Beta-testing and QA are different things....

I've done gear testing for nearly 10 years in snowboarding. You never EVER and I mean EVER pay a company for your feedback.

My internet at work will not allow access to your site. Apparently whatever you're doing, massively secured internet connections are not liking it.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Hey ShredLife,

If I didn't explain the site very well, I apologize. The site is not looking for gear testers, but for beta testers of the website. We search sites like Dogfunk for products from the brands you love in your size that are all on sale. The site is free. Feel free to ask me any other questions here or directly jason [at] gearpass dot com

Hey Sabatoa,

Can I ask what's holding you back from signing up. Just want to know if there is anything we can address that would make you feel more comfortable. If it's spam, I can assure you that your shoe size is safe with us ;-)
