Hello Mountain Buzz.
This is not a troll. I never participate in posting stuff, but I often read the threads. I can't believe this hasn't come up as a topic...
I have a question for the community.
Obviously BDP and Bomb Flow are different "crews", but it seems BDP is a collaboration of new and rising stars, as well as some Bomb Flow boys.
So my question is simple: why do they hate women, and why do so many boaters in the community support these young, ignorant, foolish young bucks? Everyone argues that they're just having fun... but at the expense of objectifying and name calling women? I'm sorry, but I don't think 'they're just having fun'. I think they're towing the line of acceptable for attention and to rustle some feathers. I know a lot of feathers that have been rustled.
The BDP boys complain, whine, and brag (all in the same breadth) that they're not sponsored, but on their 'team blog page' they have athletes like Tyler Bradt, Anton Immler, Evan Garcia, Fred Norquist, and Brenden Wells... I think we can all agree those are sponsored athletes. They are associated with both BDP and companies. The companies (Dagger, Liquid Logic, Kokatat, Bomber Gear all come to mind) endorse these athletes, who then endorse BDP, and BDP posts stuff like this (from their FB page):
is a cheap knock off of BDP
. Don't trust that shit!!! We've been rolling hard in the paint and BALLS deep for years. Tits Deeps (fueled solely by their want to have more Facebook friends) is all about teasing their fans with the occasional topless shot from behind. You can't even see their fucking tits!!! You may get lucky and see an occasional kayaking shot of some chick on class III or some bitch fucking up their line on gorilla. Just know, these chicks are not as hard as BDP. They don't break backs, the don't smoke trees by the O-Zs, and most of all they don't have big fucking dicks like everyone at BDP. CHURCH OUT CUNTS"
Kayaking community, companies, representatives, ambassadors of the sport... why are you all ok with this? They're not just having fun. They have a twisted and sick view of women, and it's shameful to witness the elite of the elite endorse such viewpoints.
