Less and less interested in the bigger brands boards for next season and more for the smaller brands like these, specially since they are local to me.

I used to shit on the GoodRide 4-5 years ago when their riding skills were terribly bad. But I have to say James' riding has gotten better recently. He can carve, ride switch, do a few flat tricks, and get those side hits - and that's better than 80-90% of shit riders I see on the mountain. For park boards, he's got Nick who seems very technical with tricks. 

Here's an example vid:

30s- 1:08

He's clearly not the best snowboarder you'd see in the mountain, and admits so. But I trust his basic characterization of a snowboard based on the amount of boards he rides per year. I actually trust him more than angry now, because angry has such a huge bias against stiff boards and never really accounts for snowboard sizes that he demos and shit on it solely because it was clearly not the right size for him. TheGoodRide is at least transparent with their riding skills and are not afraid to show them in vids. I think they serve the purpose of recommending snowboards to beginners, intermediates, and people who just don't have time to research/demo snowboards.

so what did you get from that video that you could't get from common sense and  reading the design copy and looking the specs?

did you really need them to tell you that a lighter rider would find a traditional camber, medium stiff board "harder" to butter than a heavier one? that its not the easiest board to butter? shocker i guess its not one of those mystical trad camber medium flex board without some sort of lifted contact point shenangigans that IS easy to butter. jesus

i wonder how it floats????

you mean it rides exactly how the manufacturer presents it does?

TGR is a waste of oxygen

What do these brands contribute though. Pretty much anyone can start a brand these days and have a snowsurf or green or whatever agenta to market the stuff they made in China.

I think I prefer discs. I wish Burton would still make one regular disc binding (like they did a couple of seasons back with the 'Classic' which was just a Cartel). I like EST bindings with the hinge, but I find they feel slightly different, something about the distribution of pressure from the straps doesn't feel quite the same as with disc bindings. 

Burton still makes I think every model in a re:flex option?

I think @cortado is referring to their old solid base plates/discs, cause yeah, every binding comes in Re:Flex. 

also, wasn’t the Classic a split binding?

lol not everyone spends all their oxygen reading up about camber profiles, thinks about how the board should ride, and then have an ego about such expertise. Yeah, I know how a snowboard is supposed to ride based on specs and profile, but maybe someone who doesn't take the sport too seriously would find those recommendations helpful. And for any beginners starting to want to get off the rentals and buy their first board, I would gladly recommend TGR as a resource. 

I could have a PhD in math but I still wouldn't shit on elementary school teachers because I think that knowledge is basic.

Some level of uniqueness of boutique that you cant get from major brands. People look to smaller brands for something different. So often, and to some degree necessarily, smaller brands offer fringe product. Stranda for instance makes long ass snowboards the Shorty is a 65 I think? They build long snowboards and are supposedly heavily focused on turning. Same for Korua. Unites Shapes makes what I would call "party boards", turny, playful... There are shitty little brands pushing a gimmick, like Gilson, there are rad little brands making cool shit, like Lago, Signal, Niche, Stranda, and Snofisk. It's hard to see through it sometimes, but a gimmick or anything claiming to revolutionize the sport is usually a crock of shit.

Sick, these are the kind of 2021 leaks we need. I'd rather see spy shots than these patent line drawings though. Also has anyone heard any rumors about the color palette? I'm getting hyped to have clean parking spots next year. I wonder when Zuzupopo will have the catalog.
