Letter to the Editor of SnowboardSecrets.com about this, and  Editor's Reply

Tara Dakides Sets a Bad Example

This letter was published Feb. 13, 2004 in the NY Daily News in a shortened version.

To the Editor;

"It's all about progression." That's what they say about snowboarding. What a bunch of baloney. In truth, it's all about conservatism, macho, and fashion follow-the leader.

When Tara Dakides performed a dangerous snowboard stunt on ramps and man-made snow outside the Ed Sullivan Theater for the Letterman show the other day, she was not wearing a helmet or padding.

Tara, because you didn't wear a helmet, you now have stitches in the back of your head. And probably a big bump. Doctors surely had to shave some of your pretty hair.

And you've set a marvelous example for the snowboarders who idolize you. Your actions have shown that it's better to look cool when doing dangerous tricks, by not wearing a helmet and padding, than to be safe. Brava!
