i understand what you are saying, but i think you are exaggerating your point. my original observation was that my board failed to perform to expectation.

is this the board's fault? not necessarily. it was designed with a specific role in mind and so has a definite bias. consequently, your arguement that anyone can ride anything on any terrain is true, but only to a limited extent.

the range and diversity of boards, lengths, profiles, styles, and integral features illustrates the truism that some boards are better than others at certain things. such qualitative distinctions ensure that some boards can be ridden on some terrains by all riders, to a greater or lesser extent.

does that mean that the Rome board sucks in soft stuff, well of course it does, when it is evaluated in the context of boards made for the soft stuff, or by a rider who expected something different.

you seem to have intepreted opinion as fact. but it is fun to see people leaping to the defence of a brand.
