What happens when a branch comes up through the center hole?

KahWhyC 03-23-2011 10:31 PM

I don't think those giant holes is going to help.

What if you snag a tree branch while riding over it lmao

East§ide 03-23-2011 10:37 PM

i guess its strictly for groomed runs and parks?

and honestly if you look at it, i dont really see how going over a brand would really fuck you up unless you got caught on a stump..but then youd fall anyway probably

Yea, I run over bushes on a daily basis typically. I stay away from Park laps and groomed runs.

That thing is so 3 seasons ago. I met the owners and got to ask them why they invented a snowboard that sucks at riding powder.

well maybe its the future for boardercross and GS...would be down to try it out...but I don't think I'd buy one

I don't think they understood me they were real Asian. They just kept bowing to me and gave me some really shitty pamphlet. I don't think I still have that.
