Before you think this is just some dumb thread, I really would like to raise some serious questions...
First of all, I would like to say that I am credible in all three of the aforementioned categories, having spent countless hours watching, and doing these things.
All of these things are becoming overly saturated and desensitizing everyone
At skiing, skateboarding, and porns conception, there were elaborate movies, with skits, even plots and characters: Skiing had Glen Plake's personality and movies like the blizzard of ahhs and had a plotline, etc.. Skateboarding had powell peralta movies with skits and long intros, and porn had old porn movies that even would have more than a minute or two of dialogue before the porn. These longer projects can paint elaborate pictures and tell stories, that cannot be captured in the mere 2 minute youtube clips and instagram edits that are becoming increasingly popular in skiing.
Think about all the free content in #everyoneisgoodatskiing2015 youtube alone has top pros churning out web projects like the big picture, good company, la familia, and constant hammers from the hoodcrew, goodnough, along with web contests like gopro line of the winter and x games real ski. And all the instagram edits that come daily and are forgotten after scrolling through all of the other posts.
I just want to ask, Have we gone too far?
I personally find it almost harder to enjoy skiing content now because there is so much of it. It's hard not to be jaded in #everyoneisgoodatskiing2015
Can we do anything about this? probably not
To quote Skate legend jeff grosso "go and do your homework because theres enough footage on youtube to choke a horse"
