fuck i hate this sites basic setup... deleted another post of mine.
so yeah. i can't even bother to type it again. the synopsis is that by spraying, the positives are that you have fun.
the negatives are that you could injure someone (as i was... my bloody back didn't appreciate the "fun"), it perpetuates the douchbag stereotype we are trying to remove from the sport, you could piss off the wrong people (who may kick your ass, clip your pass, or just be cool people who would have bought you a beer otherwise), and for me, most importantly, you aren't actually enjoying "snowboarding", you are enjoying instigating conflict.
if thats all you want to do, go drinking and call the bouncers a bunch of pussies. after all, its just words. they wouldn't take it seriously would they?
as a couple side notes, i live in ontario.. riding here is different than out west. we don't have much snow, and what we have is thinly covering ice. i have seen level four instuctors bail on the crazy conditions here. take a weekend warrior and make him attempt to do a "super cool spray" and he could very likely go ass over teakettle and severly injure themsleves and the sprayee.
also, last time i was sprayed, i was patrolling, blocking off a portion of a run that we were transporting an injured rider on a snowmobile... i mean seriously.. what the fuck? how is that cool?
sarcasm... yeah... like THAT will ever catch on...
