Ive never posted a thread on here (as you can see Im quite new) but I've been following NS for a while without an account and have been into skiing for a few years now.
Three years ago my friend showed me Revolver (which Im suprised not many people seem to like) and two days later I traded in my snowboard for a pair of Volkl Alleys. It was the best decision I've ever made. I dont get to the hill as much as I used to because I go to school in Mass (I lived in Maine) so I'm still learing.
Heres my problem. Ive been reading the "How Good do you Have to be to Wear Saga" thread and it got me super bummed out. It was all about how people who suck wear Saga and Level 1 and all that type of shit. I dont think anybody sucks at skiing, we just havent had as much time to learn how. Does the fact that I'm still learing how to ski or the fact that I still shit my pants whenever I start to lose control make me less of a "skier"? Should I hang up my Saga and TAF until I can cork 3 or do switch-ups or huck backies?
I think we've gotten really misconstrued in the idea that people "suck" when really we're just learning to progress. You were all there once.
