I think you are overlooking a key point that you yourself made...
When we post these kinds of Vids here, a lot of us feel as though we ARE sharing them with Friends!!!!

(...of course some of the people I've called friends over the years wouldn't have been any kinder or gentler with their criticism either!)

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another how good you ride, or telling another they suck, they can't do this, they can't do that, their gear is shit, outdated, mainstream, whatever other crap that has little to do with snowboarding and more to do with ego stroking, it's about saying hey I love this thing we do, take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.

Nailed it. Don't know about you guys but when I'm riding more difficult terrain I get fucking pissed at dipshits that can't ride it because all they care about is getting their NoPro shot. Saw it again today guy was too busy caring about his monopole and not the traverse and was causing people to back up. Gotta get that epic fucking traverse shot bro gotta get it!

This is true, but I'm sure those guys are all your typical 5 day a year riders. I'm sure they carry all the same traits as other annoying tourists. Trying to get some sweet shots to their frat brothers in Georgia. I'd think riding around with a pole would limit you anyway. I just trade helmets with my buddies.

Watching videos of groomer runs with [usually terrible] music laced in should be kept in the family, I can agree with that. Should only be used if you're looking for advice. A co worker of mine started snowboarding, he's terrible but his Facebook page was flooded with videos of him plowing snow and falling. I would ashamed to show people. He's a good dude but is quite the asshat on the hill.

This right here, it's about bragging rights & rubbing it in your friends faces

Not about how great you are, but how great it was

I don't care who you are, if someone shows you a vid of the perfect day.
You/I/they are super jealous, cause I know, how fucking amazing those days are. That's just how it works.

Cause that's what friends are for.
