Default Burton "Good Book" Magazine Ads!?!?!

Ok so I know everyone will have an opinion but seriously Burton? Have you guys seen the ad with the holy bible of snowboarding the Burton Good Book? Wow... I am all about controversy but I don't think I would go there. It's kind of like getting drunk in a random hotel and throwing the bible at a friend....well maybe not entirely but you get my point.

Anyone else notice the 2010 420 kit on the right side? Wonder why they never have the 420 kit in the catalog or online?


This is the book but not the magazine ad I am referring to. I can't find it online and I am to lazy to scan it. So you will have to look at the new Transworld or Snowboarder mags or buyers guides!

Controvercial for sure. Personally as a strong christian I find it kinda insulting. Something I'm really going to care about and complain about? No. Not worth my brain power. Dumb none-the-less though.

Meaning they're going to lose their whole team except whitey? and then basically die?

That and be part of the wonderful world of sports authority. There's only 2 options when you're at the top you either stay there and fight for everything to keep it or you stagnate and die.

How can they stagnate they just came out w/ a snowboard that cost $1500. That sounds like progression to me

We have had this discussion already. Progression is when we get lazer edges and a slap'n'chop stomp pad to make snocones on the lift. Until that happens, we are stagnating.

Eh, just another silly marketing attempt. I'll continue to support other companies by spending my money elsewhere-
