About time someone gave me a brake.
Your lucky brake!
We can fit them in CP3 over a lager on opening w/e or arrange a postal transfer before
You legend whippet.
I'm heading to/from Sydney some time in the next 7 days. Perhaps i could drop in?
You've got my number bebe
Get a room. Remember the Christian Right looks down on degenerates like you.
What? Two men experimenting with the dark side?
Its nobodys business that they tele!
PM me, work's on the HWY
I always thought Cory and Fred might be Tele-voyeurs!
Free the heal, free the sexuality. And get a bit of a limp and all that.
On bended knee
Whilst yer down there...
Pretend to yawn.
New gear has all arrived now. Bit dissapointed with the colour scheme. Think i'm going to have to get my highlights done again before winter as my hair is definitely going to clash with ski binding combo when they are over the shoulder. Bit heavy for carrying also.
Go the Mullet, it's full heavy metal now bro, none of that itsy witsy dynaweeny foquer tap dancing stuff.
Hit the gym and then go the perm!
The curls get the girls
Curls get the girls but i'm a "if there's less shrubs the tree trunk looks bigger" sort of guy.
Dont wanna scare em off
It may be two inches but it does get very angry!
Just do what I did and quietly go grey.
I see now where you get your extra oxygen from.
Chop it off and throw it away cos Tele is sex on skis.
You won't need it once you join the Tabernacle of Tele. Every turn will satiate your desires as will the anticipation of the coming season!
It's starting to sound like IS propaganda. But i'm believing the hype and i'm pumped. Do i get 69 virgins?
Yes but they be hairy
Been watching tele videos to get a feel for it. Have worked out why its like sex.
It'll be ages till i get to do it and i probably won't be very good at it. May throw in the towel (so to speak) after a couple of turns.
Hope you didn't do that with sex
And pay lotsa cash for the pleasure
Well they call me Victa and its not because my lawn looks good.
Zip start? One pull and you are under way
Yup, it's all about the motion bebe!
All of the above.
This is a good video:
Good vid and I understand where the guy is at. It never ceases to amaze me how the freeheel fraternity is so obsessed with gear, and one wonders wtf is in those heavy packs. Whats the point in having the latest hardware when at the end of the day everything comes back to technique. I wouldve thought money spent on coaching should come first which would save anyone so much crash and burn time. Within the flick while paused during a turn checkout the stride length in some and where the rear knee is at and how verticle the boot is. This is such a taxing position that does not allow your body biomechanically to edge the skis, consequently a whole bunch of bad sh8t starts to happen.
So if youre serious about learning to freeheel get some coaching first and the rest will follow. You definately do not need tele specific skis as any boards from aussie skier as an example will certainly do the job.
If you are not packing a titanal splork, you will suck at tele, and no amount of coaching will help. And you certainly need a pair of gaiters, and a spare pair. Dont let the fact that we dont wear them turn you aside from the one true path.
And my bellows.
That's where I've been going wrong. Will buy some tomorrow. What about knee pads?
At my age I find absorbent pads work well.
If ya need the pads you're going down too low
Can you recommend a good tele teacher?
And behind technique is fitness. Tmarking is athaletic. Antidote for hypertension and LDLs. Gives you thighs of steel, rippling pecs and decs, and makes women swoon at the sight of you. And men.
It's either that or the BO.
My telemark induced thunder thighs get in the way when I am doing ballet class. I am yet to see any blokes swoon as I ski by either.
That's cos you ski too fast almontyrat.
Kieran, damn. Maybe it's been that all along. Or the cheesy feet. Sigh.
That's not BO, it's that pleasant aroma of wet woollen army pants.
Is that like pumping iron?
... with commentary.
The mone part is all about the ladies reaction when they get a whiff of that bottled backcountry aroma. They just can't control themselves.
