Stereotypes have always plagued the snowboarding culture. For some reason it’s believed we were uneducated, slack jawed, thug, pot smoking, vagrants that are a blight to society. Now sure as our culture has grown and aged we’ve become more mature, but we still constantly have to deal with the throw backs. Even worse is that these people end up working in the snowboard industry and representing what snowboarding is about to the general masses. While a lot has changed some things never will.
Case in point is Dirty D from Tyrant Snowboards.
Seriously would you want this guy representing snowboarding let alone your company? Hey I have an idea lets do the whitest thing possible, lets go snowboarding. Oh wait snowboarding is so thug cause people from the suburbs that can pay 50 plus dollars a day to slide down hill on pieces of plastic that cost in excess of $300 dollars is thug life.
Why can’t more people put dumbasses like this in check? To quote a friend “I was really hoping for a 42nd trimester abortion when I saw this!” But were we lucky enough to have that happen? Fuck no, now we have to deal with this guy cupping the balls of a 6th tier snowboard brand. Yes that’s right this brand didn’t use due diligence when picking their spokesmen and now has been delegated to the likes of Bitch Boards, Manic Bindings, and whatever crappy product can crawl from the cess pool of snowboard shit.
