good man way to do a report on skiing!!!!!!
i think that skiing in the future will continue to evolve and progress more and more and more. i do not know where the freeskiing or rather skiing industry is headed at the present time but i think freeskiing will become more mainstream and eventually become corupt with sellouts and people who are just in it for the money. that has already begun but i think we will also see alot of small independent companies comming out that are just to the progression of our side of the sport.
many things could change but really it is up to us and the future freeskiers and even their youth to explore our sport for the fullest extent of the possibilities.
skiing could eather continue to be underground or begin to get more mainstream like i mentioned above. in a few years there will be a "pro boom"
as i like to call it becasue all the young youth like myself (15 years old) and even younger like 10-12 year olds will become to become pro athletes in the sport. this will boost the industry to an all time high and will rack in big bucks for the industry.
people at the present time are supporting the movement and dont even know it with snowboarders bying skiing-brnad clothing and sporting it like they know what they are talking about but reall they are supporting skiing and not snowboarding so this is generating more $$$$ for our industry.
i literally could go on for pages so i am going to cut it short.
if i think of anything worthy of your report i will psot it in the future.
ps....for tons of info of where the industry was and on of the most influetial companies in freeskiing to date go to www.lineskis.com
and go to the story of how line got started by Jason levinthal...one of my personal skiing heros....also get lots of quotes from tanner hall and glen plake and stuff like that just becasue of how contriversal tanner is to the sport.
hope i helped
