maybe they thought you were ready to move on? xD

I'm mostly happy around mountains and snow however a few things I could live without include:

1- someone smoking on the chair in front of me...I get to breath the second hand smoke all the way up
2- people following a line and then all of a sudden when you're about the pass they add a big C turn right where you're going without looking over they're shoulder first. You end up in the bush or on your ass to avoid them.
3- people who sit down right in front of me to strap in when I'm just about to get up and go.

lines of 5 or so 14 year old girls side-slipping the steeps turning it into an ice rink an olympic hockey team would be proud to play on.

Hell yeah. Seymour's really bad for this. I guess they think they have to go big to attract the riders and keep their rep. They had a really nice small ramp & knuckle off the beginner park a couple of weeks ago, then they replaced it with a couple of thoroughly useless rollers.


Error 404. Coffee not found.

I don't get angered often, Especially when boarding. That being said I hate getting cut off, bad flats, or waiting for other people.

Sorry, i'd just rather board by myself.
