The.FishMy father told me in cant ski park unless i pay the medical bills. My sister does gymnastics and has had 6 surgeries inclu acl and mcl. he says its cause skiing isnt a "legit sport". Advice? Downhill skiing on a 250 vertical is awful.
#1 - Point out the fact that Slopestyle is the hottest new Olympic sport on the block. Sure, here on NS we like to say "Fuck FIS" and I'm a proud non-supporter of the Olympics... but when talking to parents that don't get it its perfect. Cite how if you keep it up, maybe one day you could be part of the next USA Olympic Podium Sweep
. That is an ESPN link - focus mainly on the Olympic aspect of things... don't mention its actually cool too if you're into the real side of this shit.
#2 - If you don't have success with #1, see if he'd be interested in a conversation with a high-ranking person in the media side of skiing. I'd fucking LOVE to field a call from you dad if I can back you up. I'm even a Dad myself, so I can speak adult fluently.
Any way you shake it - chin up bud. You'll be alright.
"Hopefully it comes back the right way in skiing too.
Less rotations. More STYLE."
