Thanks for the feedback, The 18 inches is underarm to underarm.
Does that help.

Also we would love to get some gear in your hands for the upcoming season, and hear your feedback on it.

Send me PM closer to the season, and we will hook you up.

I understand this is a close knit community, and it was not my attention to offend anyway. All I was looking for was for some feedback on what we are doing.

As for giving back, we are looking for feedback on our gear, and offering it for free to seasoned riders. Isnt that giving back?

So you're saying only "seasoned" riders deserve something. Not anyone else? That's so fucked up in your logic. You realize most "seasoned" riders won't give a fuck it's the weekend warriors, new riders, and those that pour everything they have into getting to ride that 5 days a year that you should be going after.

Are you just some dumb fucking trust funder that finally collected and has the mental aptitude of a 15 year old?

You want to give back why don't you answer some questions, talk with people on here, shoot the shit, post some women in yoga pants, and the like.

You will be inundated with people wanting free gear after that post...!!!

It is your gear to give away for sure, but pick the right people. And if you want honest reviews then you need to pick honest people, which on here means people like BA who speaks his mind as you have found out...

You also need people who ride a lot, as wear and tear is something people need to know about, nit someone who rides 1 week a year, but someone who rides 100 days a year...!!!

Just out of interest, it is 2 questions i have... And replies would be appreciated...

1. Do you only sell online or do you have distributors...???


2. How big is your market, ie do you only sell in USA and Canada, or have you moved into Europe as well...???

The reason i ask, is being based primarily in Norway, we do see a lot of this stuff, and various different companies coming and going... I ride with a few pros, and while they are sponsored, they probably don't have sponsorship for base layer stuff, but that is probably of no use to you...

If you want to talk about getting it into Europe drop me a message, with your email, and i will get back to you...

Easy there BA.
I know what you're talking about - being involved in the community before you ask for something from it. I get that.

To be fair to the OP, he has apologized for just jumping in and asking for help/input.

And I have to disagree with the "only seasoned riders" criticism. If I was looking for opinions on a product - board/boots/bindings/apparel - I wouldn't be providing samples to "5 days a year" riders. I'd want the opinion of people who have enough experience to know what works and what doesn't, whether they care to buy the product or not.

Just like I wouldn't care about reading a snowboard review from a newbie. What could a newbie tell me, versus a star reviewer like, say, Angry Snowboarder (sorry, couldn't resist, but you get my point)?

To the OP I say, stick around, get to know the group, maybe enlighten us about your experiences starting up a venture in the snowboard world, and we'll be ready to support you with opinions at least.

Okay, enough of this rational shit.
Where are the yoga pants pictures??

He's talking about looking for seasoned riders to sponsor. That's just a marketing ploy doesn't do anything for you guys. He should be doing a give away on here for all of you honestly regardless of level ability.

He walked into a real world classroom right here and wasn't expecting a prick of a teacher. I'm harsh because I'm sick of shitty brands in snowboarding.

At your pricepoint why aren't use using silver threads for odour control?

Umm... I see rainbows and unicorns but nothing else "women's specific". I like like t ride men's boards, but men's clothes...? Won't fit. Girls are the ones always feeling chilly...
