Not to detract from this but has Smokin' Snowboards released any info about their line?

However, what I don't get, and I believe happens pretty often, is people that buy a board because they LOVE the way it looks. Again, looks may be a tie breaker, but riding a board that really makes no sense for you because it looks sick is pretty funny.

My two cents....
It is what it is. Trying to buy a board for my wife was crazy. She don't know nothing but how it looks.

So we sat down, looked at all the boards backcountry had. She picked out the few she liked. I picked out the best board out of those few. Mission accomplished. She doesn't understand rocker, camber, flat etc. just looks. After the new board though, she gets it now. The camber, flex and tech really do make a difference. She loves the board (and hopefully will be less reliant on looks the next time)

I hate to go back to the graphic discussion but goddammit NS, your boards are awesome but they are really fucking ugly—the best ones are the heritage and raptor because they have the least on them. Hire a graphic designer from the numerous art/liberal arts colleges from anywhere near colorado. Hell, you could farm out graphic design out to ice coast art kids or even a HS kid with minimal experience in illustrator—just get rid of the board graphics that look like someone with parkinson's disease stuck a crayon in their ass and drew stuff on a wet napkin.

And on the note of buying boards that look hideous and ride great, I love my Capita TFA but I think it looks idiotic—now if they made the outdoor living with the TFA shape, I'd be on that with the quickness.

You totally speak for two on that one.

Coudn't get pass the "It's not pretty enough" remark on countless boards with the wifey either...
