Yah, saw this a few days ago, I think on Angry's website.

I understand creating something to meet a need/solve a problem, but where is the need here?
First day of lessons you are taught to control your edges by sideslipping.

Clearly, the answer to an unasked question.
Sigh.

Is this a joke. The only moron that's going to buy into this is the asshole who will be most hindered by it being there in the first place.

Snowboarding is hard enough for people to figure out as it is. So lets add another level of difficulty?

This is so fucking stupid. This will hinder progress rather than help it.

That'll really help you lock onto rails.


How would someone not get laughed off the mountain with this silly device? That 'instructor' just lost all his credibility.

I wonder how many resort around the world would allow this. Groomers will be f****d in half an hour

This will only make it harder with one more thing you have to think of..

I was thinking the same if you pulled it on a 50-50..

Why did he lose cred? He surely got $$$$ for saying that. I say kudos.

For all we know, it is the owner of the company in an instructor coat.

I thought of that too. It would dig some nice, big trenches.

What is with all the gimmicks these days? Why can't we have more companies dedicated to making good boards, without gimmicks, with good tech (carbon fibre, kevlar, quadraxial FG, rubber, etc.)
