as this is my 4th year on this site, i've got to say it gets worse and worse every year.. let me explain..
when i first joined this site in 2005 i thought it was the fucking shit (i still somewhat do). coming on here as a young grom, seeing some videos of some other skiers killing it, pictures etc.. it was all dope. but it was something about the site back then that makes it different then what it is today. granted i have only been around for half as long as NS has existed, but back in 2005, there were way less than half of the number of members that there are now. it just seems that now that NS has truly blown up.. it doesn't feel as much of a "community" as it did with 50,000 members or whatever. now that everyone and their dad has a pair of twin tip skis, it doesn't feel as special to share a connection with a fellow newschooler as it did when I had my first pair of twin tip skis.
i'm sure it also had to do with ATLANTASKI and Lateralis and a few others that made it so good too, but the sad thing is, I bet 90 percent of the kids on here don't even know who Harvey is.
and i really don't mean to sound like a "veteran" to this site, i'm just trying to share my NS experience and how it's changed since i've joined. but i must say, the 50 mb video limit, blogs, reviews, homepage, site layout.. all the new features are fucking dope.
