To shred is to snowboard down a mountain in absolute style. Carving, bombing and just absolutely destroying the pow. Chuckin roosts is a favorite by most shredders.

Shredders don't give a fuck, They have any answer for every question, answers usually consisting of "fuck it lets shred' and "Do you even roost?".

Skiiers DO NOT shred

Shredology is the study of shredding, It can be learnt only on the mountain, and taught by very few.
