I think the switch is where Poutanen and I disagree. Nerds aren't the only skiers now because you can rock the same snowboarder style.

I'm not sure how to respond to the article because while I do agree that snowboarding has lost a lot of its "rebel cachet," it has simultaneously become way more accessible to the average person. Which is important because that helps the economic side of things, and why it seems really silly to me to worry about what it means to be "core." Especially if we want to see the snowboard industry grow and innovate.
