You were replying to BurtonAvenger who originally posted that picture out of biting sarcasm. Do a quick search and you'll see that very few people on this forum support BitchBoards or Alex Masterson. It's not that she's a woman, it's that she uses gimmicks like the word "bitch" to sell snowboards that have nothing technical to offer a woman who can actually shred. I'm sure she's a nice person and I appreciate her effort to expand the market in women's snowboarding, but I have to agree that her boards are joke compared to what companies like Never Summer, K2, Gnu, Salomon, Bataleon, and Roxy are producing.

okay? I'll keep my mouth shut. BUT... it's really not fair to compare her 3 year old company to HUGE name brand ones that have been around for years & years.

Perhaps not in marketing but in quality yes. Since when does being a young company give you the excuse to make poor quality boards. Avalanche has been around for years...they didn't bother improving much. Ride has only been around for a little less then a decade, and look how strong they're going. What, bitchboards can't get a couple of good engineers on board? Do they not have the finances? I think the whole company is joke.

She makes shitty boards. She scams girls looking to get into boarding and sells them a piece of shit for more than your average Burton board costs. There's no excuse for that. Read her site with a critical eye instead of being transfixed by her oh-so witty use of the word 'bitch', pretty pretty colors, smoke, and mirrors.

HERE is how you start a snowboard company. No tricks, no pretty pretty colors, no idiot catch phrases.

"You go girl! We're empowered!!" and a fashionable sassy karate kick can be used just as effectively, if not moreso, than any other marketing ploy.

EDIT: It's all been said here before, just search 'bitchboards'. No really, do yourself a favor.

Not going to click a link to a shameless spam.

As for BitchBoards... Snowboards.net will never carry them that's for sure. Talk about an effin gimmick to rake in money from all the noob snowbunnies. I'm going to create a snowboard company called "PenisBoards". They'll come in all kinds of sizes and colors. I'm going to design the base of the boards depicting a huge sperm. I'll even make the core out of cardboards! It'll be super light!

I've never even heard of bitchboards until yesterday.
But penisboards...I think you got a great idea there Leo. Gives the term a hot wax new meaning.
