the reason why you see it in vids is bc those guys are pros which means they have contracts which mean they get free shit which means they can mess up what ever they have and they'll just get new stuff, for free-thats why you go pro!
and no i havent but im looking forward to it once i get new skis, when ever that will be
i tried it at the end of last season on a crappy pair of pocket rockets. I expected to get at least seven or eight slides before the skis were seriously messed up, but after four hits, my uphill edges were totally falling off. So ripped them completely off and it was considerably easier to slide.
when reading freeze a while ago something came up where pro's actually get bonus' for having shots of ledge slides published on top of getting new stuff. this is because people go out and try it and then ruin thier skis that way they need to buy another pair. no joke.
i've slid a few ledges in my day. and by that i mean i have tried 3 and gotten 2 or them. my skis were undamaged (well if they were my mountain skis yes i would call them damaged but they were my urban skis) they got a few scratches and the edges are way gnarly now but they are fine. oh ya they are original Fujees.
haha nah, you could grind cement. It just probably wouldn't be as much fun, and you'd probably bail a lot, and sooner or later a bag would get ripped open, and you'd be covered in the stuff, and it would get mixed with the snow and harden...
