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.

you keep making this about ability, does it really bother you that he's not as good as you on a board?

I have both a helmet mount and a pole mount, and have used both at different times. For me it's a training thing. I don't do "edits", I just watch the original uncut vid. It was through watching my first pole-mount video that I realized how little edge i was using, for instance. Since then, been working on getting the angles up on my board.

And the videos help a little in the off-season with withdrawal.

As for the point about people who are waving their poles around obliviously, I'd bet they're pretty oblivious even when they aren't carrying hardware.

There is very, VERY few people that are not BETTER than me. That is certainly not the issue. I ride to get better, and I don't understand what a person is doing if that NOT their goal. Like I said, I think it's a generational thing. I also don't get Lil Wayne, reaility tv, and sharking. I guess I'm getting old.

I'm actually making my first edit, Instead of watching TV I bought some editing software and have been playing with it at night. It's kinda fun.

It's getting old going through all my footage though. I really need to remember to shut off the camera during our safety meetings and chairlift rides.
Mine is all POV footage though.. Sometimes a friend followed me so I got some decent park and tree runs. Not to interested in getting a pole though.
