Blank Snowboards?
 
Blank Snowboards :: Making snowboarding an affordable pasttime

Anyone have one? Im trying to find reviews or really any info on them. I might pick one up but kinda skeptical.

You should get one and let us know!

If I had more artistic talent than a fencepost, I'd buy one just to do that! Maybe a Jackson Pollock thing...

I'd draw awesome tits all over mine

I am really tempted by one of these, would be great for a second board! Does anyone know if they are any good? Or what do people think from looking at the website? Good thread by the way never seen these before!

That's the real problem, isn't it? There's no information on the boards other than price, length, and the fact that they're reverse camber. At minimum, they should have paid someone well-known to ride the things and posted the vid. Even without commentary from the celebrity rider, it would at least prove that the things exist and can be ridden.

These really are a great concept -- price is low for those who can't afford expensive (especially if they're reasonably good for the price), the blankness would appeal to counterculture, core, and anti-capitalism types, and the blank canvas is sure to have the would-be artists drooling. In fact, if you were a really good artist you could work a business off this where someone buys a blank and you do a custom job on it.

But to establish credibility, the Blank people should A) put up the aforementioned vid, and/or some reviews by known people, B) put up more info on the configuration of the boards -- at minimum whether they're directional or twintip, how soft they are, etc.

Failing that, I predict a big fail coming up.
