Sad to see the RFL boots go from the ride lineup, i was gonna get new boots next year, looks like ill have to go with the fuse, the slime-tongue look s neato. The split tail board looks like fun, and the asym board looks interesting too. I like the squared off tips look.
Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'
Drake Team looks the Tits. Nice materials that's for sure, anybody care to comment on their quality? BA surely you've had something to do with Drake at some point?
I'm liking the look of the Northwave Prophesy SLs also, my Decade SLs are on the way out. I reckon I'll pick up some 2013/14 Prophesies on the cheap because it doesn't look like there's been any tech changes.
All of the Arbor back country boards look delicious - A Frame in particular.
Drake the brand that gave up caring about snowboarding anywhere outside of Europe years ago. I would talk to them, but it seems they just further gave up on snowboarding in the U.S. by moving their office to Nebraska.
On a similar note, Northwave have pretty horrible customer service when dealing directly with them. I needed a set of new speed laces for my boots and I was pretty much told to piss off and ask a shop for some. Which is kind of fair enough, I don't expect a manufacturer to hold my hand but this was after only 30 days or so of use so at that point I expect a manufacturer to take some responsibility for their product.
On the other hand I emailed the guys at Vittoria who are the US distributor for Northwave and they had some freshies in the mail that afternoon. So those guys were unreal.
