Hey guys... ive been a member on newschoolers for quite a bit of time and when i first saw this website i saw gold. endless ski videos and a community i fit into really well. This website meant so much to me. New friends, new tricks, new people, new companies. It all seemed really great...
But then, as i started to think about it, i realized that i do not sign into newschoolers for all the right reasons. The reasons the Admins probably thought of when they first made this website. this holy grail of potential. Instead, I started seeing kids tearing apart other skiers because of colors of their jackets, quality of their videos, and music choice. Honestly? MUSIC CHOICE. ITS SKIING!
Why do we have to over fantasize skiing with all of this fancy ass editing, making sure your Season edit has the PERFECT name, and paying someone hundreds of dollars to shoot and edit our video that will still get torn apart, criticized, and rejected.
Guys this is not what skiing is about. We have been seeing many threads popping up talking about this. And i agree with them. Im not expecting much to change with this thread. im a nobody. You all hate on Nobody's. They only people you care about are Orang Names. But just keep in mind that when Twall and all the OG's that were throwing down in the early 2000's, they werent throwing stupid effects into their edits at that time. it was about capturing as much of what their believe of fun was. being with friends, pushing eachother to do harder shit, laughing when it failed, and trying it again.
I am tired of seeing some unheard of kid on here posting pictures and only getting 4 thumbs up's when their is another person on here who is doing the same trick but has a $6,000 camera and some editing skills who gets over a hundred. Skiing isnt about the amount of likes you get, but honestly.. why not support our skiing community. why are there these "classes"
Everyone is guilty of these mentioned actions. Please just give it a thought before you push on through to posting a negative comment of down voting. Skiing is about fun, friends, and being free. Not hate
