Nope Boards.....Anyone know much about them?

Nope snowboards, does anyone know anything about them? Only reason i ask is someone is doing a massive push to bring them into AUstralia. Just curious if they are any good or not.

They're just re-branded Monson boards same tech & same board shapes being sold and marketed as "by riders for riders" by like 10 different companies. Angry called them on that a while back and they basically tried to punt it off and say that their true goal is to use snowboards to sell artwork or some shit like that and that making snowboards is not their primary thing.

They have a full custom wrapped BMW and a storefront in downtown Park City, yet nobody has ever heard of them. I don't know where their funding is coming from.

The funny thing is I was all about supporting them then they banned me from their fan page for asking a simple question. Then someone else from another snowboard site decided to antagonize them and I got brought up and they made outlandish threats against me for no reason. It was pretty comedic. Honestly dude don't waste your time.

Oh and their funding comes from cashing in about 500k of 2 401k's. They have a magical 7 year plan which near as I can tell it won't be here after 2 because of the way they act.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

To be honest I wasn't really interested when I found out they were monson boards an then after reading your page on tem followed by some other articles and then their Facebook page I wouldnt recommend them to anyone. I actually found it funny also what they wrote in response to your comment. And then they totaled thier BMW that clearly wasn't part of the give back to veterans plan!
