If you find a ski slope that is not filled with people who think they're better than you because they can snowboard then you have found yourself a place of sheer heaven and happiness.
Snowboarder 2: Hey, look at my. I'm the fucking best, i just went down that mountain. I can now climb Mount Everest with my eyes closed.
Snowboarder 3: I'm the best, everyone else is a peasant.
Normal person: What a bunch of dicks. I'll just go golfing instead. Fucking snowboarders.
Written by a snowboarder.
dont bitch and whine about skiers all the time- they can be just as cool as us
dont hog up the park all day and sit down in landings
shred the pow when possible
can ride whatever they feel like and dont hate on other riders who rip on different stuff then they do, unless the rider ONLY does park (some people like backcountry more, some like park more, some like inbounds more, but a good mix is what i like).
ride to have fun, to live life. (and they can do this w/friends)
(and also, shawn white is a great rider, and im not hatin, but he isnt the only great one. ever heard of guys like craig kelly, or antti autti?)
yes we have our own language. dont start hatin because you dont know what ill, shred, pow, gnar, and such means.
we're creative enough to make our own diction, assholes
Snowboarder: slang. Slang amongst skiers meaning: take cover.
Slang example: *Hears rough whooshing sound from up the mountain*. "Snowboarder!" *moves to avoid collison.*
a. SHRED IT UP!!! Pulls sick tricks like triple backflip to 7000 degree turn while grabbing their board in five different places!!!!
b. slide to the middle of a good run, sit down, ruin the run and never leave. (Perhaps waiting for hell to freeze over?)
b. People that call themselves snowboarders but in reality need to be run over, hit, called bad names, cursed at, and generally hurt
