here are some great ones that have come across my desk, kinda make you go :scratch:

The distinctive shush of the splitboard cuts through the cold mountain
air. All alone on the steep slope, a single rider glides through the
powdery snow carving graceful, intricate arcs as he effortlessly
descends. With traditional snowboard gear, he would not have been able
to trace those intricate figures in the powder so easily and his descent
would not have been so effortless. But with the new gear he runs smoother and
faster than ever before.

Snowboarders crave excitement. You can tell by the acrobatic jumps they
make and the perilously steep runs they tear down, all while their feet
are attached to one piece of plastic measuring, on average, a mere 37
inches long by 9 inches wide. Considering snowboarders’ thrill-seeking
nature, it’s not surprising that the design on a snowboard—specifically,
the theme, layout, and color—is a major selling point for many riders.
In this sport, dull won’t do.

:scratch:

I remember the last time I shredded down a hill on a 37 inch by 9 inch piece of plastic :doobie: It would probably be even easier to glide effortlessly with two pieces of plastic, both 4.5 inches by 37 inches :scratch:

Hmm, interesting bit of revision to the vernacular on the part of Snowboarder.

Hippies=Anyone who doesn't want to cough up $60+ to ride a chair(not to say there is no granola munching going on, self included)
Banana style=Kook. I imagine this is different from BTX style. Must remember to send Mr. Olsen an email regarding this.
Hesher=One who is hardcore. While there are certainly hardcore among the ranks of Hessian Nation, I don't know if you can call all heshers hardcore. Is this trucker hat-wearin', flannel wearin', beard growin' nostalgia/irony?

Urrrggg.

For some reason I thought this came from a mag.
The interweb is a whole 'nother matter.
Carry on.

A quote form a skier friend of mine that we hike together "splitboarders are skier wannabes".

Not even close! :mrgreen:

Downhill skiing is disco. We only like to "uphill" ski. ;)
