OldDog Not only that, but you totally made me an accomplice to your thread-jacking...

Totally your fault, I had nothing to do with it.

PS: I did just order an SA vid and the free sub!

ShredLife ah ha! gotcha. i will for sure torture these little bastards for as long as i'm able... for me it's the best way to commune with the fish is to be able to catch one and hold it in hand and release it. the hatchery fish i gladly slaughter tho, for conservation reasons..

i do pretty much only fly fish for them so they never really take the fly deep and its a barbless hook so its pretty easy to let em go... i probably sound like i'm trying to convince myself its ok






POW>park.

OldDog Yeah, I know a lot of people who "sport" fish. When I said vegetarian I meant more in the "I don't kill/torture shit for fun" way than the "I don't eat fish way".

But hey, to each their own.

I hope most people who are getting into freestyle will learn to say "baby park," "mini park," "progression park," whatever your favorite PC-term is... It really makes a difference when you are talking about stuff.
I Agree. I also think when someone talks about "wanting to get into park" that they mean they will start with beginner parks and then move into intermediate parks. Not just jump into the big boy parks. I like to ride in the park but intermediate is about as big as I go. The big park at my resort is about the size of a intermediate park at larger resort and is probably part of the reason it is all the more comfortable I am.

We are not as fortunate as other places in the country to have it so good like many of you out-west riders. So many of us are using what we thought were or are regionally correct terms.
I'm really only talking about stuff that is clearly made for people to learn on. You can do some sick tricks on a plain old car tire buried in the snow.

To me, if the park has jib elements aren't ride on (i.e. you need to ollie a gap) and are longer than 5 feet and jumps (it there are any) need to be at least 15 feet long (i.e. you couldn't clear the gap on foot).
