ski_salmon69I can’t fucking stand skiing with people with a weird vibe. Like I was skiing with this kid the other day, and he was low key super mean. He would talk shit on people all day, and would like criticize every little thing about people’s skiing. Like c’mon, they’re like 8 year olds, so what if they’re straight airing jumps. And having a conversation was impossible because he thought he was right about literally everything. Like dude stfu and just have some fun, fucking chill out
This sort of thing has been bugging me a lot lately. People need to learn shut off their ego and just be psyched that everyone is having fun. You don’t need to be a critical dick all the time.
At the tow rope rail park this weekend there was this little kid, probably 7 or 8, trying to learn rails. He kept bailing out after going off the lip and he would land straddling the rail. Some guy was like “Wtf is up with this dumb kid nut sliding the rail.” I was like “Chill man, he’s just having fun and tying to learn, we all have to start somewhere” and the guy was like “I don’t fucking care, if he’s in my way I’m going to plow him over”. This really rubbed me the wrong way.
If someone doesn’t understand park etiquette or is standing in a landing, that’s one thing, but please even in those situations just nicely explain to the kid how they shouldn’t do what they’re doing. Be a mentor not an ass.
