god help me not buy a moon buggy

IMO the Leaderboard and the MB is the only interesting thing in the FT line this season given the size and sidecut.  I don't understand how the internal swallow tail works, but let god forgive you in making the decision.

Torsionally softer no? Isn't that a secondary function of a swallow?

yep, softer torsionally, but able to handle being backwards occasionally/temporarily

I feel slightly bad getting annoyed with them, they seem like they actually have special needs. They even managed to find a woman who's the same for the women's reviews.

I agree it's hard to glean helpful info from their vids, esp with their random tangents/bits. But tbf, maybe they're going with the whole "not take ourselves too serious" angle? 🤷‍♂️.

That said, just watched their HTH vid again. That was pretty bad actually, after watching in full (ie. interpetive dancing? lol wtf).

The real takeaway from watching their vids is realizing I need to hit Mt. Bach sooner, than later. Place looks like it's always dumping.

Is there any other sport that has something similar to the good ride or angry snowdouche? Can these things even exist outside of the fucked up world of snowboarding.

It is embarrassing seeing these nerds representing our sport. Where the fuck is the All black shredder, his reviews were legit.

To give a pubic hair of consideration the Guuder Riders were reviewing on a pretty decent pow day. I might be equally as stupid with pow brain.

But then again... not drool bib levels or stupid mixed with wishy washy non-statements. Good f'n Lord it's insufferable. Listening to them try to say something without saying anything is like trying to jerk off with a soft dick.

The lady reviewer was more tolerable but still too much talky

And yes, a few other industries have (imo) similar reviews of products in a sense that they're mostly garbage. I'm thinking of some off road reviews of stock trucks which are equally as filled with "goofy antics", "jokes" and "innuendos".

I was going to say in my post, except djing. But I’m talking about sports not hobbies like building toy trains. Sports usually weed out people that are not good at the sport. But some how in snowboarding you can slide by with dog shit skills. Is it the money factor?

Cause snowboarding is more of a fun activity that anyone can enjoy than a sport. You don't have to be athletic or dedicate an extreme amount of time to be able to slide down a slope.

Something I've noticed for a long time, that might contribute to this, is that there's no real measurement for being good in snowboarding. A guy got to the bottom of the hill without falling and he's a good rider. All day without falling (for those obviously not pushing it) he must be super good. Some kid that can barely carve straightline bombs it top to bottom and his app said he went 80mph...must be "good". Hit the kicker and did a grab...must be "good". Even if you go by the diamond scale, well I've seen plenty of heelside heros getting to the bottom of a black. Someone does a double black so they must be "good". There's no 'kickflip' or '360 flip' or measurable scale to know if someone is actually a ripper. Whatever the metric, all the things that make someone good can also be done poorly. 

How skilled a snowboarder is, is more just something you see when you watch someone ride or ride with them. It's hard to tell otherwise. Even among EL I'm sure there's plenty of skepticism of each others true skill levels since we don't all post videos or ride together. 

But this leaves the door open to everyone basically having the ability to be an opinionated expert without any easy obvious way for someone to know if they're good or knowledgeable. But I think this does happen in lots of otehr areas too. Camping gear reviews. Tech reviews. Etc. 

Or it might just be that most all snowboarders are just goofy kooks and we're just dealing with the number odds.
