His bad-ass 80's stache says it all!

Awesome! How things have progressed! One of my friends that tried snowboarding and retreated back to skies had this discussion last night about Snowboarders vs skiers

He gave me the same argument about how snowboarders mess the runs up and ruin the moguls...

Some of us remember those days. First board I rode on did not have edges had three fins bolted on like a surfboard. That was the cutting edge tech at that point. First one I bought did have full metal edges though. Was a time before internet sales and no local shops so had to drive to the Burton Factory to buy my first board.

And yes that was how people felt about snowboarding at that time. Getting yelled at for going off a jump because a snowboard ruined them.

Hahahaha oh man those seem like some crazy times. I bet that guy is having a shitfit these days. I hate people like that who are resistant to change. I try everything, there is no reason to be so close minded. Although those old boards did look like suicide. I don't know if I would want to strap on one of those.

Just comes to show you how fast the tech has progressed and how fast it is still progressing. Just 25 years later and snowboarding is HUGE.

Dude, thats just awesome. Drive to the burton factory. Its as good as the story in the new Westbeach book about calling Sims and ordering a board directly from Tom Sims on the phone.

My mom still remember the trip. She still thinks I am nuts for snowboarding and recalls me talking her into driving me up there cause I was like 15 at the time.
