Snowboarding is and should always be about one thing, having fun. If its not fun to do then there isn’t any reason to do it. The other day I got to witness the one thing that is killing the fun and free spiritedness of snowboarding first hand. But what could possibly be hurting snowboarding?
The answer to that question is soccer parents. The are the soul sucking leeches that traumatize once normal children into hucking and competing machines. These are the parents that have to live vicariously through their child to make up for the inadequacies they suffer from. So there they stand on the sidelines screaming at little Johnny. Saying things like, “Land that 540 clean or else!”
