I find it ironic that a man wearing bling around his neck is calling others "wiggers"!

If I wanted to ride hand rails,. Id skateboard. Cheaper then spending $500 for a set up and you can do it 300 + days a year.

Being from Ontario and coming from a bmx background I could only relate to the trick side of snowboarding when I first started. There was alot of J.P walker parts that really stood out to me as being the shit. Especially the picnic bench setup's they made and killed.

Only in the past 4 years when I went to Banff is when I realized what actual boarding in the mountains was about. If I lived where actual mountains are I probably wouldn't step foot in a park again.

And just like mpd, it's all about the trees for me.

They must have some premium health insurance for the kids doing it, they're doing some dangerous ass stuff. While I think part of it is progression, I also believe that half of it is just, "Hey dude, let's go jump off that 50 foot building".

Pretty anti-self preservation lol.

I've heard it a bunch in the Midwest.
And considering we're usually the last ones to hear (or see) any cultural change...


I think it can be fun to watch videos where it's just take after take of riding rails or jibbing and it feels like one continuous motion, but I feel that I wouldn't want to do it myself since it'd be a pain to do a rail, get to the bottom, and then walk all the way back up...

Plus, I suck at rails.

Watched 3 new movies last night all Urban. So many kids are the product of their environment.

Well I'll agree with the bold part of that. If it is progression, it's just the "see who can drop from the highest building" progression. Half the shit they land flat, not for my knees that's for sure.

Although i'm a teen and am constantly in the park, if i had the chance to ride some real powder i would take that any day over the 60 foot kickers or walls and jibs that we have at the currently icy hell hole called Granite Peak
