No wonder all of your product photos are all on the carpet, no snow pictures. Hah! You've been exposed.

Actually most are in front of my awesome Salmon colored door where I can subliminally make you stare at my K2 doormat.

This guy is a quack. Advertising money and good wood there is definitely a correlation. There's a lot of boards that "win" good wood and you get on it and you think how in the hell did this win?

I like how "the man" here is already back tracking.

Our resident blogger BA has already had the sad truth of buyers guides and magazine tests brought to light. Granted, it was from a different mag than Transworld. If you think Transworld is not doing the same, you are a fool, politicians and fat cats love you though.

Let me google it for you...

I'll take review from Angry, Burritoandsnow, Shayboarder, and many others with much more weight than I will any magazine test. Magazine tests are bought, plain and simple. I'm sure this sort of thing extends well past the snowboard industry too. You really have a lot to learn about this sport.

Bold statements indeed. Who pays TWS for good reviews? Tell me. And your saying they lie about their tests? Come on i just want SOMEBODY to show me some evidence of this lol otherwise limit your opinions to yourselves. sheesh. And i've been riding for 6 years, idk not a vet i suppose, nor have i ever owned a good wood board.

You are a fucking moron. Before you write a post I want you to reach down between your legs, feel that bulge that's sticking out your ass? Yeah, good I want you to get your forceps and do a anal cranial extraction. Still with me here? Awesome OK now that you have that fecal covered lump of gray matter out of your anal cavity and you're bleeding out your rectum I want you to reach over and grab a towel and wipe the shit from your eyes. Think you can handle that?

And since you are far too lazy and feeble minded to click the link Kill provided here's the direct link from my site The Angry Snowboarder Blog Archive Buying Into The Buyers Guide

Seriously? Listen queerbait, we know magazines are bought. Read and you'll know too. Who buys them? Oh I don't know, maybe the obvious. The companies looking to promote their boards. Funny how that makes sense huh? "Hey, if you would like to have a board 'win' in our magazine's 'top boards test,' just buy ad space and then for a little extra more we'll be sure to give something you put forth for the test a top pick." No, you're right. That is completely unreasonable and would never happen in this perfect snowboarding industry. Our bad.

Mob mantality, nice work everyone. To say that TW Good Wood is 100% not credible though, is just not realistic. The entire US market is run by public relations people, the journals we read are influenced by them, it's all around us, but some how we manage (or we hope to) to make purchases of quality goods. I'm sure this practice carries into the snowboard industry too, but to a certain extent, just like any other market.
