Biggest Snowboard Company Fails

My choice would be Option Snowboards. When I started riding just over 10 years ago, their boards were everywhere. I rememebr wanting to buy an Option Sansalone, but when I went back the next day to lay down the cash, it was gone. They were pretty good quality decks... but they bet their business on "flinserts" when everyone else was going to different edge and camber technologies.

Epic Fail Option!

The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.
Buy it... Ride it... Love it...

Lucid Notion. Internet opinions didn't matter. Where are they now?

I have the cliff notes from what I remember. Basically this dude was hyping his snowboard company as making the best boards out there. Basically claiming Neversummer quality. BA somehow met the guy and he gave him a deck. Which turned out to be a huge piece of shit. BA basically told it like it was and the guy said there was no way he could have a board and threw out a ton of insults at BA. So he produced a picture of the board with something like "fuck you Bob" written on it. At that point he was a laughing stock on the forums and our opinions didn't count. 6 months later bankruptcy and Lucid Notion was lost to the ages. It also goes to prove the internet can make or break a company.

Ride buying SMP.

Not a fail but I miss Movement snowboards. The original Solid line and the Movement line were some of my favorite boards.

Biggest fail = snowblades

Snowblades were so much fun! You didn't brag to your friends about it, but hilarious to ride. Kind of like chubby girls!

I saw 2 different guys break their legs so bad. Both of them the toes were facing backward and just shredded the bone.
