I used to think skiing was "gay" when I was in high school. I have recently sold both my boards and bought a sick pair of twin tips and picked it up pretty quick, and I can't believe I boarded that long. I had no idea, I was just being ignorant because most of my friends boarded so why wouldn't I? Lol. I am so glad know how much better skiing is now. I have also noticed this to be sort of a trend lately, boarders going back to skiing, I think because the new skis look alot cooler than the old school single tipped ski, and the fact that the skiers are going bigger than the boarders now. Thank god I have seen the light.
