The Blackboard Experiment: 2017 Snowboard Review with Sage Kotsenburg – Intro

By on September 30, 2016 in Snowboarding with 0 Comments

SNOWBOARDER Magazine’s unbiased blank snowboard test, The Blackboard Experiment. Ten snowboard brands provided us with a snowboard of their choice, but the one caveat was that it had to have a black topsheet and base graphic, so as to keep the anonymity of the brand only between them and us. Sage Kotsenburg, 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic gold medalist tested every deck, putting it through the paces in Mammoth Mountain’s hallowed Main Park. For five days, from sunup to sundown, Sage was strapped into one of these blank decks and when he wasn’t riding them, he was jotting notes about how they rode on jumps, jibs, tranny and on the trail. The result is the most comprehensive snowboard test that we’ve ever put together. This is SNOWBOARDER Magazine’s 2016 Blackboard Experiment.
