Forgive me for being pessimistic, but why does a company that is already trading need crowd funding...???

There are quite a few small independent snowboard companies throughout the EU that make exactly what this guy is making, but don't need crowd funding, so while this guy might make great boards, crowd funding is a way for advance payment on products (which for a pre-existing company says to me bad money management) or because he is not selling a product and needs to try to fund after failing last year...

I may be wrong, and his boards may be great, but i don't think this is anyway for a company to fund there products, and especially for a company that is, lets face it, doing nothing different to others out there...

Although the prices do look like they are a lot cheaper than normal retail for his products, which also makes me think RED FLAG

I wonder if this will do well...
