Yesterday was my season opener, since the northern part of the ice coast isn't doing so well snow wise. On my run before lunch, I was racing a buddy. As I was ripping, some teens thought it'd be funny to whip a half ice have snow, mountain dew saturated ball. This ruined my new $50 dollar goggles (not too good, not too bad, gave me two nasty black eyes, and a swollen nose.

DISCLAIMER- this was not a bad slam. I am just expressing my hatred for snotty teens (only the little brats, I like and sometimes board with some chill teenagers). If you guys have any stories of littler kids being b*tches please post, i'd love to read:)

Beleive me, if I wouldn't of gotten thrown in jail I would have punched them in the face. But to the highlighted term; It was my way of saying they whipped a snowball at me, that was pretty much half hard ice. They had also poured mountain dew on it, to my luck. (the snow was green so I did the old smell/taste test). It still pisses me off, but I spotted the kid on the mountain later. i'll just say revenge wasn't necessary hahahaha. He was riding a burton custom too, such a shame...


EDIT: to what you highlighted, I didn't make it clear AND typo'd, my bad

Holy shit I'd be so f'ing pissed! wow those fukrs. You should have just been an ass and reported them to the ski patrol and they would have dealt with them. probably they would just warn them though. For sure next time you see them you have to cover them in snow.

Whatever goggles don't protect your eyes from a snowball with mountain dew on it must be total garbage.

And you tasted it after you got hit? What do you have downs? Oh and you mad.

Thugit, no need to be a dick. This is my story, not yours, if it doesn't satisfy you then don't comment.

mishahtaki- I'm trying to be a lot less violent in my life seeing as how my years leading up to this (31 young) have been filled with me getting violent and messing up with a lot of stuff. So I let it slide, this time atleast hahaha

Bostonboarder- I'm sure jesus will make it disappear if he see's the kid "ripping" haha. To sum up his riding level I'd say hes as good as a Shaun white. With no legs, no steeze, and stoned out of his mind... quite possibly a lot worse & uglier too.. But I must have some sympathy for the kids parents. $521 dollar board, I beleive he has Burton cartel's for his bindings ($259), couldn't tell the boots but they looked like thirtytwo's. He had the local stores bandanna, ($15), expensive looking goggles (couldn't tell the brand, but they looked high quality). Some Burton pants and a burton jacket.

so his setup is probably, what? Over $1,000 (considering the outerwear is $100+)

Oh I got stories. Your talking to our resident high schooler, haha.
That sucks man. I hate those little douchebags that give the sport a bad name. Did you have an idea what goggles you were going to get to replace them? If your on a budget I bought some Spy Targa IIs for this season, and the optics are worlds better than my $70 Smith's.

If your goggles are smiths, they've got a recycling program where you can send them in and get 50% off a new pair.

I used 30 year old goggles and got brand new I/O's for this season. :D

His Mom should pay for your goggles...
Fixed it for you :)

Around here there's a zero tolerance policy towards people throwing shit off lifts now, get caught doing it and say goodbye to your season pass. You should've reported them for sure, it was a total dick move on that kids part, but karma will bite him in the ass eventually.

Guys, calm down. No need to be dicks here. If you're not satisfied with my story then do me a favor and click the little back button on the top left of your screen, or press backspace, your go. Also, I looked at this kid for about 2 minutes, to get a good look at him in case he did something again. Then I could report him with ease. Again, if you see a kid with a custom who is that bad, i'm sure you would see the other gear too. Burton boards= Burton bindings. Chances are with teenagers too they buy whatever is expensive and therefore "good". I am not knocking the custom, great board, but I believe younger adults tend to choose Burton over other brands better for their riding style. That being said, most teenagers who don't know anything go with the most expensive Burton's. Once again, no offense to you Burton riders. I just personally prefer lib tech over all.

I am also not too sure about the goggles- my girlfriend picked them up at random so I don't loose anymore contacts. I know they were nothing good, just average clear lens's with a black frame. I'll do some research to find out if you guys would like.

I would have stalked that fuktard until I found a place of my choosing for him to take his ass whipping. (I'm 35 btw)

Regardless of anything else in this story, throwing an ice ball is a dick move. It is one thing to throw a snowball at a friend and play around; it is quite another to do what the kid did. Having said that, two wrongs certainly don`t make a right and as an adult, you would have gotten charged with assault of a minor had you physically attacked the kid. Now if a kid attacks you and you defend yourself; totally different story in the eyes of a judge and jury...;)

You did the right thing by keeping your cool, but I am with deviant; I would have turned his ass in to patrol in a heart beat. We don`t shitheads like this on the hill.
Agreed. :thumbsup:

Also, I ride burton, but most people with burton gear piss me off. I worked all summer to pay for my gear and got it really steeply discounted ($200 for 2010 custom/cartels on craigslist), but I'm seriously considering trading it in just because I don't want to be associated with all those douches.

Yeah telosion i didn't mean to bad mouth Burton. But your one of the few that buys it for the gear, NOT the name. You're right, most kids ruin the name by buying it. But it still is a nice brand besides that.

To Snowwolf and jpg3- I went back for a few short hours this morning. Saw the kid again, he was knocking snow off of his board purposely over peoples heads then laughing. Soon as I got down the hill I found a ski patrol, reported him. As I was coming down again, I passed him handing over his season pass to the ski patrol. Better satisfaction then punching him would have brought haha.. karma prevails!
