you guys make a very good point saying that no matter how many 'posers' and little shit head stuck up rich boys enter our sport in years to come you gotta just keep doin what your doin because you love it.
but its hard to ignore and something has to be done when the time comes. right now skiing is unspoiled. its at its peak in the skier's minds cuz its progressing every time somebody clicks in but its still low key so its like our own thing. thats what makes most people freeski. theres nothing wrong with falling in love with a sport becasue its not as exposed as others and you wanted to be different. thats what its all about.
now be honest here.you see ten snowboarders sitting down watching another snwoboarder jump. the one jumping does a flailing 180 with no grab and barely lands and the group of boarders sitting down all start laughing and ripping on the kid in the worst way. then one of them goes up and doesnt do any better. doesnt that just rub you the wrong way? is that how you want our sport to be? i dont know about you guys but thats just not cool, even if it doesnt bother you. its still there and its fucked up because it tottaly breaks down the unity of people that participate in the sport. i dont see many skiers rippin on people for doin a sloppy trick they are just learning. most skiers help eachother out and are always pushing eachother. and we all need to keep it that way and stop talking trash about everybody cuz we dont want to end up like 80 percent of the snowboarders out there now do we? when little 'poser' kids come into our sport, dont hate. just encourage and show some respect and mabye you will receive some and they will spread it around as well. its all about unity and repsect on the mountain and skiing will stay where it is right now amongst the real riders no matter how much it blows up. im out
