Video time with Board Insiders

24 Nov, 2009

Last March I spent 3 days at Stevens Pass riding and reviewing snowboards for Board Insiders, a new snowboard review site that would launch this winter.  They’ll be launching the site next month and I’m stoked to see the final finishes to their reviews make their way online.  Their plans are to put up “one video review for every snowboard on the market” and give snowboarders a place to find reviews that they can relate to.

The videos are starting to make their way up to the Board Insiders Youtube Channel and you can check out some of the boards in action.  So far the Arbor Cadence, Ride DH2, Bataleon Fun Kink, Forum Scallwag, Nitro Runaway and GNU Riders Choice videos are up.


I’ll keep you updated as the website launches and I’m stoked to see how the reviews come out from their side. Most of the boards I’ve ridden have been reviewed on my site but on there you can see them in action.

    While is great to watch these riders on the equipment, it is difficult to get a solid idea of a board when you have so many varying points of reference. Thats what I like about your reviews … they are all from the same person … so the results and opinions have one point of reference. Once you understand that, the information becomes valuable.

    Watching a couple of the GUY board reviews was just a bunch of mismatch opinions without any real points of reference. Its all purely subjective with no standard format of ideas, thoughts or references. And the random number at the end … What does that mean?

    Ill stick with your reviews and others bloggers I respect.

    Dazma, totally understand where you are coming from. I think once the website is up, it’ll make more sense and tie everything together from the riders input on each board.

    I’m amped for the launch and stoked to be a part of it, it goes beyond what I can do with reviews and you’ll see my reviews in a different way on there as well.

    I got your point and agree Dazma,

    but the Number on the end is the Average Rating of the Testers on their 0-100 Points Ranking. you shouldve got that tbh 😉
