I'm not trying to suggest in any way that it would be fast or easy. Simply doable for someone with above average disposable income. Start out in your garage with a basic press and handmade molds and you could develop a board that someone would pay for in a few years. It's not like boots, bindings, or outer ware where you have to go full bore from the start and risk hundreds of thousands of dollars to even get started.

why the eff would anyone name their company that?

Reminds me of that "Parks and Recreation" TV show. Leslie Knope is the main character...she's a joke and the name is a joke. The name is funny only in a comedic context. Snowboarding isn't a joke sport.

Because it was between Nope and Maybe and well Nope seemed more "core" after all we have yes and now.

CJ, I'll let you know what they are like once I have a turn on one. They are sending me a board at some stage.

Normally I ride in the North Island, but I think a mate of mine is planning a trip south this year. I need to generate cash by means of having a job first before I look at riding. Will let you know closer to the date.

Will be interesting to see how that Nope rides, Im hoping to get a fairly short one with full rocker (that'll complete the quiver). I won the darned thing, they were calling for an Aussie themed top sheet and i threw an idea to them, it got accepted. Haven't the heart to tell them that im a Kiwi. Still, its all the same to the Americans isn't it?

most definitely the same, shit its the same to some Aussies and Kiwis. Is the north island any good for boarding i mean I'm sure its good but how does it compare to the remarks and treble cone or cadrona, I'm not real keen on coronet peak to me its a boring mountain but maybe i just haven't been shown the good stuff by a local. Also if you get some time on some aussie slopes let me know it might be a good excuse to make a road trip happen!
