Yeah, those guys acted like complete douche bags - and then even started a threat and posted the video. Predictably -and appropriately- they got hammered for it...

My take, if your going to criticize someones video on this thread you ought to have a video to back your talk up. Otherwise your just a bunch of words with no substance...

Like this post? All you are doing is throwing up a semantical argument. I don't gopro. I'll ride with one and film my friends who actually are really good(if they ask, but we really don't bother), plus I actually have the skills to ride and hold a pole at the same time.

I've hammered on this thread too hard and tried to dial it back a bit, but I stand by what I've said already, I'm not gonna be a bigger dick just because you wanna argue.

This thread is for the very purpose to which I am destined to fight it seems, but I won't be baited by you sir

edit: wait is this me getting baited? godamnit!!! go watch something funny or crude...look here comes TT......

that video was a kid having an awesome time, why try to punch holes in that if all you got left to offer is videos of your friend and more talk of a pole?

Meh I'm not here to hurt feelings as suprising as that may seem. I've already made my point colorful enough, it was not made in a vacuum, I have reasons for my view, but I'm not gonna rehash it for you.

I'm gonna side with klinger on this one. I see a TON of kids that can barely ride, out there swinging their gopoles around, not paying attention to their surroundings or trying to improve their riding. Edits are cool when you're good. Otherwise just watch them at home... or better yet, have somebody film you so you can watch it and see what you need to improve on. Just my 2 cents.

Just think if anyone can avoid getting too upset and also decide to leave their gopros at home next time. The huge smile on their face from the progression of linking turns or hitting some good snow on a steeper face without the distraction and the epiphany thereof...I will help some poor soul! maybe just 1....and crush like 1000s others lol......

You've got a point about the swinging pole ('cos it's a problem when they're getting in peoples way or being a nuisance). But the whole "put the camera away and progress instead" doesn't wash with me. Snowboarding is about enjoying yourself, in whatever way makes you happy. If someone gets a kick from filming and watching themselves back then more power to them. Me, I want to strike a better balance between the two. Other's couldn't care less about any filming and are all about progression. To each their own (once they're not getting in the way or being a danger to anyone), no?

It must be a generational thing. I don't see what's "fun" about filming yourself falling every other turn. or, for that matter, putting one on your helmet and then firing down every run straight as an arrow, eventually eating shit and sliding on your face for 200 yards. I guess, as long as they are only endangering themselves, i'm not overly worried about it, i just don't understand it.
