Default The one thing that pisses me off the most.

The thing that pisses me off the most and I always see when I go riding is other snowboarders slamming their boards on the ground before getting on the lift. Not only does this get almost none of the snow off their boards but its the most annoying sound ever. Does anyone agree with me? What else pisses you off?

So, have you ever tired it? I do it all the time when snow clumps up on my board. Who wants all that weight hanging off one foot? Stop your bitching and enjoy your day on the hill.

What pisses me off is waiting in line for a jump or rail when everybody takes their sweet ass time and wait for the other person to clear the landing before they start their descent.
I start going down to the feature before they even hit the jump, if the person bails on the landing I will just skip the feature and move on to the next one. Who wants to wait 5 minutes in line before each jump?

I usually wait until I'm on the lift to clean my board off. I'll do a jump and stomp while I'm on the hill if I just picked up a few pounds worth of snow. I don't do it in line because I don't want to step on anyone's boards.

Good thread, should be interesting.

Stomp-cleaning doesn't really annoy me. If they've got a lacquered topsheet they'll eventually crack the shit out of it in cold weather... rest safe in that knowledge.

This list is long:
-Folks who obviously aren't ready for the trail difficulty they're on. Nothing pisses me off more than trying to get around that one douchebag-on-skis who should be on the bunny hill but is using half the width of the trail... I go left, they go left to block me, I sigh and go right, they go right and block me. Half the time I end up looking like the dick because I have to squeak by them so close I might as well be cutting them off.
-Long lift lines and snowpunks who cut in said lines.
-Lifts that stop every 5 feet to let yet another douche-nozzle who should be on the bunny lift pick themselves up off the ground.
-People who flail their board, poles, or skis around on the lift and end up banging the shit out of my decent board with their Lamar turd-stick.
-People who stand right in the way of high traffic areas while they fiddle with their gear (like the entrance to the lift line area)... you may not be the only asshole on the mountain buddy, but you're certainly the biggest.
-People who unload from the lift and then stand there strapping in, having a conversation, or putting their thumb up their ass. Like nobody else could possibly be trying to get off the lift behind you, Jackass.
-Stoned liftees. Put down the joint and throw some snow on that loading/unloadng area. Or don't put down the joint.. I don't care, just throw some snow on that sheet of ice.

I'm not bitching. I'm sorry if it sounded like that but thats not what I meant. Yes, I have tried it and think that wiping it off when you strap in works just as well. I really don't mind it when people do it, but it just pisse me off when they do it like ten times right next to me and end up slamming down on my board.

The stomp method works for getting snow off your board; combine it with a little back-and-forth and the snow just slides off.

However, this is mostly useless if there is any ice buildup on your topsheet. Snow sticks to this ice and must be removed manually. The remaining ice must also be scrubbed off manually.

I went to Wal-Mart and got a $5 little tub of green Turtle Wax (super hard shell). I applied it to the topsheet as I would a car.

What I found was that snow would still pile up, but the aforementioned shake+stomp method would shake off surface snow. Any remaining snow was easily wiped off, leaving no ice buildup.
