Back when I was selling snowboards in the '90's, I always got customers who dropped by saying how they "ripped" this or that, carving and skying jumps, laying elbows, or pulling 6' off the halfpipes.
I've gone boarding and skiing with at least 50 of them, if not 80.
Not once, did any of the guys do as they advertised.
Some were very good riders, but most just rode fast, skidded and slid, and rode like the sub300 day riders they were.
Oh, I also sold skis back in the mid '70's, which is why I included skiing.
