When you see some one with 300+ twins with no poles on the bunny hill.
I am not against no poles, but 300+ twins for beguiners? Its wrong. They can barely ski and they wouldn't dare go in the park.
Today I saw a fat kid in jeans, sunglasses, stocking hat and a grey sweater on 06 fujatives. He had no poles to. And he sucked. I asked him if he would go in the park and land backwards. He said he would never do it.
Sure its contributing money to the sport. But he should have been on normal k2 skis untill he gets good enough. You know still contibute but not make our sport look goofy.
I know "you gotta start somewere" but come on You know you die a little inside when you see someone like that.
It goes on and on. I am not mad I am just sad. I want this sport to be big in park and backcountry. And these kids buy them because they 'LOOK' cool. Its fun and should be enjoyed by all. But the store should tell the buyer what he or she is buying.
I just had to let this out. Otherwise this would have turned to hate and I would be ripped on for being a jerk. Now I can get ripped on for being a disapointed jerk.
