It's way over simplified and really is no more than a basic guide.
In their 'pick a stick' section they suggest progressive boards are for people who 'have spent 3 weeks or less on the snow'.

Their write up on the Whatever is pretty poor and consists of 4 seven word lines about TBT in general being catch free and popular with beginners and 3 more lines about the Whatever having a cheap extruded and therefore slow base. Shame really, their write ups on the rest of the Bataleon range are pretty positive.
The Whatever is in my top 10 boards for 2012, maybe my top 5. So freakin fun.
Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friend

Also, buy my things?
