    hmmm I not sure how to take that... part of me is happy Line and Salomon quit because they were making shoddy products.... but the other half of me enjoyed their presence on the market, because they provided a big name to mass market a product similar to what we do.

    I can't wait till I have some money.... I'm not sure which boards I'm gonna go with yet, but I'm thinking the KTP or one of Revolts. I am so happy that another company is picking up the slack.

    Sure they are....without line, skiboarding wouldn't have achieved the popularity it did during the prime. Without Revel8 skiboarding wouldnt be growing as rapidly as it is. Don't think of line as the line that disowned skiboarding and became LAME...think of them as the ones that made some of the best skiboards of their time (alot like r8...making best skiboards of the time) By todays standards Line boards will always be low end...but in their heyday they were great boards.

    Key differences... J-Lev sucked and left for the money...and Greco is....well awesome and would never even think about leaving skiboarding and everything he has helped to build.

    You can't forget the history dude, as shitty as some of the people were...you can't just erase it. It is what it is.

    I am not trying to step on any toes, but that statement is a huge oversight.... half the people who started skiboarding started on boards like Salomons, so whether you want to admit it or not they were important to the evolution of the sport

    And current twin-tipping is nothing like it was 5 years ago, that doesn't mean that they don't owe what they have to the previous. We all do owe our respect to line for what they did for the sport. However, we also must keep a critical view for abandoning the sport. We can also look at it as a good thing, because if line were still making boards, who knows if the demand for Revel8 would have ever existed. We should all keep our roots at heart and not turn our backs on those that created us like many twin-tippers do. To say that we owe line nothing would make us no better than the twin-tippers that deny that skiboarding is their roots.

    Did I miss something ? Did I somewhere say they had nothing to do with how skiboarding is today ? I don't even feel safe posting on this board anymore without being eaten the fuck alive after every post.

    i've begun construction on the crucifix here at home...

    joey, ty, you guys can head over with the nails when ever you're ready and hang me on up.




    I'm done.

    ^ That would be where to me it seemed you said that line and salomon have no similarities to current skiboarding. I honestly have nothing against you Mark. It's just the way you said that sounded like you were basically saying that skiboarding today is infinitely better than it was in the day of line because we have better equipment. That is the exact argument that twin-tippers have put us down with. While it's true that our current boards are better, we shouldn't ignore the heritage behind us. I hate to see division in the sport, I hate internet flame wars, and I wouldn't say anything if I didn't feel that there was anything left to be said. Sorry to have offended you.

    On an entirely unrelated note, you might wanna clean out your pm box Mark.

    I'm sorry guys. and ska you were correct in your statement, no need to apologize.


    what i meant was, salomon and line are not currently supporting skiboarding.

    i imagine by tommorow what i've just said will mean something different entirely though.

    see everyone next season.
