SBX did nothing to get people to want to snowboard all it did was make idiots that didn't know how to ride just go straight and hope they didn't wash out or hit someone.
In terms of boards, sure. I was talking more about mainstream appeal beyond just the snowboarding community. I don't think those people realize you can ride a snowboard outside of a halfpipe.
