Why do snowboarders think they're so fuckin' cool?

Seriously, boards named after machine guns, and skunk apes, like wtf is that? the whole "gangsta" attitude, like seriously that shit doesn't belong on the hill... paying more attention to graphics than specs when buying a board, bouncing off trees and faggoty little nose spin thingies... whatever happened to function over fashion and what's "cool"? Whatever happened to charging big lines without stopping 'till your at the bottom? Seriously, for the most part, I think 90% of snowboarders out there are fuckin' retards. And be creative when you lash back at me, i've heard it all.

Sounds like you had a bad experience.

I'm not one of the "cool" snowboarders, though, so I can't really argue with you.

Nice to see...I figured as much from your posts... not really bad experience, per se, just what it's all become as a whole... borderline depressing to see some of these attitudes out there...

I don't know. I get a lot of flak from people because I get preachy about not smoking pot and driving or because I don't drink, etc etc. It's the same crap from high school that meant I couldn't hang out with my "friends" on the football team. No thanks, guys. I'd rather not chug a beer and nail the easy girls under the bleachers at half time...

I don't really know a lot of snowboarders personally, but I tend to get along with most people on the hill. I've seen a lot of kids who think they're the hottest thing on a board. They act like jerks, but it's usually a personality flaw not related to snowboarding. I know plenty of people in the auto racing sport who act the same way about their cars. There are jagoffs everywhere, snowboarding, too.

Still, there are lots of good people out there. Look around on the board and you'll find some great people, even if they do have different opinions. I think it's just best to ignore the people who bug you so you don't let them ruin your snowboarding day.

Your problem is you care too much what other people are doing. I felt the same way back when I was into rock climbing and so many people wanted to be gym rats and only climb indoors. I was always in a constant state of 'wtf?' because to me the best experiences I had were outdoors. But then I realised that there will always be people that enjoy something by doing it completely different from what I think, might as well just concentrate on my own enjoyment. I agree with the whole gangsta scene, but most of them fall into the category of teenage boys trying to be cool and fit in, just like teenage boys have done forever.

Fawk it, Ride, Rinse, Repeat!

Fair enough... you're probably right... i'm generally insecure and frustrated that I ride alone because my riding style is not common at all... nice to see the other 10% representing more and more decent people!

Haha ya, Nice work! i've knocked people out while I was still strapped in...Had to dive over a flosser once I was going 70 he was sitting in a blind spot... called on his whole crew and they took off like bitches... I'm just sick of nobody wanting to ride with me because I don't fit the "i'm so fuckin' cool" attitude...
