    I like golf but I'm not good at it. I saw Rodney Dangerfield in movies, yes. Funny guy.

    Paradigm and stereotype both shattered.

    I'll say what everyone that's read this far is thinking...

    You've got a good head on your shoulders and a pure heart. And your English is better than most on the this board.

    I was a ski jumper first. When I discovered snowboarding I felt freedom, and I'm keeping riding until today. To me, any time I go riding, it's special and beautiful. There are still so many places I haven't been to and I'm super motivated to check them out.


    Also, how hard is it representing an organization like P.O.W. in a country with a tough political climate like China? So far the Chinese Government seems to have put more focused on developing and stabilizing their economy than reducing carbon emissions.
    The government is doing their thing, I'm trying to talk to my friends about POW and do what I can to contribute and raise awareness.

    Where'd ya get your English skills? Certainly not just Google Translating our fascinating questions...

    Why the quick and huge increase in Chinese tourism to the US and other places? More disposable income? New middle class? Big marketing efforts from the west?
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    It's a little bit of everything. Also, the young generation is curious and appreciates travel more and more. People start to think they want to broaden their horizon and learn more about foreign countries.

    The last question was completely serious by the way

    How do your parents feel about you being a "professional snowboarder"?

    How many times do they ask you if you're going to get a real job?

    Have you been to Whistler? Do you want to? If you do want to, get in touch and I'll make something happen.

    Hi LeeLau, I've been mulling over this, especially what you first said.

    I'm happy to know you.

    My parents are happy, and they understand I have a different career than other people.

    In the beginning they wanted me to take some factory job, but I didn't want that.

    I've never been to Whistler and I want to go. Let's keep in touch.

    Hi meter-man,
    Xinjiang has good snow conditions and great mountains. A lot of the terrain is pure. Every year I go there to ride and explore, and will start using my new Splitboard there this year.

    What is favorite big mountain area to ride? I'd like to know for planning future China-ski vacations.
    In China there are a lot of untouched mountains waiting for people to go shred. I like Xinjiang (Western China) and Northern China best. Check Google Maps. Cool places are near Kanas, Altay and Changbaishan. If you are close to planning a trip, let me know!
