Mad props to 9thward for making snowboards. Or so that thread claims they will be making them soon. But just to let everybody know. High Society SKis/Snowboards has been making both since 03... so 9thward isnt alone in progression.
as I said in the other post, I give props to the freeride movement and esp High Society for starting it up.
At first its hard to imagine a company that makes both skis and snowboards would make both well, you'd think that if they dont focus on one aspect, then the quality across the board would suffer. But I rode an HS 171 all of last season, beat it to hell and it still rides beautifully. And from what I've seen the boards are just as sick too. I hope ninth follows in their steps and keeps up the quality across both skis and boards.
you people are crazy man. I think that its sweet taht the are doing that, it shows they want to integrate the industres together and create a skier snowboarding bond. I think thats dope. It should really all be one sport.
okay, i worded it wrong... i meant smaller newer ski companies that are branching out... yea salomon makes snowboards too, but they also make snowblades, rollerskates, hiking shoes, and about 900 products
I Think it's cool, I mean they are making snowboards and now people are like that's an error they were making skateboards before too... I think it's dope by the time they keep the same philosophy about the rider driven shit. if it is it'll be dope.
i dont think its a mistake at all.... We are all pushing for the same thing... its stupid to have such a division in 2 sports that are so dope... dope snowboarders have much respect for dope skiers and vice versa so why not support a company that is rider driven in the 3 sickest sports...skiing...skateboarding...snowboarding.
