just because skiers have 2 edges means nothing, on skis you could do a skidded turn same on a snowboard, on skis you could lay down a pencil line carve, again same as a board, because we have both feet attached to the same "board" we can actually manipulate our edge more than a skier could theirs. the nuances of snowboarding groomed runs are not any less than that of skiing

Now this is wrong without a doubt. Skiers have far more edge control than snowboarders. The only way for a snowboarder to come close is to rock an alpine stance like Terje. Skiers having more edges makes a world of difference. It is one of the reasons why skiers are faster than snowboarders.

Both skiing and snowboarding have what we call "noobs". Ski noobs make wide ass turns and snowboard noobs plow all the good snow down the mountain.

If you want to see a fast skier, go race some NASTAR racers. Make sure you wear those tight onesies too

Same goes for exiting the vehicle. If they ask you to exit, first of all, that never ends well, and second, they need probable cause. Don't just hop your ass out without asking why. So I've heard....

How to Flex Your Rights During Police Encounters
Know Your Rights: Dealing with Cops Reflexivity

I skimmed through some of the above stuff and it's all true.

I grew up in Vegas and wasn't your ideal citizen during my younger years. I quickly got accustomed to Vegas' police less-than-ideal tactics.

I've stretched my rights pretty far with my share of cops. Once, my friend and I were being "detained" for a reason that is too long to explain. Fast forward to the point, the cop didn't believe what I was saying (we were innocent). I told him that I am leaving whether or not he believes me. He got mad and told me to sit in the cop car or else he would arrest me. I said "if you had any type of evidence or reasonable doubt, you would already have cuffed me. Seeing as how I'm not cuffed and you don't have any evidence, I am leaving now." I walked away. All the cop could do was look mad.

Really, being scared in front of cops will get you in trouble. Know your rights. A cop searching you or your car for a traffic stop is bullshit. Call them out on it. Trust me, they'll write you a ticket and let you go. Unless of course they really did see that joint in your center console

The one down side to being a stoner. Cops find out that you blaze, and they use that as probable cause too search.

As for a stereotype, so many people say that all boarders do drugs n shit like that.

you are really trying to compare apples and oranges. the fact is that skiing is easier to get started. thats it!

everything else you mention about mastering more variation of techniques are all relative to the individuals. you can choose when to stop learning. you say that skiing has more technique to master. but that only limits to what you know about. there are no limit to techniques in any sports!!!

your idea is like saying (infinity + 1) > (infinity)

actually your wrong. i never said anything about "edge control" i said there are just as many different techniques for snowboarding as there are for skiing and just because there is only one edge to deal with does not make it "easier to get good at".
