Snowboarding With Style
I wasn't sure where else to post this, so I figured here was good. This is mostly referring to jumps.
Is it just me, or is snowboarding missing a lot style these days? It seems like we have kids throwing every type of rodeo, backside 7, backflip, frontflip, you name it, but I've yet to see anyone bust out a clean method at my local resort this year. Maybe it's just an East Coast small resort thing, but it kind of bothers me. It's starting to feel like a lot of the soul in snowboarding is becoming lost in mainstream nonsense.
Sure, rodeos and flips are cool, but I kind of find myself laughing when I meet people who can do them that can't even method, crail, or tweak an indy with a shifty.
As I said before, maybe it's just an East Coast small resort thing, but it's just something I've noticed lately. What are your guys' thoughts on this? Is it happening where you live too?
