Default Why do people hate Flow snowboards?

I don't get it. I really don't. What is so bad about Flow snowboards? Not talking bindings here, I can imagine that those are really up to preference. But seriously, the snowboards can't be bad if people like Antti Autti and Scotty Lago are riding them?

I just got into a pretty big argument with two of my housemates (live on dorms) that said Flow snowboards are basically junk and their bindings aren't much better either. One of them rides a burton custom x and the other a forum something something. Can someone please explain me what it is that's so bad about Flow?

Actually I ask myself the same question. Defintely not too sure why people dont like it and why you really don't see anyone riding one. I looked on ther website and they actually don't really have a big selection of boards to choose from, and they have nothing below a 149 in men's sizes. They barely have any park boards, they don't have a jib-noodle board, and the rest of their all-mountain boards seem like theyre all the same. As for quality, maybe the boards are good, but as far as selection I think they're lacking.

Because your roommates are uneducated fuck sticks that ride pieces of shit and can't see past what they ride as another option. Next time they argue with you point out their boards probably came out of the same factory.

But then, why are there so many people that still instigate that Flow is not even close to the likes of Bataleon or Rome or whatever?

I don't think people hate flow it's just that there are 500 other boards that people find more interesting. I'm sure flows putting out quality stuff. They're just not appealing

And why exactly aren't they appealing? Not enough variety or something? Or just bad marketing?

Fuck if I know I can't read peoples minds why don't you ask them yourselves and see if they can actually formulate a legitimate argument as to why flows suck.

It's not that Flow boards are necessarily bad it's just that they are not amazingly good either. There are quite a few board companies out there and I'd say that Flow boards are probably on the average level.
