snowboard is not "gopro gear"

you need a gadget on a pole in your other hand so you can pay even less attention to snowboarding while you are trying to learn it.

despite the comment on the youtube page, I suspect its going to be more wreck vids for awhile.

go find the gopro forums.

sorry, I am your e-nemesis, you gopro enthusiast, capturer of useless video and hero of snowboarders looking like skiers yardsaling everywhere. I cannot tolerate your kind and the lord of darkness has sent me on a mission to destroy.

I thought he was KTFO.

Anyway, gotta agree with Klinger here. Learn to ride before sticking a camera in our face while riding what appears to be a green(?) trail.

LOL! Nice faceplant!

I applaud your willingness to leave your ego at the door and post your fails here! Always entertaining!

However, I think if you are still just learning to ride,...? The comments so far are appropriate. Get the skill & muscle memory down before splitting your attention between riding and trying to be Quentin Tarantino.

Just so you know that I am not just busting your balls for kicks,.. I did the same thing and posted a few really,.. REALLY lame vids of myself my first season or so. Being an "Old Fart" and quite frankly pretty amazed that I was able to be doing this at all, I was soooo proud of my lame little one inch ollies and painfully awkward & slow Midwest Blue runs, etc! LOL! Took a little grief for those clips too.

...HiYa SK!

I will even admit to doing the whole Gapper,... "Is it on? Can you see the light? Is it blinking" schtick before I realized just how incredibly STUPID a person looks and sounds asking that!


...For me, now, I mostly use those lame clips to help other newbs when they post here that they are worried that they will never "get it!" I can show them how awkward & clumsy you can be in those first few weeks or months, and how quickly you can get comfortably proficient in the basics once it "clicks!"

I do like the fact that I have a pretty decent video record of my progression, but unless and until I can get some footage of myself involved in some RAD riding or some truly deep and epic POW? (...still a ways off btw,) I've decided to limit my public video postings on the forum to those of asking for critiques on my technique and/or sharing my painful learning experiences with other newbs!



...still, it was a pretty funny fail! Ice and Advil!

Ugh another person with a camera pointed at them that is paying too much attention to it and not their inability to ride. Next time just ride into a rail full speed, snap your femur, and never ride or upload your video again.

I couldn't believe how many gapers and even more experienced people were rocking 1 if not 2 go pros during christmas vacation at Heavenly. The trails were so crowded... the only reason I could think of to wear them was for lawsuits when some fucker ran in to you at 50 mph.
