Gaper hunt

In this thread feel free to share humorous gaper pictures, stories and descriptions. we can hold a poll and vote on who has posted the funniest Gaper picture/or gaper related story so be sure to give the story or picture a name (to make voting easier). I will start us out with the official definition.



Gaper: adJ
A gaper is a skiier or snowboarder who is completely clueless. Usually distiungished by their bright colored clothes and a gaper gap, the gap between goggles and a helment/hat. Gapers also do the "Gaper Tuck" which is an attempt at being a ski racer by tucking, however, it is done incorrectly with the poles sticking straight up like thunderbolts and lighting, very very frightning! Gapers also sit at the bottom of jumps and try and go big off table tops in the park.
1. My eyes are burning from that gapers bright colored clothes.
2. I fell off the chair laughing at that gaper tuck.
3. Did you just see that gaper getting landed on because he was sitting like a dumbass at the landing of a jump.

e.x.





Let the Hunt Begin!!!

I'm affraid you cannot not use comment #1 anymore as neon colors seem to be cool again.

My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite
independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

So all you cool snowboarders out there busy bouncing off trees with your little switch moves looking like rappers at a basketball game with your cool names for all your moves, prolly never been on a skateboard and don't know what pavement to your face feels like, thinkin' that lefotver crack is punk rock and are too cool to talk to anyone that's not in your little click, whaddya call that?

Clueless or not these people are out to have a good time like the rest of us, and quite frankly I respect them more than some punk looking like a Christmas tree on a board who's too cool to talk to me on the lift...

HAHAHAAAAA..listen to yourself. Rappers at a basketball game..that doesn't even make sense. Left over crack = punk rock? what!?? Cool names for our tricks? Our names for tricks have regular names.Where are you getting this from..haha wow..you make yourself look more like a fool than anything coming onto a snowboard forum and playing devil's advocate. And just so you know, personally, I've skateboarded since I was little, so don't go ahead making rash statements when you don't even know what the fuck you're talking about. Go tuck your ski poles to the sky and pretend your racing, fuckin two plankin gaper.

Hahaha... why don't u post a pic of yourself if ur gonna throw down the web courage? Can't afford a camera? Better yet i'm not hard to find at Lake Louise... I got a stomp pad made out of griptape with "H8ER" carved into it.
I'm not even gonna bother posting what I want to say, because if I can't say it to your face, i'll just keep it to myself.

But I will say, walk the walk, dude. You are clearly one of those coolios I was talking about.

hah..oh my lord..look at you getting worked up, quite funny to be honest. And no I'm not "one of those coolios" but thanks for judging. and I don't have a pic up cus I don't care enough about having a radical avatar! for everyone to look at. oh and uhh..cool stomp pad dude! where can I get one like it, it'd really fit my coolio persona. haha good idea on keeping what you wanted to say to yourself so you don't make a fool of yourself and look like an e-thug. it probably would've sounded like "hey you wanna fight? come see me at lake louise!" get a grip tough guy. ha "why so serious?"

Look, you can knock skiing all you want, skiers pay the rent at resorts. There's more of them, and skiers tend to be more affluent than snowboarders generally speaking. I was just saying that it's not nice to belittle people because they're not as savvy and aggressive as us on the mountain. I was at Sunshine last year, and some dudes totally mocked a guy that fell off the chair trying to get on it, in front of a huge lineup, and come on? Is that the rep we want? Sure i'm no ray of sunshine either, but seriously, we were all beginners once. Guys like you claim it's all about fun, and I made that stomp pad because i'm pretty much labelled a hater. What I hate, is double standards. That's all. You know exactly what i'm talking about. Sorry if you took offense to my generalization, but if it didn't apply to you, why d'ya have to come back at me like that?

Wow... when the snowboard world is dominated by people that share your outlook, it makes me proud to be a hater. What if I laughed at you if you fell backwards off a rail? I mean really laugh AT you, not with you, mock you, ridicule you... but I won't. Look, I try to be nice, I get attitude. I give the attitude back, i'm a hater... what the fuck is it with this? It's not even about the snowboarding anymore with this clicky bullshit. Respect everyone, regardless of ability.
