Spare me... Let's see these fuckers get up at 4:30 every morning and slog to work and back like rest of us for a fraction of the cash.

I have no problem with recognizing talent and the dedication it takes to develop it. Just remember how fucking lucky you are to get paid to do something you love that is essentially a recreational activity. It's called humility.

Oh and I'm not repressed at all. I'm a full-on asshole. That said, you can go fuck yourself!

I dare you to go make a 20 second clip of riding with nothing but landed tricks, cliff drops, and pow slashes. 20 seconds that's it. Lets see how much time and effort it takes.

Ever seen the Whiskey movies?




Aren't you the guy who as of a month ago had never been snowboarding?

Have you been yet?

Watched the first 2 or 3 episodes tonight. Meh...

Is it just me or do pro snowboarders seem like a bunch of spoiled little douches?

Meh, I dunno...

I'm not pissed off, I just think it's funny that I mentioned something to the effect of I think the guys in this movie are a little on the douchey side.

Didn't say fuck-all about skills or fan-boys or anything really. I just noted while trying to watch that fucking series (and turning it of when I coudn't take it anymore) that I would in no way want to hang out with these guys.

Even if I was along for free getting free private lessons from top pros and staying in sick lodges with free heli trips, I would still rather be elsewhere. That's all... They just seemed more than a little "douchey".

Somehow that's now about who is a snowboarding god, who is klinger's butt-buddy, and how many times I've been snowboarding?...

Whatever...

I'll be 37 in January, could definitely be an age thing. If I was 20 I might think these particular douches weren't quite so douchey, but I doubt it...

Just to have an idea where you're coming from... And no I'm not reading the whole tread to see who's right...You really care?
Those guys put together a movie to make $...nt to demonstrate something I guess.. to show how they made AoF (Which is pretty badass..)

Have you seen Deeper / Further?
