Did anyone see this at the bottom of their Kickstarter?

Threats
The greatest threat to our product is the potential for knock offs or the introduction of an inferior product that has a greater promotional budget. The greatest danger for this lies with the Burton Corporation. We intend to mitigate or nullify this by:
Rapid market penetration and recognition through product placement and social media. Van Bregmann has a social media guru for the on line promotion and search placement for the Quick Stance. Our target audience communicates via social media.
Secondly, we will initiate multiple licensing agreements with smaller board manufactures so they can sell a board package that offers their unique design with the latest in binding technology.
Thirdly, we will pursue copyright and patent infringements aggressively.


They're basically saying that any money they get is going to be thrown at legal fees. This is just pissing money away.

you actually made it all the way to the bottom? I stopped at the "Our slightly elevated base increases carving agility while reducing toe and heel drag."

Once again, not being a park rider. Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't understand how this helps to learn tricks or new tricks?

The ONLY statement from the video that did make sense to me, was the rentals. I could see how this might be advantageous for a resorts rental dept. If it worked, I could see it speeding up the process. Other than that,...?

Btw, anybody else wonder how easy it would be for that to system to unlock and swivel at an inopportune time?

Have to do my research on this before I write an article.
