So I know a lot of people throw the word "poser" around. The word "poser" to me, means a kid that has really good gear, and just sits around the park and doesn't hit anything. But, I think that a lot of people use it the wrong way. Like, when you see a kid with ill gear fall bad on an easy box. I think that as long as you're seriously trying, then you're not a poser. Because to some kids, things comes harder than others. And if I was that kid who was trying that box and fell, and some older freeskiers were talking shit and calling me a poser and saying that I sucked, then I would be really pissed, and it would change my attitude about skiing.
This brings me to my other point... I think that people should be less harsh in the NS videos. Some kid might have a very succesful first year in his eyes and post an edit, and it gets bashed to shit. Now, his attitude on skiing is changed greatly, and some people on NS have even left because of their videos getting bashed.
I think that we should all just ski and let ski. And worry about ourselves, not other kids that we don't even know.
