Am i the only one who feels like all these kids are saying a surtain ski/company is better then others just cause it is what they have/ their parents bought them. Like for example last week on my mountain i was talking to these kids about skis, they had scratches, and i was on my invaders. and i mentioned that i also had a pair of chronics. and one kid replied "yeah, chronics break too easy for me".. and at first i thought he ws joking! but he was serious. and later he got around to saying how invaders catch edges super easy!! both statements totally opposite of the truth! but he says that stuff because he doesnt like line, because he rides rossignols! and amost all these kids say "rossignols are better!" "k2's are better" "armada's are better!" etc. because thats what they ride!.. why is this? i cant believe people do shit like this but i see it all the time!
I bash Line (especially Invaders) becuause they are shitty and fall apart. I support Volkl and K2 because it is what I ride and they make badass solid skis skis that hold up pretty well. I'm biased, so what?
alot of pople aer like u kevo who have had bad experiences with a certain ski company and no longer support ehm...i would do the same thing im not saying ur wrong...i am one of the fortuate ones that have never had a problem with line skis, or have seen a problem with line skis first hand (except for the 1260s a few years back which exploded everywhere)
kids just see whats infront of them...they see a whole line of cracked edges and delaming skis after every pair and then they think "why should i continue to spend MY money on a ski compnay that si just going to fall apart?" and i do the samwe thing. they have the right to be pissed off that their skis fell apart and that their money was wasted. everyone has done it at least once dude u cant say u havent...
I had some old guy in the lift line yesterday standing behind me, trying to read what brand of skis i was on, he kept saying forfernt or something about my 4frnts, I had to turn around and tell him, then he said to his wife, "never heard of them, must be some sportchek brand"
i bash line, armada, 4frnt, ninthward, liberty and all the other "core" companies that put out a shitty product, i also rip salomon cause every pair of their skis i have ever owned has blown up in less than a year. on the other hand i hype up companies like k2, fischer and volkl who put out a really good product even if they don't have the street cred of the smaller companies. all of these so called core companies rope kids with advertising and sponsorship and then put out a shitty product and kids buy it and then hype it cause they think it's cool
every company does it, and companies like fischer that don't have street cred use people like you to hype them up and u try to make it look cool to not like core companies, so ur just as bad as the kids who love core companies
now i am 14 but my parents sure as hell dont pay for my shit, i pay for everything skiing related i own. i like to call myself a self built freestyler. but little fuck tards like them shouldnt be dissing stuff like that, especially if they are wrong. Chronics are very durable skis! im not sure about rossi, but that kid is a friggin loser.
Ive been pretty loyal to k2 for all my freesking shit, started with the first enemy, it delamed, got a new pair, they delamed, got the PE, I snaped it in half, got another pair, they are pretty fucked but holding together and then I got the fujis and they are rocking my world
