Taking after pro's?
 
Does anyone else here find themselves getting sucked in to taking after pros?
Like, buying their brands/recommending their sponsors more because that's their sponsor than for liking the brand itself beforehand?

I find myself now doing this with Halldor Helgason (just like when I was really into Torstien last winter)
I find myself buying exclusively his sponsors for this year. (Actually all of my stuff is his sponsors except for my gloves[which my new ones are his sponsor neff and are on the way...] and switchback bindings)

Do any of you find yourself doing this? I know it's bad reasons to buy equipment for a sport where the last thing that should matter is who is on their team, but at least thus far none of these choices have let me down.

How old are you? If you're under 21 it's normal. Did it with Kevin Jones back in the day and seriously think his boots are the reason my feet are so fucked up.

16 so I guess I'm still dealing with being impressionable.

No. :huh: I'm more concerned about getting quality gear that fits my needs and riding style

Pet peeve: Plural of a noun is generally formed by adding a simple "s" at the end of the word, not an "'s".
So it should be "pros", not "pro's" in the title and the first post - or are you wearing shoe's!?

Nope. You could put a good pro on a crudely shaped piece of plywood with flip flops nailed to it for bindings and he'd still make me look like dogshit for as long as it held together.
