|Incogneato||doc? as in documents? what? anyway the inca thing was a joke, you should relax. I'm not taking pot shots at anyone, you're just a funny little angry never summer puppet (ok that was a pot shot but like you don't do the same. If anyone here wants people to think they are a fountain of snowboard information its you, i'll let my posts do the talking, you keep doing what you're doing, whatever it is.|

Then NS launched the R.C technology and slayed Banana's. That was when the other designers finally decided to go along with what he was saying.
Now the people that awarded the award are fucking stupid ass skiers that have no clue about anything in the snowboard world.
As far as better marketing perhaps, but NS will have their spin in ads for next year and getting their just desserts. The thing that's going to bite Mervin in the ass is how much marketing they put into traditional Banana technology and how everything else is crap. They pigeon holed themselves and now they're tripping over what they've previously said. It doesn't look good when you take a rider of T. Rice's stature and he's basically saying C2 is just way better it's what I ride, when he only had a banana board.

I give them 3 years and everyone will look at Mervin like they do Burton now...they already are the "Burton" of park boards..every rat out there has a 'nana...
It is pretty shitty that they gave Innovation of the year away to a copied design, it would be nice for the smaller guys to get prop's once in awhile.
Either way, NS has proven themselves to me with my SL-R so ill do what I can to continue to support them and buy their products...

I was talkign to the NS rep about this (very briefly) at the NS Demo day this year. Apparently all you really need to do is change an angle or a radius just a twitch and it's fair game.
As for why Lib Tech got the award and NS didn't.... beats me.
