Replying to Why do so many aggressive inliners snowboard, and skiers skateboard
It doesn't make any sense. There are blading legends who would instantly be killers at park skiing but who choose to snowboard instead. A lot of bladers I know also snowboard. It pisses me off to an unhealthy degree. I don't really have a problem with skiers skateboarding tho.
One of my skier friends started blading a little while ago and in his first few days could already do 270 to frontside/backside both ways forwards and fakie. Whereas when a skier starts skateboarding or a blader starts snowboarding they have to start from scratch. Why would you do that? Skateboarding also takes so much dedication it's more worth it to cross train at a sport which has skills that transfer over a lot more.
inb4 someone says "bc blading is gay" haha dude very funny and clever
