No love for Forum here which is bullshit. They make nice stuff. My board is real nice. Must be the Burton Haters since they own Forum now. Funny Pro's still ride Forum so they cant be that shit

FYI. My deck is the Grudge which is a great all moutain freestyle board. A little to stiff for rails but everything else its mint. Great for freeride as well. Fast and tight on turns and carving

How many boards have you owned? If out of a forum with 1000+ members you and one other guy think Forum is so great (I've only seen two members on this board brag so highly about their Forum boards one of which is a RECON piece of shit), are they really that great? They are the stool that ran down Burtons leg when they decided to expand to an even larger pool of capitalist crap where the name could exceed the product but it wouldn't matter because somebody will buy it for way more than it's worth and get on the internet saying it's a great product because they don't know any better. Their bindings are the same plastic garbage that Burton produces with cheaper ratchets and more weight not to mention over priced and over exxagerated. I've cut back on my Burton bashing the past year or so because it does sometimes flood this message board but come on, there are so many companies putting out better equipment than Burton or Forum so why would you waste your money to have a B or and F on your board when you could get twice the product for half the money? Rome Capita Omatic K2 Option Ride Never Summer (pricey but worth it) Lib Tech Gnu Palmer Arbor Bataleon etc etc why the hell would you want a Forum or a Burton at all when a lot of them are still $300-$400 when they are 40-50 percent off??????????

On top of that, a pro is going to ride whatever they hell they get from their sponsors not to mention the fact that Burton and Forum can afford to spoil the piss out of the whining little douchebags that ride for them (Shaun White) so why would they care? They get the top of the line gear from those companies which would cost the average human working stiff an arm and a leg to pay for. On the average snowboarders budget the B and the F are just not worth it.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?

I got love for Forum. Not sure what all the Burton/Forum hate is all about. If you don't like, don't buy it and shutup. You don't see me whining about how everyone and their dog owns at least one piece of Rome gear. Seems to me like Rome is the new Burton.

I love my Forum Destroyer and got it for a pretty decent price at $340 CAD before all the huge sales went on (woops!). It's a stiff board for being a park board, but if you've been playing hockey since you were a young tike like I have you have stronger legs than the average joe so anything less and it feels like a noodle under you. It's great for all-terrain and jumps.

I also got a pair of Forum Arenas which I REALLY love for a cheap price as well. Most comfortable and durable feeling piece of equipment I've stepped my foot in. Ultra light and highly customizable. Can't go wrong with that.

Now that being said, I used to own a Ride board and I loved that one too. Looking at purchasing a Nitro board soon.

Arrow Forum is one of the best companies out there

Mad love for the Forum Seeker, John Jackson, and Roost which I've ridden this season as well as other brands like Capita, Yes, and Smokin. I know way too many rippers who ride Forum so fuck what the haters say. Like my team rider Frank who won 7 out of 8 contests this season. He must really suck...he cant pick and choose what board he want's to ride AND HE ROCKS FORUM!

What does it matter how many boards I owned? Why do u take such offense to my comment? Have you ever owned a Forum Board? Have you rode mine? Are you me?
So you want me to go out and get a Rome or a Lib because so many others do? All I said was Forum does not make shit stuff but you disagree and feel you need to call me out for loving my gear. Maybe I don't care about the cost. As far a The Recon goes its a beginner board so experts like you should not be on one. All the other manufacturers dont make beginner equipment?

So your a Burton/Forum hater good for you but don't piss on me because I'm not
