jmacphee9 i personally have no prob with fashion in snowboarding...its all part of the experience of snowboarding imo.

to the people that dont care what they where its fine with me, to the people that where burtons 2015 outerwear already, whatever floats your boat, its all good. but when it gets too fashionable and being fake is when its gay.

... i don't know, i guess i'm just bitching and expressing self conscious-paranoia and buried feelings of inferiority. when i initially posted this thread i thought i was actually contributing some kind of insight.

carry on, folks.
Now now monkey brow......
a thread that has this many posts is definitely a contribution.....even if it is kinda silly....hold your head up high and kick those who pass judgment in the knee......

Where do you ride and what age group are you with. This sound to me like a bunch of teens riding on an old landfill in the east.... Out west, people are far more concerned with pow stashes and sick terrain to even really take notice

tomtom88 It's ust that everytime I have expressed this, society has berrated me and said no there is east, midwest, and west. So I just started going along with that idiocracy.

In the continental US you can ride the East, Midwest, Rockies or West (CA,WA,OR,ID,NV).
I completely agree, I've always thought it logical that West is comprised of the states you have listed with Arizona included. Then Midwest would be the states... screw it here is a graphic aid I made.

The states on the far left are west, next group is midwest, followed by mideast and finally east. This is according to my logic of course.

CaptT And how much wood...could a woodchuck chuck????
