I wouldn't even consider going to the page again.
You're correct, i don't really follow snowboarding enough to know everything, like i did when i skated. I honestly just like to ride. On top of that, im not really trying to argue. I'm just stating the fact that people like to jump to conclusions without any personal experience, or even experience through word of mouth. I'm assuming that he said all that crap about china and extruded bases because like any company, he doesn't want to say "Our boards are made in china and we have a less desirable base material than other, better snowboards" Plus just about every company produces a board with an extruded base. I can bet they're having china make the boards because it keeps costs down and allows them to sell the board for dirt cheap. I think this is a typical case of "you get what you pay for" and the snowboards probably are ****ty quality, but i can bet that you will receive one if you order one.
Article saying jason murphy rode for sims, and had a pro model. Though i never heard of sims, i doubt they would make a pro model for a guy that isnt a pro.
more digging showed that Jason murphy actually got the cover of amped.
I guess you dont gotta be pro to be on the cover of a video game. Take that tony hawk and shaun white!
