Yeah there is a "core" group of splitboarders who are to snowboarding what telle skiers are to skiing. Humans are funny creatures with a instictual need to feel superior to their fellow man. I hate seeing this attitude developing with snowboarding and I hope that the increased popularity of splitboarding will help keep it real and not go the way of the telle kooks.
What are tele skiers to skiing?
It's ironic that you hate seeing a superior attitude towards others in splitboarding and then talk about keeping it real compared to those tele kooks.
All the telemarkers I know are pretty low key about it. Small sample size I guess?
