ridiculous! i gotta see him on his regular setup.
i always believed it's the rider and not the gear but the right gear for the kind of riding you wanna do sure does help beginners(me) get things down

No disrespect intended, and Yeah,.. OK! It's a limp dick, bendy piece of plastic shit, and he does a decent job of riding it! But seriously,.. Those ETT guy's were riding 2 by 4's!!!!!

...Honest to god, 2 inch thick, two by fucking fours!!!!!!

I don't need to see anything else to convince me that with great riders,..

Skill = Rider > Gear!!!!!! :thumbsup:

since joining this forum Ive learned to hate all my gear and want all new stuff. also watching "we ride" made me realize if people were better than me 30 years ago with a plank for a board, i should probably get better before getting nicer gear.

Not to drift off into semantics and philosophical stances, but doesn't this video underscore the argument for good gear to some extent?

A $1,000 setup is not going to take the weekend warrior beyond his own limitations, but I bet this dude could kill it a bit harder with a real board and bindings. Just sayin.

The blowhole on the back of the one board was hilarious. I want one.
Yeah, same here I think the only problem with his was that he drilled the hole straight down. I think if you angled it more you could get it to go behind you and spray others.

That could be really amusing to do with an old rental board just to see... Haha
