Not as sympathetic as the people on Instagram, given two posts ago he was travelling to Switzerland. Why is there X Games this year again?

Pretty soon the only thing visibly differentiating those with old gear from those with new gear is if they have a toe cap or toe strap.  

And the 2nd spoonful of stepins is even upending that.

Given he is the winningest contest rider for each of his sponsors, he probably had to show up at the Laax open and the FIS world cup.

Atlantis is back

https://www.mercidistillery.com/collections/vendors?q=Atlantis&sort_by=created-descending

Dumb waist widths.... 

Dumb prices. I was stoked when I saw someone was bringing back the brand, then I saw the prices. $800cad?!?!  I have no idea who their target demographic is. Only older dudes know/remember the brand but I assume they would rather spend far less and hunt for OG boards to hang on the wall than shell out for one of these to ride. And older dudes who do spend that sorta cash on a board are likely getting a fancy shape or FT board.  

It's a shame because Atlantis was always one of those mythical brands for me.  Daniel Franck and Ingemar were cool af and I wanted an Atlantis badly back in the day, just couldn't find one locally.  But I ain't nostalgic enough to spend $100 on a screened hoodie.

The prices look pretty normal to me. Set at 519€, ~$640 in USD. That seems about right for the European market... basically the number is slightly lower than whatever retail would be in the US, but euros instead of greenbacks. Feels like you're getting screwed more by bad currency exchange rates than the retail pricing.

You also need to deduct VAT from those prices, so the price is going to be lower than $800 CAD (probably closer to $700CAD off it, although you'd have to pay back a good chunk of that in shipping).

You're right, maybe I do get fucked by the exchange rate atm.

But fwiw, VAT isn't deducted for shipping to Canada. Total is 549EUR with shipping, so $851cad at the current exchange rate.  For some perspective, there's an infinite selection of freestyle boards I could get for less, ie a DOA for $630 or an Outsiders for $690.  Heck, I could even get a Custom (yes, I still use it as a benchmark) for less and call it a day.

And to be clear: I have no issues with $800 boards. However, I don't think these Atlantis are $800cad boards.

He didn't even get a chance to ride at Laax this year as one of the Canadian team members had tested positive, so the whole team was quarantined. So the X Games must have been a must.

edit: and he’s out due to having tested positive
