I disagree! Check the prices of a burton board and a comparable board of a different brand and you'll see why people bash burton.
Not quite. If you ACTUALLY do the research, you'll see that people making this claim have no basis for it, and normally are just repeating the same misinformation they have heard from other people. Since you apprentlly have not done the rsearch, I have done it for you. Please read post #4 of this
thread and then come back and talk to me about the matter.
I've also seen posts about burton having a higher rate of factory fuck-ups
I have seen posts that claim Bush is a great president, too. If you can provided substantial and verifiable evidnece of your claim, then I will believe you. Until then, I'll believe what I have seen with my own eyes. And that has been very few people having issues with their boards. Also, since Burton has such % of the market, it would make perfect sense that you would hear more about their boards having issues than someone like Never Summer, for the simple reason that a VAST number of more poeople actully own Burton decks than Never Summer (or Stepchild, Santa Cruz, Sims, Rome, etc)
and posts about noobs being burtoned out from head to toe cuz that's what's cool.
Right. And we all know that just because a mere "noob" is decked out in Burton gear, then that is the only reason the "cool" kids should not consider Burton products.
Who the hell bashes Nike anyway?
