    I have plenty of criticisms of that guy's ski technique, and I don't know how he thinks he's qualified to write about leverage position, but MAN is he rockin' that goatee!

    What a great idea this is marketing-wise. I love hearing about products from fellow skiers/peers. Nice video.

    @Chef23 I assume you mean "Ya know, I should really grow a goatee like Than's."

    Anyhow, I won't carry this crazy beard into the tournament season next year, but I'm still a bit entertained by it, and my youngest still wants to braid it, so it's gonna get even a little more ridiculous before it sees its merciful end.

    Best thing about the ridiculous beard midlife crisis: One day, you just shave it off.

    @scotchipman Thanks!

    All of my good skiing came in practice (especially on days with spectators) and at Regionals. My other tournaments ranged from disappointing to "wtf was that?"

    I am not sure I heard what he said; the goatee distracted me. Was @MikeT hiding in there?

    @than_bogan Nice video. I recognize the "Goode" background music, but the video is missing the Goode smoke intro and Dave Goode himself.

  • Than_BoganThan_Bogan Posts: 6,043 Mega Baller
    @fu_man Yeah, I don't quite rate Dave Goode himself flying across the country to my practice site!

    But he was incredibly helpful to me in getting the ski set up.

    Great skiing Than and thanks for your great information on N1, I shaved my goate about a month ago after having for about 15 years
  • fu_manfu_man Posts: 380 Solid Baller
    @than_bogan OK, OK, but at least they could set you up with the smoke intro
  • RichardDoaneRichardDoane Posts: 3,977 Mega Baller
    @than_bogan - I generally don't watch the propaganda videos that Dave Goode puts out, but since it was you, a fellow baller, I couldn't help myself. Congrats on a small portion of your 15 minutes of fame, and great skiing !

    I still don't know if this is serious or dry satire. It is entertaining either way.

    @ripa38 I am flattered that you think I have the production skill to make something like that! But anyhow, for better or for worse, it is serious. The only "fake" thing about it is that it took me two tries to run the -38. But in the past, I've run on the order of 1 per 400 attempts, so that day was truthfully quite awesome.

    And @Horton's implication (I think) is correct as well -- there's no way this would have happened without BallOfSpray. Without that "credential," nobody, least of all the folks at Goode, would have been interested in hearing what I had to say about a ski.

    In that case it is pretty cool. Can't wait to ski with Horton and see how many shades of green he has turned.
  • rfarfa Posts: 224 Baller
    I don't know @Than well enough to comment on the goatee, other than to say it was a little more "trimmed" when we talked at regionals...great skiing my friend (on the video and yes, at regionals...), and great site you have there now that I finally skied it this summer. "Hello" to all my friends at Cochituate!

    That goatee is real? Holy crap! That is worse than my hair.

    @Horton may have a valid point there. Just sayin.
  • Than_BoganThan_Bogan Posts: 6,043 Mega Baller
    And that was a month ago...

    Best line about it came from the founder of my company, who only knows me a little and hadn't seen me in a couple of months (but is never shy to say what is on his mind):

    "That is the most fake-looking actual beard I have ever seen."

    If you let it grow too long, it could throw your balance off in the turn...
  • Chuck_DickeyChuck_Dickey Posts: 1,459 Crazy Baller
    Speaking of throwing off your balance, I wonder how much water weight effect Marcus Brown with his dreds? Not bagging on is dreds, just wondering how it might affect his center of gravity.

    I told Than he looked like Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters with the goatee. He just looked at me kind of funny. Does anyone else see it or should I tone down my scotch intake?

    @Than -- very cool video! Congrats on some great skiing! I love watching video shot from the boat, especially -38. Why? Because -38 is short enough to be impressive, yet long enough that when you run it right (like you did) it looks awesome!

    It's no surprise to @Than_Bogan's mom that one day, Than would be famous for his beard...
