Ride was demo'ing their shit at my local mountain yesterday. As I walked by their little tent to the lift line, one of their reps asked me if I wanted to try one of their decks. The following conversation took place:
Rep: Hey Man, you interested in taking a Ride board out for a spin?
Me: No, I am interested in seeing Ride go out of bid'ness. I'm on the boycott tip.
Rep: I'm sorry to hear that. May I ask why?
Me: There is no way I am going to support a company that has actively used shit akin to racism, sexism, or homophobia in promotional campaigns to degrade other people, snowboarders, or snowboard companies.
Rep: Wow, now I really don't know what you’re talking about, man.
Me: Go ask one of your bosses at K2 about the trade show in 2004. If they won’t tell you, try Google. (And with that I walked away).
However, it did look they were giving some stuff away for freee…but not decks
