Hitting concrete as a rail
I always see edits of pros or whoever sliding down the top of a concrete wall like a rail. Doesn't this completely destroy your skis?
Yeah, no worries for them though. As their sponsors will hand them a new pair after haha
No. It only wrecks snowboards, not skis
Plenty of goat semen keeps your skis in decent shape.
So even like Hood crew, Stept, Level 1, etc get new skis all the time even though they aren't individual pros? Because I'd imagine all the wall rides and stairs and asphalt they slide would take base and edge off in no time at all.. Like when you see the sparks coming off their edges on wall rides! Ah it just makes me cringe as someone who tunes their skis..
it actually doesn't do much, I have fucked around on skis in a concrete skate park going down the little walls and vert while doing urban around town and after that was finished I was expecting there to be a lot of edge cracks, core shots etc but I didn't see anything. But now my edge is separating from the sidewall, doubt it was from the urban though.
concrete ledges etc. can destroy your gear (if they arent frozen/waxed) but for snowboarding, most of the jib/urban boards have extruded base so repairing is cheap and easy.
it's really not that bad. yeah it eats up edges a bit, but it's not like we get new skis after every feature. i usually only go through 2 pairs of urban skis a season.
You better not have hit urban with those sexy hand crafted skis !
i did, even slid a concrete ledge with them. they're holding up so far!
The amount of trolling that has come from your account recently is astonishing
I don't troll... i'm just incredibly stupid
I think sometimes they put like water or snow on the concrete and it makes it slippery
most people who are not pros have a pair or 2 of urban skis witch are totally destroyed to begin with to hit features like that.
