To be fair, he's only ridden highly rated boards. He does say what he doesn't like about them though like the Machete flex rating.

I wish everyone would do reviews like this as well. Sad thing is, not everyone can afford ESPN level equipment. Of course his stuff will be top notch.

I would love to see BA do that! I still want to see a video of you riding in general BA. I know you have some somewhere! I heard stories about your crazy presses.

That would nice to see!

You don't need much equipment really! just a GoPro helmet cam, a friend with a 2nd cam and a phone with good set of speaker/mike (ultimate ears) and video edit software.

Cheers...

In my mind I imagine watching a video of BA riding to look something similar to one of GWAR's music videos.

Understood, I didn't watch any of his stuff so I didn't know. I've run into that same problem myself. I've really only given maybe one bad review, everything I tend to grab end up great boards.

Where the hell do people hear about me doing insane presses? Was Dave talking about me doing moving Tail Blocks?

Like I've said I wish I had the equipment and time to do it. With the amount of stuff I review I seriously need to hire a filmer that will ride with me daily and edit together a review daily. It's more work than I have time for. Hell think about this I'm doing 100 days of product reviews starting next month I have 30 something reviews stock piled for that and I'm sitting here looking at 12 more things that I have yet to ride that I need to review still.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

I don't recall any presses but I did take notice of those moving tailblocks. I dig it. I want to do that. But every time I picture myself attempting one, I imagine myself catching an edge & pinwheeling in to a faceplant.

Well I bet BA forgot that the liner tongue sits inside the liner and not on the outside. He also tucks his pants in between his liner and shell for more steeze. Duh.
