Nobody else is going up. I’m tired. I’m broke. It’s too warm. It’s too cold. I need a new deck. My boots smell. I think I broke a rib on that rail last Thursday. Etc.
All excuses to keep you off the mountain. Forget about them. Put your motherf@cking rage face on and get after it. There’s always* an excuse to go snowboarding. This little promotional vid from Protest Boardwear, a Dutch outerwear company, nails it.
It’s kinda creepy (I half expect some creepy upside-down dripping vampire toddler to stop-motion crawl up the stairs) but also pretty intense, and the contrast is great. I have been unable to confirm rumors that they manufacture clog-style snowboarding boots.
*Note: your boss might not share the same zeal for sliding sideways that we do, so exercise good judgment and don’t abuse your pow sick days.
