Unless you like 80's hair metal, play with the sound muted.

This. But some of that shiat was crazy, even by snowboarder standards

Oh yeah, some of the stuff was pretty neat to watch. I just have yet to figure out why people add music to every video.

been waiting for some quick release bindings to get developed so snowboarders can start working in kickflips and things into their routines.

recently tried snowboarding and after watching this video realized I was doing it all wrong. I missed the part where i yell "fark it!" and leap off a building or something.

also, Youth Gone Wild was the best of the 3 songs in that video lol

Show me any other sport/activity where you tie BOTH of your feet to ONE piece of wood,

That's all you need to know about how stupid snowboarding is.

I actually don't mind music added to videos, but sometimes the music seems really oppressive and takes away from the video, rather than enhancing it. I actually like Youth Gone Wild but can think of several other songs I'd have used if I had made it. Of course when I was 18 years old, subtlety wasn't my thing. I'd have probably used Black Flag or the Ramones or the Vandals.

Show me any other sport/activity where you throw an oblate spheroid forward to another teammate. That's all you need to know about how stupid American football is.

/also, there are other sports as shown above.

it's not wood and your feet are not tied.

at least it wasn't dubstep

But you can turn it on again for Focus. Those crazy Dutchmen still sound good, and the clips kinda fit the music, some nice editing there.

And, by golly, that was a great film. Had to wind several tricks back to watch again.
Screw you, haters, that was awesome.

wow, the sport has come quite a ways even since i was riding for companies.  some of that was just incomprehensible, especially all the curved rail/kinked handrail stuff.  oh, and going upside down 3 times off a 90 foot jump is pretty impressive.
 
2014-01-21 02:24:50 PM  
Some really amazing stuff in there.

Being older, somewhat crippled and a very crazy I especially got a kick out of the guy snowboarding with a cane at 6:52.

And as for the music it's not really what I'm in to but whoever made this took the time to sync the shots in the video to it, so hat's off to them.

Whatever keeps them off the mogul runs.

Back to the half pipe, bra.

Wrong, in all those cases you can easily move and remove one or both of your feet. Goes to show that not only is snowboarding is stupid but snowboarders follow this trend.

Move the goal posts much?  Did you also not see that in a good portion of the tricks in the vid that they also didn't even have their feet in the bindings?  Clearly you have no idea what you are talking about.

What makes those tricks cool on a skateboard is the fact that the board is NOT ATTACHED TO THEIR FEET.

THIS.

However, I'm not going to diminish the props deserved by those guys going mach 5 down 70ft long handrails. That shiat is insane.

And when those guys fall, they get severely punished. Check out "The Crash Reel" about Kevin Pearce and the brain injury that nearly killed him despite wearing a helmet.

Great film with stunning eye-candy skills. My jaw dropped open with the jump over and across the buildings.
 
2014-01-21 10:42:58 PM  
They're still skateboarders, they're just adapting to the weather.

i have a weird desire to play SSX Tricky right now.

I can't hear Youth Gone Wild without picturing Bach showing up to one of his many court appearances in a 3 piece suit. Seeing that on MTV as a kid was a real wake up call.
 
2014-01-22 03:19:47 PM  
Yeah, that stuff "looks" cool. But a large percentage of kids still in the learning stage are actually hazards on the hill.
