Ahmet Dadali knows -better than most- that to make it as a pro skier, coming from the East Coast, you have to have that one-track mind, the drive to push though the bs and make it happen for yourself.  Ahmet and his 'I hate NY Crew', not only came form the East but helped shape the game in the world of street skiing.  Ahmet is opinionated and has no problem saying what he's thinking.
