BWAHAHAHAHAH! :lol:

Honestly, it doesn't look like they have much edge, I can't imagine they'd do well if you were trying to do any sharp turns or traversing across a slope.

My favorite part was the turtle speed powder charge...If you're in 1'+ powder and not going fast enough for face shots, what's the point?

Damn those are swaaeeet. I feel bad for the guy in the video wasting what looked like a pretty decent powder day on glorified roller blades.

Seems like a fun way to get to know a knee surgeon
To climb is to push yourself in a way you might not normally imagine is possible. If your stamina, skill, and luck are sound you will get to stand on top. ... I realized that with climbing, I'd found something that nourished my soul and could forge me into a better version myself - Jim Davidson

When you gotta resort to bad, hipster music to make something look cool,
it's prolly not a good idea to begin with. Perhaps they could borrow the hamsters from Kia
to make it look better....nah. Still wouldn't work.

It's like they took the worst of skis and combined it with the worst of snowboards.

Best white elephant gift ever.
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

If it wasn't an AF joke, some ignorant idiot(s) probably invested money to make that product happen. :lol:

Whoa there Keifer...bad hipster music? Granted, you may not enjoy hip hop (or maybe you do), but Gang Starr is far from hipster and even further from bad. It is music though. MC Guru was widely considered one of the best in the business and a true pioneer and godfather of rap (around since 1985). He passed from cancer in 2010.

Choice of music aside those dual boards have got to be one of the funniest things I've seen since, oh, inline skates...
