  • If I had a hairstyle like that, it would be toe-curlingly embarrassing.

    Ageing is tragic. Being 20 and able to do that stuff is not tragic, regardless of the hair and the 'check out da skillz, i's down wit da kids man' vocabulary.

    Sour grapes methinks :)

    You're obviously more out of touch than he is.

    Of course I am, I'm not a skiier, and I'm 30 years older than he is. :D

    Specifically, what am I missing here? What exactly is so embarrassing?

    Really? Are you sure? I suspect it's the other way around. But as an old fart myself I'm not getting into the whole skis vs board debate, especially when I see skills (or should that be "skillz") like that in a branch of a sport that seems to be more and more popular in the resorts that I go to.

    He's exceptionally talented at his chosen sport (and/or activity, since you'll argue it's not sport). He just looks a bit different and speaks like a teenager. So what... We all go out wearing skintight leggings.

    Snob.

    I think I agree with you Omar. But I'm not absolutely certain what you're on about.

    Do I agree with you?

    I think he's oh so desperate to be like the ginger guy, but isn't.

    He's attatched to too many pieces of wood for a start.

    Anyway, you guys sound like my wife. She thinks I should lay off the kid too as he's only twenty. At least she agreed he comes across like a total knob though.
  • lostboysaintlostboysaint Posts: 4,369
    As opposed to you who just sounds like a knob for trying to be too cool.

    Post some video up of you on a snowboard and we'll decide. I suspect I know where my money is going.

    How am I trying to be cool?

    Seriously, if you can't see why this guy comes across as a complete censored then you are beyond help.

    Even Rick Chasey is cooler than this idiot.

    And, I've never once said he's not good at skiing. Just that he's a complete chode.

    prized prat. 'Woodsy' that is.

    Come on you reds, he's grown up on ski-slopes, his parents are obviously minted and he has never worked a day in his life. Let the hate flow!

    Am I getting that youre the only snowboarder left in the world who has a complex about skiers? Most adults (hell, most 4 year olds) got over this 10 years ago mate...

    I am not, nor have I ever been, a snowboarder, whatever gave you that idea 'mate'?

    I am simply pointing out that Woodsy here is such a colossal [email protected] that it defies any reasonable explanation. And by being so, ensures (for me) what I've always assumed to be the case, that skiing is not cool. At all.

    Nothing more, nothing less.

    Interestingly, the BB regulars appear to be polarised on this topic. I can't imagine why.

    He speaks like that geezer who used to present the British version of "Pimp my ride" which was accutely embarrassing as it was allabout tarting up Nissan Sunnys etc and this sad old guy was talking like a bro' from the hood.

    The guy's a bell end, but he sure can ski.

    Girls, girls, girls - put the handbags away.
    We are very good at producing anoraks, weirdos, spooky people and nuts. I bet if he got arrested for saying 'Hollande is a tw4t', you'd all be up in arms and defending the eccentric Woodsy (remember the plane spotters in Greece?).

    Anyways, why does he look like a bloke who went in to Barnardos naked and came out 3 quid lighter ?

    You watched the video, saw how effortlessly he landed the jumps, and you're bickering about the guy's haircut! :roll:

    From what i've seen of professional skiers, this guy is pretty useless.

    And a massive tool.

    Yeah I'd like to ski like that, but give me just about any US/Canadian or European sponsored skier over that dofus any day of the week.

    he can talk how he wants he's going to be a winter Olympian.

    :lol::lol::lol:

    Stealing that one for my own!

    And well said lawrences, he can speak in tongues for all I care...

    Ooops, fail. He's just won the World Cup. Beating most of the US/Canadian skiers that you've just mentioned. From what I've seen of slopestyle skiers, in Canada, there's some awesome talent out there and he's right up there.

    Sure he can ski very well, but he does come across as a bit of a tw*t.

    Not that it bothers me, as soon as I hear "like" misplaced more than once I just stop listening and go and do something else.
