Jim I totally agree with you around that idea that individual style should be encouraged when snowboarding. I just posted those videos up to possibly get someone out there excited about technical riding. I think something the sport of snowboarding really lacks are good video examples of proficient riding outside of the park. There are plenty of videos out there showing people doing tricks off jumps or jibbing rails. Don't get me wrong these videos are really cool, but there are hardly any videos out there of people completing their turns on steeps, truly riding dynamic, or carving on a freestyle setup. I think if people were aware of higher level riding they would think "man I want to ride like that!" and pursue it -take lessons, become instructors, or watch more videos at work.
