for one burton did NOT invent snowboarding... it started with a GIRL skiier, cant remember names and she was getting good and her father made it a challenge for her by welding 2 edges of the skis together... people did this for a season or 2. that got lame. THEN, Tom Burton or whoever came out with the snurfer, after about 3 years of that or so idk how long and several peoples attempts he PERFECTED the IDEA of a SNOWBOARD! BURTON did NOT INVENT SNOWBOARDING! some burtons suck big monkey nuts and others are good. but yet again it only comes down to your preference, whatever you are comftorble riding on is up to you. every company is the best for something, no company can ever be overall the greatest company. the reason why burton is so big is bcus they were ONE of the FIRST snowboards to come out and they stuck in there, there team shaun white (who is a massive prick) hanna teeter, and the list continues. they bought out forum last year and so now they own forum and jeenyus. 2 of burtons board and binding designers and engineers quit burton and now own the company everyone now knows of as ROME! i am not a burton fan but i will admit that burton has a couple of good boards depending on what you are looking to do such as jibbing, rails, jumps, backcountry, or just learning. every company has a good board for all that. but my top 5 fav brands are forum, ride, capita, rome, and technine. look them up if u have never heard of them... also look up stepchild theyre supposed to be amazing along with technine. if you can find them or their bindings anywhere besides online ill give u a cookie.

Burton is best because they are the biggest company, have the most ads, and have the best team.

(bait set...)

Well, I would have to say Palmer or Burton. Both are local to me (or were), Palmer makes quality pre-tuned, pre waxed, nice boards. I have no idea why they aren't more popular. I don't particulary like all burton boards (they have such a huge selection), but their gear is quality. My favourite jacket company is nothface. Expensive, but such good quality, and so comfortable, and in my opinion (I like brown/black/white stuff) styling!

P.S. I just saw my board (jussi oksanen) that I ordered at my local ski shop, and the owners said it was one of their favourites. It feels sick with the stock cartels they had on it. I hope it's as good with the ride rx's I got.

Actually I bet that's a true statement. In general BA demo's about 40-70 different boards a season. I've been riding for over 20 years and know I haven't ridden close to that many boards. Just sayin'. For all his talk, he does know product...

worst.thread.evar. i dont even know where to start with this one. i should just actually leave it alone but...

burton avenger, to even claim you've ridden more boards than anyone else on these forums makes you a complete jackass. you know nothing about anyone here. as mentioned above, some people on there have been riding for more years than i suspect you have been alive.

zumiezrep, to call someone a poser with a name like yours makes you look like a jackass. you are truly the pot calling the kettle black.

I might've mentioned a few brands in another thread, but I'll do it again here;

I've done a lotta research to look for a new board this year, cuz my money's burning a hole in my pocket, and i wanna get a board with some serious flex and pop... I've been hearing a lot about and reading a lot about Lib Tech, Technine, Rome, Ride and Forum. i won't look at Burton, cuz I don't think they're prices aren't worth it (for boards). Their bindings seem to be in a class of their own though, with some well thought out designs.

These are park board brands mostly though, I can't see myself getting a traditional board, cuz my first board (that i currently have, Option Icon) is a park board, and I ride down the hill just fine, so I think I'll be riding twin-tip boards form now on.
