i would just like to share my thoughts and experience of catfish on newschoolers. I'm from albany, ny but relocated to Syracuse. (forewarned i am pretty high and ranting)
In the past i had often reach out on NS to find new kids to ride or film with. In most cases i have great sucess finding where real jibninja's are at but lately it has been the opposite.
I understand how kids can exagerate..... but dont lie or be confrontational.
i made several threads to find central ny skiers.... of the many responses i had many negative nancy's trashing my skiing. telling me oh if you ride with us you'll get hurt..... oh you cant hit urban blah blah blah
since the start of febuary i have meet several NS users..... many of these kids have pictures of grab spins corks flips and technical jibs............now i didnt now set high standards by any means the riding in CNY is far below my standards... killy MT snow Bromley.. lastly jiminy peak.
Upon riding with several different groups of kids who were trashing me online, i came to learn why newschoolers is the real catfish
... so i invited some riders i though were better than me, after my 15+ years skiing park theres not many features i wont do. I have ridden across the USA.. Park city tahoe and Carinthia
Urban: everyone says they do urban. now i have done probally 12 differnt large handrails, even got charged for tresspassing at the Doane Steward rail garden ( private school that looks like Hogwarts )
Reality: suddenly after several days of trashing me i realized i didnt have 10 skiers....
i had 10 kids that wanted to film, because they were tired, didnt feel like it, oh its sketchy, dont want to hurt my skis.
---- werent y'all just telling me i was going to get hurt if i rode the urban you do.
Park: past week i have skied 3 times experimenting with new NS users, crews to ride with.
the park set up was nothing crazy, i would compare it to a bunny rail garden and small jumps getting up to 40 feet.
now all the rails i did switch, sw 270's inverted all the jumps. hippie killed the flat boxes
my new "buddy's" have some crazy tricks on their profile, and photo's claiming "pre" 450 out "cork 7" you get what im saying.
Reality: why werent my buddies hitting any featues at all. im doin this shit backwards high and with beers in my sweatshirt.
P.S. everyone claimed they got nugs, didnt even want to get smoked up wtf
IF YOU LIVE IN CNY LIKE TO SKI HIT A BROTHER UP
