True, but the Afterbang is more than just gear, it could be a massive progression in skiing technology, or an absolute flop.
I personally am still freaked out by the idea of a wooden ski.
I kind of think the concept is flawed: never have I hit a 70ft booter on my skateboard, subjected it to water for long periods or slid it as aggressively as I do with a pair of skis. Also the fact that many of the Line skiers, TC, etc seem to favour the Chronic Cryptonite and Anthem over the Afterbang?
That's my $0.02. Just a thought.
Sex: the most fun you can have without skis on.
