    Though Zeller is a local, Dugan killed it. You can tell she rides with they guys by her “bag of tricks” and her style. Way to go!

    While watching Mariah Dugan’s video, YouTube chose to show me an ad for Hepatitis C medication. Mariah sounds fun.

    the 50-50 switchup to zeach, sameway 135 out in the first edit was a hammer. red gerard is way better than both of these bitches, so apparently lacking a Y chromosome is a bigger disadvantage in snowboarding then being 12

    Michelle Zeller was at least going big and learning some real jump tricks. Style and board control can be improved (bend your knees! spend most of your season riding trees with boys). Mariah had much better style but doing the smallest, easiest stuff. I don’t get the disparity in the vote between the two, nor the blatantly disparaging comments about women (as opposed to the state of women’s snowboarding, which is a different story).

    And for the editing…. no one needs to see regular boardslides and 50-50, or just about any other trick really, on 1 foot tall park rails, boxes and mailboxes. Just looks dumb and detracts from anything good in the vid.

    Woman’s snow boarding is bullshit. The shitty go pro edits all the kids post from windells are better then this shit

    @beast coast being a girl is a disadvantage because of they way there hips are. as a girl your hips are better suited for giving birth. they are wider which points the legs outward and changes their center of gravity. makes a big difference. and even if you are better than both girls, there was a point where you werent but you probably wanted to be filmed anyway

    Just answer this simple question then,

    how come girls in gymnastics can do all sorts of flips and spins that are way harder on their joints, way more difficult, way more ballsy, and it even looks cool?

    michelle is a prime example of why i hate girls snowboarding. I was scared she was going to fall or hurt herself the whole edit. she looks like she is fighting herself the whole time with those JP arms, and her knees look uncomfortably stiff. Fortunately, those “grabs” are pretty diverse… along with her bag of tricks. I would pay to see a proper method, nosepress, front board, switch back 3, etc… mariah at least didnt scare me as much but still both should dump em out
