  2. Twin says:

    Thanks for all the hard work, i read every one of em =)

  3. e says:

    just curious, no crapita?

  4. Jon K says:

    Holy shit a metal unicorn!10 die-cuts and a t-shirt please. Thank you.

    Oh and the reviews were alright too.

  5. txester says:

    No nidecker-yes-jones ……. only your fucking american brands jajja nice

  6. Tell you what why don’t you email their U.S. distributing guy and see if you can actually get through to him. Guys fucking worthless.

    Oh and Crapita I’ve got a priceless email that said “fuck off” cause they weren’t interested. Awesome public relations over there let me tell you.

  7. Snowfox says:

    Any chance you’re going to do an editorial about the email in question by chance? Would be a fun read I feel, haha.

    (Also, push for Sentury)

  8. There’ll be a nice lil mention of it down the road probably. I could have gotten a Sentury if I had called the owner but I was overwhelmed at the time and just said fuck it.

  9. knight says:

    sad to see no coda but great reviews of the stuff you did have

  10. e says:

    It is impressive, that’s a crap load of board to test & write pretty indepth reports about, add to this that you(& interns) spent some actual time on each board. I don’t think people know how much work goes into this.

  11. There were no changes to the Coda so they didn’t send me one.

  12. […] The Angry Snowboarder Blog Archive 100 Days of Review Recap has reviews for both boards. I haven't tried the Blacklist yet, so I can't compare. […]

  13. […] The Angry Snowboarder Blog Archive 100 Days of Review Recap 100 days of reviews all in one tidy list. Written by our very own Burton Avenger who you probably saw or will see harassing new forum members (be careful you may be next ) Also Nivek has a few reviews in there, including the Westmark for 2012 (BA has the Westmark Review from 2011). I've read those reviews probably 50 times before ordering my board. […]

  14. Sierra says:

    I thought I see what you thought about this idea and you can take it for what you will…You should have a list of the all-time best snowboards, say like the top 10, 8,7..whatever you wanted. This would work in 2 ways. One it would piss off all the other magazines for undermining their annual selections and 2 It would piss off all the marketing people from other board companies for calling them on their BS and keeping them honest at the same time. The way it works is have like a static top list…if you’ve tested a deck that takes out one of the boards from that list so be it…Basically it would be as if you were setting the bar for the next best board to come along. Every year new boards come out and seem to make last years decks obsolete which in a way is kind of sad. There are still great decks out there from last year or the year before, but nobody will know since its all been washed over by the latest decks of the coming season lineups….anyway, like I said – do with what you will with this information.

  15. I have something real big coming for 2013 that could change the industry.

  16. yotonic says:

    Hey El,

    What were your top three park boards for pop?


  17. Arbor Dely Ray, Technine Camrocker, Forum Destroyer DoubleDog were up there and I’m sure there’s a few others that stand out. I’m going to have a whole break down kind of comparing boards by price point next month so look for that.

  18. jones says:

  19. […] budget. Nivek loves a few things from Signal. Plus there are K2 boards. Check out BA's reviews: The Angry Snowboarder Blog Archive 100 Days of Review Recap A bunch of park boards […]

  20. doug says:

  21. hhaidar says:
