The Smith Code is the first helmet I've been able to wear a beanie & goggles under and still fit my oversized noggin comfortably. I'm not going back.

Really!? That's the one I have and ifeel like it's terrible for that. Assume you took it the "beanie"? What about the boa. I feel like the boa always gets in the way that's why I was shocked the mine77 had one. Although that website is so fuckin shitty you can't even tell. Seriously Burton...2 picture for each piece?!

I'm also in the goggs under helmet camp. Been on my Anon Rodan for a little while now. Super light and fits well with my Airblaster facemask, Gnarly hoody facemasks etc. Def had to take all the inner paddings and stuff off though, for the perfect fit. But ya, solid helmet.

uhhhh ok, if he was a student while at that firm you best believe he was a coffee boy, OR working 12 hours a day. The finance kids that I've met that are right out of school basically sleep at their desks. Also if you haven't listened to "how I built this" with JB I suggest you do, I'm paraphrasing but according to what he said on that interview his aunt or grandmother(i forget) left him some money to start the company when they passed.

(Carpenter's high school education began in Brooks School North Andover, Massachusetts.[2] After graduating from The Marvelwood School, at that time in Cornwall, Connecticut, he enrolled at the University of Colorado at Boulder. An avid skier, Carpenter hoped to join the university's ski team; however, his competitive skiing career ended in a car accident. After several years away from college, he resumed his studies at New York University, graduating with a degree in economics.)

Sorry dude.  The middle class “starving” visionary doesn’t apply here.  Fuck, just look up how much the tuition is for the private high schools he attended.  I’m not trying to throw shade on what he’s accomplished, but he certainly didn’t “starve” while he built it.  He had plenty of access to finical resources...

 

You're not proving your point because I didn't say any of that, I'm just correcting the fact that he may or may not of been "rolling in it". His family may of been, that doesn't mean they financially backed him from the start. It's a lot of assumptions. In this interview he stated that he started the company with inheritance money when a relative passed away and nearly went broke trying to make it work.

All in all is it easy to start something when you already have? Fuck yeah, we can all agree that doesn't mean that it's easy to keep it going or not sell out when you have the chance.

Honcho I think what we were getting twisted over was the use of “hungry” In the “never young and hungry” statement. Sounds like you meant he was never starving to eat, he always had money. Myself and maybe a few others took “hungry” to mean passionate, hard working, never say die mentality. Which it sounds like you agree with and weren’t suggesting he wasn’t. I don’t think anybody is suggesting he wasn’t privileged or didn’t have or money or help to start. Anyway I was just breaking balls and wanted to do storytime. Didn’t realize it would spark a thing. 

I am disappointed now to know he doesn’t walk on water. Guess I’ll return those strap on boots.😕

Anyone had something like this yet? Rode my Mystery Fish yesterday... Heard a strange noise frum 2 bindings 2 times after landing a litte nose heavy on a small to medium jump...  Didnt notice anything the rest of the day. In the evening i wanted to wax and saw that... Its right behind the front screw on the frontfoot binding.

 

-- attachment is not available --

2nd pic sorta looks like the outline of a Channel insert, as if it was pushing out through the base.

thats exactly what it looks like in reality too.
super weird never had anything like this on a burton board.

Call B to sort it out. This shouldn't happen.

Will be interesting to hear if they warranty this, or claim over tightening or some shit...

overthightening should have done the exact opposite... like a negative bump. or am i thinking wrong?
i didnt overthighten them for sure. but i´m absolutely clueless what might have caused this.
well i sent it to burton and hope they will come up with a solution...

Did Burton sort this issue out?

It makes me worried cause I haven't take mine to its first ride yet.

Anyone knows which US stores carry AK457 line? I am eyeing on the Guide Jacket but not sure about sizing and fit, definitely prefer to try them on before making a decision.

Good plan.  Try on or know the return policy.  I found out the AK457 runs small(Japanese sizing I think).  Got a vest years ago and it had to go back.  Not even close to fitting.  Probably two sizes too small.  (Fat guy in a little vest)
