Everyone else is crap, we are the best!
Thanks for that impartial advice their Nivek
On the whole I am inclined to agree with him though, the good ride seems to make some strange conclusions about boards it would appear they haven't ridden.
I personally try to find all the info I can get on various sites and take them all with a pinch of salt. If you see several people on different sites making similar observations about the same board that gives you something to go by.
Personal preference has to play a huge part, nothing wrong with that its human nature.
Conditions will play a big role as well.
As far as I know there are very few independent gear review sites here in Japan (in Japanese). Maybe a gap in the market.
