Before I met my boyfriend, who's on NS, I always thought that snowboarding was the "cooler" sport. To be honest, I never knew freestyle skiing existed. I always thought that on skis, you just went down the mountain, and all of the freestyle events were snowboard exclusive. Every time I had gone snowboarding, I saw "snowboard park" or something along those lines. Recently, my boyfriend made me watch the Dew Tour and X Games with him. I was amazed. I seriously cannot see how anyone can justify the fact that snowboarding is better than skiing. Last night, as I was watching the x games, I realized almost nobody landed their tricks clean. My boyfriend was laughing, and I remembered the night before watching skiing big air being absolutely blown away. Everything was perfect, landed perfect, and the snowboarders were in the air for half the time and couldn't land a 1080 as opposed to a switch 1440. Also, switch on skis looks way tougher than switch on a snowboard.
He took me skiing for the first time last month, and it was 5000x better than snowboarding. I snowboarded four times, hated it, skied once and can't wait to go back. So hi Newschoolers, im excited.
