Say some random beginner guy on the hill is having trouble, how many people are likely to go over and give advice?
It may not be totally accurate. I do a ton of research on whatever I have interest in and seek out any and all sources.
A couple seasons ago some random beginner guy was having trouble and his friends bailed on him. He ended up on blue trails. I felt so bad for him as I witnessed his edge slams and attempts to flat-base down just so it would be over faster.
So I helped him a bit. I was riding solo so it was fine to take the time to help him out. One of his friends offered to pay me. I refused of course but the beginner guy was so grateful to have some tips and not to have died.
