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.

Me and my friends try to run into each other and push each other down in the lift line and strapping in or whatever. I give my best bud a constant stream of shit whenever he battles his gear, man imagine if he was fucking with a gopro! muwhaahaha come to CO Chomps....We'll tear it up....

Eh, having fun?

And it's no generational thing - as much as I keep denying it I'm not getting any younger myself! The need to try get famous off it I don't get, but the filming/editing/having fun with I do.

Exactly - it's fun, a hobby, and a better waste of your time than many other things. No harm no foul!

Don't bother, I don't think they realize this is snowboarding there are no rules, no one to impress, no one to compete with. It ain't about showing another how good you ride, or telling another they suck, they can't do this, they can't do that, their gear is shit, outdated, mainstream, whatever other crap that has little to do with snowboarding and more to do with ego stroking, it's about saying hey I love this thing we do, take a look at the awesome time I had last week. Check out the place I hit yesterday the pow was deep untracked and the sun was blazing. Any ability you can show is just eye candy for the rest of us to feast our eyes on. Negative vibes suck! Suck for this forum, sucks for snowboarding.

I don't care how good someone is compared to other people, but if they aren't riding to better THEMSELVES, then really what is the point? Is it really that fun to fall every 20 feet? Wouldn't it be MORE fun to be able to ride down the slope with out eating shit? I think that's all anyone is saying here.
