    Ratings, ratings, ratings. Your reviews are great, but where do they fit against each other.

    hey shay,

    im a lurker and have only posted once on your site but your doing truly phenomenal work! keep it up and don’t lose the passion as this is what makes your site great! the only thing i would like to see are a few more video edits & as a lover of freestyle/ flatland ground tricks would be cool to see some stories on those awesome asian riders i have seen on youtube- their style of riding is completely different from the west. or just riders who push snowboard progression- scott stevens/ bode merrill etc thanks keep up the great work- this is what makes boarding awesome for me!

    I know this is not a travel site, but maybe even have guest posts on places to go/do/see? maybe a fellow blogger on Banff or you’re visit and write-up on Crystal Mountain. Finding unbiased reviews of where to go is tough, IMO.

    Love the product stuff, enjoy the industry interviews!
