In the wake the controversy surrounding my last thread, i decided to have a laugh.
Alright, so we all sucked at park at one point and admired and aspired to be like the badasses who had enough courage to hit the seemingly huge features (from the height of our 10 year old heads).
As a kid, i was never the ballsy one when it came to park but i loved hitting the smaller jumps and getting air off rollers. But there was one thing i never did.
From a young age i learned how nice park skiers can be, laughing on the lift when you fall trying new things etc and so therefore i would stay clear away from features i knew i could not hit.
So what is the deal with the gapers of today? Are we becoming to nice as a community, or do these kids have wicked self confidence? They don't feel lame riding up to a feature and seemingly pussying out? Enlighten me because i, like all the gapers share the desire for flight, but not of the side of a rail I'm to pussy to hit.
So NS, i task you with studying the movement and mental patterns of the gaper in its natural habitat and reporting back.
