Instead of getting down go learn it. Build a summer setup, ski with better kids at your mountain in the winter.
Maybe try and get a job at one of the summer camps. Maybe go to the southern hemisphere for the off season one year.
Don't forget to have fun though. If you're having fun, skiing with friends and trying new tricks you'll get better.
