Looks legit.

Magic Hat is a Burlington, VT based microbrewing company. Burton is based in Burlington. It's not uncommon for them to make specially commissioned boards for companies to use as...

I've got a mix of Burton (easy to find) and Salomon snowboarding socks. I prefer my Salomons as they seem more durable (Burtons are geting a bit worn from rubbing against the liner fabric), and have...

Is that just on the ankle strap fabric/leather? I doubt it's going to cause any functional problem, but if you're concerned that it might get bigger, I'd guess you either need to sew it up, or cover...

I think you'd be ok between 152-156, depending on what you're looking for in a ride.

Here's a Nitro Prime Blast on sale over at ThinkEmpire. Starter board from a good company, standard camber,...

Price seems a little steep IMO for boards that are used and a few years old. The Catalyst has got to be 4-5 years old at least. That could mean a lot of use/abuse. You could probably do better...

What do you intend on doing?

Anything with an extruded base will be more durable than a sintered base (but suffers in speed), but that's just one part of the equation.

Get the medium. They're made for 27-32, so being at the upper range should make them pretty snug. My wife is around a 27 but with muscular thighs and they fit her comfortably, not very tight, but...

You don't need to shift to the rear inserts. The Brigade is a twin, but most snowboards these days are. What is worth noting is that it's a setback twin, so the inserts are already set 1" back. ...

Personally like the fit and feel of Unions now that I've actually tried/bought a pair. Union Forces shouldn't run you too much, are high quality, and good all-around. I also had some Ride EXs last...

Nice dilemma to have. :) The Machete is an all-mountain monster. Worth consideration, but $60 is $60, especially if you also need bindings and boots still (or just money for a lift ticket).

How much do you weigh, how tall are you, and what boots do you have? 146 isn't a very big board. My wife at 5'-5'1", 120 lbs rides 145... Unless you're on the smallish side for a Canadian male,...

I don't think that's too big. You're tall, but reasonably light, so should be well within the weight range.

As for your feet, it might be close, but it all depends on your stance angles and you...

This was corrected via a manufacturing fix to the 2009/10 Nitranes, and Ride offered free parts to correct the issue. Newer Nitranes should have the same problem, but it is worth noting. If it does...

There is no such thing as "wrong". Your stance is 100% personal preference. Not all of us are former ballerinas that can actually ride +18/-18 ducks. :p

Too generic a question. What's "normal" frequency to you? What kind of riding do you do?

If you park a board and do nothing but pipes, rails, trees, etc, then I wouldn't expect a board to last...

You should get EST bindings. It's a waste of the Channel/ICS system to not get EST bindings.

That being said, consider the Mission ESTs. As far as EST bindings go, they're priced on the lower...

A wide board will generally be too big for you. They are typically meant for size 10.5+ boots, and even that is a grey area. Size 11-11.5 can pretty easily fit on a lot of non-wide boards,...
