Well I liked it! Yeah, most people can't be arsed watching something like that which is really just a memento for you and your mates, but I like those kind of clips. Other posters will be bored cos, let's be honest, the riding is hardly exciting. Me, I thought the editing was cool, the music good and I like seeing "boring" clips of people just enjoying themselves and getting a feel for a trip. Nice edit (no comment on the boarding - we don't all have to be pros, we just have to enjoy ourselves! Doesn't mean anyone else will want to watch us, well, not being pros, so don't be offended by the others - it's understandable!)

It looks like you were having fun and that's what matters in those kind of edits!

Your biggest error was posting after powder runs by baconzoo and dreampow, AND after a Cro/Parks and Wrecks edit. Many edits pale by comparison..

Cro is especially a tough act to follow. Wait for a few pages to pass before posting after him

Its like moms who watch food tv and all of a sudden think they are gonna open a restaurant with a little bacon and truffles. I just don't get everyone with intermediate or below skills running around with cameras. I would guess you spent more time editing, choosing a song and fucking with your non snowboarding gear than you do snowboarding.

I just don't get it?

Not trying to be a dick but it seems like Gopro is a hobby unto itself which is fine, but all the noob snowboarders should realize a couple things:

1. your camera obsession is in the way of your snowboard progression

2. nobody wants to watch your bad snowboarding except your girlfriend and mom (and that's assuming they don't know the sport)

3. you look awesome with your camera on the hill when we are watching you film your inablity to link turns.



I know this sounds really dicktastic, and all that matters is having fun, but if you want to put in on the internet and ask strangers what we think?

There it is.

*you can blame the start of this conflagration in my mind on those jerkoffs who did a season edit of terrible riding, drinking, and slamming into innocent strangers on teh greens. It may even be in this thread somewhere.

Also reminds me of the tourists a couple years ago that had to get rescued off the Sawtooth on Mt. Bierstadt in a blizzard wearing bike shorts and flip flops. I may seem harsh, but snowboarding is dangerous on every single level and people die on the mountain all the time.

KNOWWWHAADDDAMEAN?!?!?!

*is it young people and the youtube generation? Maybe I'm just too old.

Oh and I know this thread is for everyone to post their bad edits lol.

I never understand the negative reaction to noobs or intermediates filming on the mountain. It's fun and nice to have. End of. Why shouldn't they have a memento of their time on the mountain, or spend time putting together edits if that's what they enjoy? You're right, it can be a hobby. Or it can be a laugh, or people can just like watching them and their mates back, same as looking at old photos or snaps from holidays or big events is enjoyable. Why anyone else cares, never mind takes issue with it as many do, is beyond me. It's not, for the most part, for anyone else but themselves and if someone else (like me!) enjoys it then great.

Seen your edit: again, what harm did it do? I wouldn't expect you to enjoy it and the same point I made in my first post about most not wanting to see equally applies. But I'm sure that poster had fun putting their edit together and enjoys watching it. And isn't that what it's all about?

Also worth pointing out that the thread started out with an edit that contained nothing special but was praised - because it was 2008 and youtube/vimeo/forums weren't completely full of edits perhaps, and 5 years on people have higher expectations. I dunno

Just because I'm trying to not be a dick doesn't mean that I'm not one

I stand by my statement that the camera is in the way if you are not a decent rider already, regardless of what you do with the footage. I realize you may not care what I think, but I see it all the time on the mountain, people with very little ability to dodge trees and others, fliming or playing with their gopro. To me this is a silly endeavor, but as I said, maybe the Gopro is half or more than half the hobby and I just don't get it. Maybe the snowboarding is just an excuse to play with the gopro.

Kling makes a great point there's too many dumbasses concerned with "GETTING THE SHOT" and not with their actual riding. It's like the douche bag that almost hit me twice in the park because he was trying to film himself, when I called him out about nearly hitting me and not knowing how to ride the park he got defensive and took a swing at me so I popped him in the face. From there he ran right to mountain safety to cry like the little bitch he is and say I have it on film but I don't exactly know how to show you. See what I'm getting at here.

On another note you people should see the level of crap people send me to post. Ugh so bad. Seriously so fucking bad.

That makes him a douche for (a) getting in peoples way (b) swinging at you and (c) crying like a bitch about it. But someone wanting to have fun with a camera while boarding is doing no harm. And having fun. I find it funny how many people's noses get out of joint about that...

I can imagine! Now that's another issue - the muppets who think what they're doing is somehow special. Probably because mommy tells them everything they do is special. "You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake"
