Wink fav board in terms of design? + why the hate on burton

Sup guys.
I wanna grab a new board and have been looking about at stuff online. Im not one of these guys that car alot about how the board works (ie flex an watnot) just that it goes all right.
That being said I am happy to take on any black diamond run there is and have been boarding for about 7 years. (currently 18 years old and bulletproof)

After that speel i want to get a board that just jumps out at you graphic wise. This seasons gear seems to be chillin out and past the in your face graphics. i remember a couple of seasons ago everything was WOW check that shit out. fluro colours and graphics that are slapping your face the second u glance.

So whats your favorite design, favorite images an all that shizzle on boards.

Thanks,

Also, what with the hate on burton? any gear that ive had from them works great, and wasnt to overly priced.

EDIT: also ive got big feet so if ur favourite board comes in wide would be sick

Troll thee not

The burton hate threads do the rounds every 6 or so months on various sites and theyre ALWAYS started by people saying "i dont get it! why the hate on burton?"

The next 6 pages are people all proclaiming that they dont get it either and its just jealous idiots that have been suckered in by the anti-b hype. In the midst of it someone will state something about burton being "overpriced" and that person will then be sacrificed to the troll gods as an example proving that there is such a thing as an anti-burton bias in forums.

Honestly, its an exercise of genius publicity thats so intricate that youd think burton had come up with the strategy themselves to slag off all their rivals by creating an anti-backlash backlash.

But they didnt.

...Or did they?



Basically if you want your question answered, its probably better to just ask about the boards youre interested in and not tack on the much more interesting meta discussion about hype and marketing

I, personally, think the Lib Tech Travis Rice graphics are sick. And those boards go better with bigger size boots (11+). You can find a 2012 for around $450.

my favorite board graphic of all time is the 2007 rome artifact with neon lights

how can you go wrong with a board that says LIVE NUDES on the bottom

@snowolf
1-i enjoy my riding a shit load now. while i am not into the wholle checking the specs of a board 100% i do have a look at the little "advanced to intermediate'' or 'beginner to intermediate' guide that all the brands ive come across give out. thats all i need. unfortunately im not a pro so i dont need to know the exact thickness of each piece of the sandwich in my board.

2- check my first post on this thread, it says something along the lines of 'whats your fav gear.' or something to that extent. the main reason for this post was to get peoples opinions and find out what people like and think is cool etc. a thread for the sharing of peoples likes and designs. im one of these apparently rare people that like to find out what other people think.

3-trolling an shit. whilst it can be funny in meme form,im not all that into it. im sure u must see alot of this but im not really into doing it. seems to be a waste of time. really i wanted to know why people hate it because any experience ive had with burton gear has been fairly positive.
currently im running some burton boots but ive got flow bindings and board, because i like them. not tryin to be the sick lad who creates an argument or anything its just im fairly sure they put out some fairly decent stuff and like any corp u can expect some shitty gear.
just sayin that i love being proved wrong. i try and learn something from it.

side question, do you search for burton hate forums or what?


@everyone else
Keep the cool gear coming, love to know what u guys are into
btw loved the look of those ride boards

To be honest Snowolf, I didn't find the post all that bad (albeit a little flippant) except the bold, that could definitely be misinterpreted.

I think it's his sloppy writing more than anything. But I could be wrong, maybe he wanted to be a dick

Posers buy a board because it looks cool.

Pros buy a board because it preforms well.

That's my 2 cents on that.

We have had plenty of "Why U Hate Burton!" threads on this forum, so we have seen this shit rehashed over and over and over forever and ever. There is no definitive answer, and asking for one just creates these long awful threads that remind me of the comments section on IGN. Fanboys vs Haters in a long, drawn out unintellectual battle for supremacy.

God save us from these threads.
