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

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?
