Lift line problems, with ignorant people

So im sure everyone goes through this. But when you first get a new board, and doesn't even have to be a new board, but when skiers with their poles dont look out for our boards. And it's annoying to keep telling them to back off every single minute. I mean... you're not going to lose your spots you know? But the point is, people need to start respecting others equipment and such. My first board I ever got, I didnt mind, since i didn't know much about them scratching my board. But now getting more into the sport and getting more expensive equipments, it's a hassle to have them not watch out for your stuff. Just wish they could give space. Btw, this isnt just skiers either. But the snowboarders that slide into your tail base and such. I have nothing against anyone, but like I said... Give space.

Yea, I totally agree with you. I used to get mad when people would bang into my board, but now that I constantly ride park, I realized that a little tap in the lift line is not going to be anything as bad as what I'm putting my board through

lift and stomp board as if to get snow off, this keeps some people back.

Tell them straight up that they are not going to get up the hill any faster so just chill.

my gf's fav is to say 'sorry, but her board was only designed for ONE person to ride.

I had a bad one the other day. The guy kept inching forward and we were not going anywhere. After the fifth time of bumping into my board I turned around and said. Yes I know you are behind me and its fing annoying and he backed off. Its not even that I care about my rock board its just plain annoying..

I have this friend who gets all pissy when you bump your board into his... Gives everyone glaring looks... lol! What a queer.

I used to care, now I think of the scratches as battle wounds. And once the tip or tail gets messed up beyond repair, I get some new technology.

Whenever skiers run over my boards tips in the line. I casually let them get ahead of/ next to me in the line. I then "stumble" and hit the binding release so they fall out of there skis and look like an idiot. I did it to one guy twice in the same night last week and he got pretty pissy, but hey he shouldnt run over my board....
