Wow... closed-minded because I think this sucks?

Haha, no judging at all there, eh?

I can only understand this mentality if you've exhausted the efforts to make something enjoyable. He said he flat out was not interested. I'm not going to make him a cup of tea and hold his hand for that. I can't relate.

no one asked you to hold his hand..or to relate. he posted the thread asking if anyone else ever felt that way..if you havent, then obviously this isnt the thread for you. damn dude.

and yes, if you dismiss something because you cant relate or dont get it, then you are closed minded.
im not judging..im calling it like i see it.

you think when a band is on tour, they get up every night for every show? i bet sometimes theyre tired and theyre just not into it, even if they love music with everything thay have in them.

And as I said Donutz, no offense intended. It's just the way I feel about your day.

But beyond that, I also have a stress fracture in my fibula that is keeping me from skating and a few other things. He didn't say, for instance, "no matter how many times I tried a back 180, I kept catching an edge" or "no matter what I did today, I could not stop being cut off by retards." Or...



He flat out said, "just couldn't get interested" and "for no reason that I can see, I just didn't feel like it." Yes, this sucks. And yes, I'm very happy I've never had one of THOSE days.

Also never said that he sucks... I said it makes me think you suck and backed it up with questions to determine whether he sucked or not.

Am I the referenced "one trick pony"?
you have a stress fracture in your fibular bone too? how did you get it? snowboarding?

I can understand having an 'off' day as in not being able to land anything... everyone has those. Its def easier to remain stoked when you ride with others rather than solo. It helps you see things and features you've been missing and pushes your boundaries (if they're more advanced of course).
I've had days where things have gone wrong, bringing the stoke level down but thats about it. Always happy to be on the hill.

Exactly... and Donutz didn't seem to be.

And yes, Taki, I think I did... it was the only activity I was engaged in at the time. I rode on it for a month and a half before it was diagnosed.

Yeah. For one day. For the first time in my life. It was kind of freaky.

And BTW, the reason you've been labelled "judgemental" is not so much because of your question, but because of your phrasing. "While he pines over having..." is judgemental, and prefacing your post with "no offence but..." doesn't get you a get-out-of-jail card.

That's just a bit of general advice. I'm not offended or butt-hurt by your posts. I've been attacked by BurtonAvenger -- you're going to have to rachet up your game WAY up to compete

This wasn't an attack at all. I left my response open-ended with legitimate questions. An attack would have done nothing of the sort.

The bold in your response is exactly why I responded with that. If I felt like this "for no apparent reason" I'd think I suck as well. I tell people I love that they suck when I think they suck, but I'm also someone who can continue the conversation afterward and offer a different perspective.

I hope that never happens to you again because that would suck.

When by myself jibbin this happens alot. Just wonder what the fucks the point. Sure it's still fun, but the stoke is just not there.

I've never had this feeling riding with people though cause you feed off each other.

Whats funny is when you get this feeling, dont go out for the rest of the season and the first nice day your out doing another sport(bmx for me.) You just cant wait to hop on the board again. It's bullshit.

Yeah, to be honest, part of my foul mood was discovering that Manning had closed the terrain park YET AGAIN! I think they have issues with their priorities

I love Manning Park when it's operating at full wattage. It's a nice resort and never crowded (30-second lift lines, maximum!), with runs like Gully which is basically a long half-pipe with trees. But they're unpredictable. They'll close shit down just because someone had indigestion.
