Default This is news to me...

Well i just heard and read that Burton snowboards bought: forum, jeenyus, foursquare and special blend. Also they bought DNA Distribution which is Alien Workshop, Habitat, and reflex. What the hell. Im not a hater of burton but what are they trying to do?

Yeeahhhhh. That happened quite a while ago. That's business. If it wasn't Burton it would be Nike, Reebok, or another company superpower.

the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

yeah i saw it was a little while ago but new to me at least. Believe me i'm glad it wasn't nike or reebok.
I think it sucks when nike just out to make a quick buck with skateboarding and snowboard stuff cause its popular.
i try to stick to brands who are in it for the long haul.
MAybe that why burton got involved to save a strugglin company.

Lib-Tech, Gnu and DC's are owned by Quiksilver, oh and Bent Metal Bindings, not that I've ever seen those! So many "core" companies are owned by big corporate ones.

K2 owns like 50% of the sporting industry
