I ride both skis and boards. I would like to see the day when they are basically the same sport and it's just a matter of if you feel like riding one or two planks that day. Obviously there are things you can do on skis that you can't do on a board and vice-versa and this has been stated time and time again. But, none the less our sports, styles, clothing even cultures for that matter are so similar that there really isn't any need nor cause for hating. If you really hate boarders so much, why don't you watch their tricks and try better them on skis. That way you'll be talking with your steez and not your mouth. That earns a lot more respect.
But what if the Hookey Pookey isn't what "it's all about?" Then what?!?!?!?!
