Nike does a good job attracting brand whores, especially when you throw $400 pricetags on them, then offer an even shittier boot at $200 which is the one everyone actually buys, because it too has a swoosh.
Are you saying snowboarding is really just about marketing?

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!
