Hey Guys,

I want to know what your opinions are about the best buyers guide, both online and in print form.


Any input would be rad.

thanks,

Magazines sugarcoat everything. They find something good in everything new.

Funny this is a topic, I'm actually writing about the buyers guides that landed in front of me.

The above 2 sites are pretty good, and the reviewers actually criticize the boards, rather then sugarcoating everything like they normally do. If your looking at a specific board, I don't think you can go wrong with this forum, anyone who's ridden something is willing to tell you what it's like. It's how I picked my new board.

Yes and no. Because sometimes a smaller company gets a board in their every now and again. Not just the supercorps.

Reason they're not worth much is because the testers are usually given like 3 days to test over 100 board. That really means you get one run per board. How good of a test is that?

I stumbled across a buyers guide which is filled with good information about boards, bindings, boots etc. By good I mean information that deals with facts such as shape, camber, flex, construction, pop, intended use etc. Personally, I find most other stuff they say in reviews is too subjective to be of value. So, if you know what's out there you can look and ask for what interests you, then try it and essentially be your own guide

The magazine where I found the guide is Boardsport Source. It is a European publication...
