This did bother me with my 09 Burton Custom, as the top sheet scratches so easily. Now I have my NS SL - I don't care as the top sheet is very robust compared to the Custom. Why doesn't every company do this?

Yes like others have said, if it's a noob and not intentional that's one thing, but if it's some punk kid doing it on purpose, he will be face first in the snow before he knew WTF just happened.

Its not top sheet stuff that bugs me..its when they bang into my damn edge that it pisses me off...

Even NS boards arent immune to this i looked at my SL-R a week or two ago and realized i have like 4 or 5 short short gashes on the topsheet/edge where people gashed me..annoying as hell...i had to cut some of the bits off with a razor blade so they dont pull up more this season...

Usually i dont mind if someone accidentally does it trying to move forward in line..they usually say sorry and we continue onto the lift...its the idiots who bounce around in lift lines like its a fucking skate park to do standing presses and crap with 1 foot in that annoy me...

Atleast most lifties stop people from doing this now, and also keep people from slapping their boards repeatedly...once or twice to get a ton of snow off is fine if its a pow day...but stop slapping your board for no reason its annoying as shit. I heard a lifty tellin a kid to stop and why..apparently its because people who wear ear implants to hear have the sound magnified a ton by the device and it can damage their ear...

Eh, for me the slapping of the board was a big annoyance more than anything. You get kinda jumpy as a lifty seeing as how you kinda have peoples lives in your hands (mostly stupid peoples lives, but still). So for me, if I was in "the zone" and someone slapped their board, I would just kinda freak that something had just gone wrong. Same with people yelling to other people in liftlines. I don't hear the words, I just here someone yelling, making me think someone is hanging off a chair and about to fall to their death if I don't do something about it in the next 5 seconds...

nope, not enough. some people are too stupid, violence works on the ignorant. Idiocy comes with a physical pricetag. Atleast if it doesnt they know itll cost them next time around.

When someone runs over my board and clearly looks like they have the control and common sense not to I politely say "Hey, stop fucking running into my board"

But for the most part I am too chill and rockin tunes to even give a shit unless it's continuous and deliberate
