My New Joints!
2005 Ride Fleetwood 158!
With the Progression Core and 45 degree Thin Con, the Fleet wood delivers a perfect blend of easy turn-ability with advanced response and snap for a consistently solid feel on all types of terrain. 45 Degree Thin Con- tapering the core and designing a deeper edge angle makes the Thin Con more assertive and honed to Rider input. Tapered tips and tails power swing weight for greater aerial control, and the 45 degree angle makes certain the edge will grip into the snow, keeping turns consistent in the hardest of conditions.
Board Specs At A Glance-
Board Use- Freeride/all mountain
Measurements- Tip/Tail/Waist - 29/29/26
Board Construction- Full Cap, loads of power- long time durability

Core- Progression Core- With a tip-to-tail, rail-to-rail wood core for a predictable feel, forgiveness and proven strength and durability, this core is designed to instill confidence by way of a natural lively flex, making the progression from slide and glide to railing carver an easier, faster evolution

The term “Manufacturing Dissent” is a derivation of “the manufacturing of consent,” a phrase coined by Walter Lippmann to describe the propaganda engineering that he helped devise in order to drum up public support for World War I. Shepard Fairey designed his politically-charged pieces to counteract the hawkish manipulations of right-wing spin doctors with biting sarcasm and thought-provoking paradoxy. He juxtaposes symbols of combat with feminine imagery to expound upon his concept of powerful pacifism, the idea that force should be used as a means of protection rather than aggression. The explicit messages are a departure from Fairey’s deliberately ambiguous style. Rather than calling on people to question their surroundings, he asks them to fortify their values. While politicians and public relations gurus aim to skew reality into a more satisfying tune, Fairey strikes a dissonant chord, unusually lovely in its honesty.

Check out this new joint. Fun park board. I think this is the board for Toby!
Check out the video: MINI
RS: Rossignol Snowboards /
TM: The MiniRS: Good to have you with us today The MINI. I would like you to tell everyone why you chose
RS and what brought you here today…
TM: it started out 2 years ago with the idea to make a board that was very easy and super light, that everyone could ride, from beginners to pro-riders, and that could provide instant pleasure. It did not take me more than 6 months to become real and we have been test riding since then.
RS: What do you do exactly ?
TM: I am so easy to ride and I am sooooo affordable. Plus I ride good man. I ride everything super good. I can carve, I can slide, I can ollie, I can clear tables, I can handrail, I can 5050, I can rockslide, I can go switch… I'm twin man. Plus I'm 25cm waist width and everyone can ride me, adults or kids, big or small feet, beginners or pros. I'm like a grown-up board without the drawbacks. You don't need to go fast to have fun, you just take your time and enjoy the ride. I'm safe, very educational and user friendly, unlike all other boards on the market.
RS: Where would you recommend your own use ?
TM: Depends where you're at. Rentals if you are a shop owner... Day-to-day on groomed snow with your snowboard instructor if you don't know what you are doing. Day-to-day jib and bonk and occasional rails and kickers with your friends if you already know what your are doing but want to have fun snowboarding. Day-to-day rails and kickers with your friends if you really know what you are doing and consider fun needs new standards.
RS: Anything else to top this off ?
TM: Yeah, I am patented! So I'm twice as much safe.
