god damn it ok you dont need permission from us. if you dont want poles then dont use them.
i personaly think poles look better. i ride with no poles for fun somtimes
1. go to top of park, find tree or something else you can use to hide items
2. take pole straps off of wrist
3. place poles behind object from #1
4. ski without poles
5. decide if you like it more with or without poles
6. kill self
again, follow these^
I hate to join in on this thread because this is the millionth time it was asked...but, I will say that some people can look super good in park w/o poles. IMO you have to be super steezy to pull it off and not look gay, but if you are not filming and prefer it for learning, then go without, no need to ask permission!! I may spend a bit more time next year w/o poles since I will actually be spending a good amount of time in park and it can help progressing.
Lastly, MUCH, MUCH WORSE than no poles is poles that never touch the ground. If you use those, go give them to a 4 year old on the bunny slope! It's like you don't know how to use poles, but want to have something worthless in your hand because you are embarresed that you don't want to use poles.
This thread is ultimate summer ns
There is hate everywhere bahaha
I know there are a a ton of other threads on this but i just thought i'd give you my two cents and it is to just give it a go and if you dont like it then just pick up your poles again plain and simple. I do it all the time sometimes i just dont feel like having them so i ditch them. Do what ever you feel is right bud.
