Rare as a unicorn, but looks like a board = uni-board 😎

'Is that one of those speed boards or slalom boards?'

Me: 'Yeah, one of.'

'That board is so rad.'

Me: 'It's the only way I can keep up with my girlfriend.'

A kid behind us: Why does he ride in ski boots? 

Charliechocolate: He's too cheap to buy propper boots...

I was in uniform with my CVA group in the cut line.  Ski instructor comes up behind us and says "hey look, hardboot boarders!"  I said "haha, alpine snowboarders."  Him: "no, hardboot boarders!"  Me: "are you correcting me?" 🙄

At Breck, some liftie says; "Why don't you just ride a snowboard?". No comment.

It's all just sticks glued to some plastic. I don't get worked up about it, personally. I haven't regularly skied in 20 years, and I still use "skiing" as short hand for controlled falls down a mountain.

I rode up the lift once with an instructor who refused to acknowledge that I was riding a snowboard.  She called it a "carveboard" and insisted that I didn't know what I was talking about.

I wonder if she thinks Ross Rebagliati and Jasey-Jay Anderson won their gold medals in the Olympic sport of carveboarding?

Does anyone remember when this thread was about funny comments in the lift line that confirmed how rare this silly sport is? 

Oh, those were the days...

Back to funny stuff... 

Last night we had instructors training, with multiple groups and different topics. One of the students from the Level 2 Prep group pointed towards us (Intro Carving group) and my rig: "What is THAT?". His trainer (also my former student), said: "Oh, that's a carving board". I was on a Dynastar 3800 with 21/3 angles... 🤪
