Firing Squad: Shane Bardiau vs Ben Van Avermaete

If a dude jumps a snowboard in the woods and a flash doesn’t go off, did it really happen? And, what’s better? A tindy off a fence or a delicate heel edge touch over a concrete block? Let the people decide.

    Nope snowboards is another one of those stupid companys owned by a SKIER. The whole big bold font thing was sick last year when forum and yes did it. No wonder this kid is grabbing tindy. Get that board out of snowboarding ASAP. Shane all the way. NOPE!!!!!!!

  • Pat

    How is #1 underexposed?

  • Some Asshole.

    Nope has to be probably one of the worst companies in snowboarding…

    they have a complete lack of respect for the actual riders and are completely out of touch with snowboarding its self.

    they claim local status in park city but they all JUST moved there to start the brand.

    And worst of all. They act as if its a big deal that they make their boards in america but the company cars are all imported BMW’S
