    Ver’ cool. Having occasionally broken and scratched boards with sufficiently thoroughness to see a few of these layers, I sorta had some idea what was in there. But still. Cool to see it being done.

    … And I should probably say somethin’ partisan and casually dismissive of Burton at this point, as the people at my favourite boardshop would probably be terribly dismayed otherwise (there seems to be some sectarian thing going on there… but honestly, I’ve little idea what it’s about–the only obvious thing I’ve noticed is the incompatibility of some of their boards with other binding systems–bad for me, as me and my enormous feet do love my Flows–and between this and the fact that I’ve hardly ever ridden any of their stuff, it would mostly be BS.
