    What really doesn’t match up for me is this: His apparently overwhelming hatred of splitboarders, and his apparently overwhelming concern for our safety. I just don’t get it.

    Whatever… David, if you don’t like us, or at least respect our mode of snow travel, DON’T FUCKING TOUR WITH US.
    AND, STFU.

    Kharma will bite this guy in the ass. He obviously feels strong enough about his point to make this page, although it seems like a silly outlet of hatred. A facebook page that hates on splitboarding? What a waste of time. Does he still work at the college? I wouldn’t be suprised if this kind of behavior has gotten him in trouble already. If he does, I think this needs to be brought to their attention. A person with this type of instability is the last person that should be teaching any type of outdoor safety/survival class. Ignorance is the crux of this country, it sucks, way to represent douche.

    maybe he’s one of the people who goes to a cabin b/c he dislikes people, as opposed to loving the outdoors.. or some mixture therein.

    This guy just hates snowboarders. If he was going off on splitboarders only I could almost understand his argument. There are some deficient sides to splitting, but most of them are addressed with proper protocols in avalanche terrain. The only scenario I can see is you just rode a line and are in a safe zone at the bottom when your buddy kicks off a slide and gets buried. Say it’s 50 yards to the debris field and the snow is not supportable getting over there. A skier can at least side step back up on skis. Once you hit the debris field skis are probably coming off.

    The bottom line though is he also supports the snowboading ban at the last three ski areas. Where there is no issues with companion rescue. Which just says to me he is a hater. I also wouldn’t be surprised if his credentials are blown up a bit. I just don’t know any avalanche pro in this state that remotely has an attitude like that about snowboarders. They will openly discuss weakness and strengths of boards and talk about how to deal with it.

    Basically this guy is a total douche.

    (4) everyone watching sees him refusing to take down pictures of someone’s child.

    I just gotta say I’d punch the fucking guy in the nose if it was my kid.

    someone kicked him in the balls – and it was a splitboarder.

    someone fucked his wife – and it was a splitboarder.

    someone shit in his wheaties – and it was a splitboarder.

    someone slashed ‘his’ freshies – and it was a splitboarder.

    …. and that splitboarder was I

    I love many skiers, but these guys are just a$$ holes :banghead: …. But really does it matter? They look like jerks to everyone else respectable, and kind, and the only people who think they are right are stupid. So, let them hate us, let them think we suck. We will still break trail, take “thier” freshies, and be overall better than them. Shred harder, and think of them as an excuse to climb higher, go further and be more steezy. They are what keeps me snowboarding.

    Children are non-combatants in E-battles. Everyone knows this. Or should. Is this for real?

    we need pukes like this guy to unite splitboarders and snowboarders. we now have a visible target to direct our pent up hostility.

    we are all skater punks at heart, against the grain monkey wrench gang types. he’s gonna be so sorry he make that fb page. :bananas:

    the guy is a huge troll, but it will backfire on him big time.

    and it livens up the forum a bit :headbang:

    I wonder how much it would cost to put up a billboard in Durango (I think that is his last known location). Or make a few dozen cases of t shirts and donate them to every thrift store, halfway house and homeless shelter in southern CO.
    I had some text in there but then I thought it might be more fun to leave it to the wit of the community…

    Maybe even put a small icon on some of the splitboard.com shirts…… $25 well spent in my opinion

    You guys are giving this guy way, way too much attention. If he checked into his FB page one day and had no new comments, he’d be pizzeezeed. Every response gives him a boner. I give him an A+ in trolling.

    haha, he restricted it at a minimum. Possibly closed completely.

    Splitboard.com = 1
    Ted Kahzynski look alike = 0
