When I do a high-speed toe-side slide-slip, I call it the "Flying Leaf" in his honor.

Seems like a nice guy to me. I thought that coors commercial was pretty funny.

I fell asleep watching Further and woke up to my dog chewing on the DVD case. Three hours later he died of lead poisoning.

I heard he was in charge of decorations for the TGR Christmas party that culminated in the lighting the company tree. It was so lame. The energy efficient bulbs took forever to heat up.

But seriously, I Met him at Squaw this season. Dude had a bunch of David Gottorff stickers all over his board.

Eight year olds dude. SMH


So when can we pre-order Higher?

Well I guess it's not enough for them.

Jones Snowboards has responded to not using US production and they have said that there was not capacity and capability here. Take it for what it's worth.

I am also sure Jones Snowboards' pro athlete, marketing and distribution/rep budget is much larger than Voile and Venture because Jones is really trying to be a household name. Voile, Venture, Prior, Smokin' etc. do not market as widely and are not as widely distributed so that costs less.

In the end if we're all sitting here on the Internet debating this, with all our gear, driving and flying around to recreate there's going to be hypocrisy and compromises involved. To think otherwise is absurd.

But seriously wtf is up with the Coors comercial. That pretty much killed it for me.

Every time a frat boy takes a piss, a flower grows in JJ's yard.

But yeah, I'm with you on the Coors thing, wtf? Trying to sew up the splitboarding country music market?

I keep thinking of Bill Hicks' routine on celebrities who do commercials.

Funny...

I heard Jeremy and Jake were going to use their offshore income to purchase MRG and Alta, remove the lifts and personally put in the skintrack every morning, then beat up telly skiers camping in their parking lots. :rock:
