Have you ever told a joke that's exactly your sense of humor and you're laughing before you finish but no one else gets it and now you gotta explain it and it ain't funny anymore?
Or you're being sarcastic because you're sarcastic and everyone knows that but instead of getting chuckles, someone got offended and now you gotta apologize for being who you are?
You ever just wish you could just be with a group of people and just be yourself and not feel like you're being judged and just have an awesome time?
That's what this snow season has been like with these people. I'm the first to admit, I can say some rude and offensive shit sometimes. But that's just how I roll and although I'll apologize for hurting your feelings, I'm not gonna apologize for being who I am. If you don't respect that first, how you expect me (or anyone else) to respect you and how you roll?
For years I've been riding with the OvRride crew and although they have been AMAZING, I haven't always felt like I could be myself. After all, as a beginner who's older, doesn't do the crazy tricks, and don't always understand the culture, I don't always fit in. I ride because I love to ride. But this season has been different.
I've met amazing riders who get me. Who make me feel like I fit in. Who allow me to be myself without making me feel judged. And although I'm no longer a beginner and can hang with OvRride crew at their level, I now found a crew I really enjoy riding with and another reason to love snowboarding.
I made this clip to get you to come out. No matter your riding level, your color, or what you do for a living, you can love snowboarding or skiing when you find the right squad. And look, everyone falls, not just you. We just get back up and keep having fun. Not gonna lie, gear, ski lifts, and getting there is expensive, but Outerthere Rides! makes it as affordable as possible with OvRride! So whether you're a beginner or not, or whether you come out with us or not, come out and enjoy our awesome east coast snow. Word.
#ComeOut #Feb24 It's my birthday trip and you're invited... Outerthere Goes Snowkiting! There's a lot of crazy (aka awesome!) sh_t out there to try and here's one of them. Turns out, every year, #Lake Sacandaga freezes over solid enough to walk over. There's also good, constant #wind. And a lot of #snow. Naturally, someone said, Hey, since there's no #mountains to go up and down, why don't we strap a #sail to our backs and let the wind drag us over the snow! #Surfers do it, so why not #snowboarders!? So, yeah, that's basically what they did and #snowkiting was born. Check out some clips, see what #gear you'll need, and sign up to join me for this ridiculous #adventure in #upstateNY! Go outerthere.com/out to sign up and come out! (link in bio). Shout out to the riders in this pic @rickyscorpio911 @ferlynn23
