Because you have asked for it. We now have a Boards, Bindings, Boots, and Outerwear & Accessories forum in the equipment section. The boards forum is the former general equipment talk section. I have gone back and moved topics from the first five pages to what I think is the appropriate section. If you go back further, well it's still a hodgepodge and will probably remain that way for awhile.
I also left the review section alone. We have plenty of people who demo new gear, so post your thoughts in there.
