That's what I'm talking about!!! Maybe I'll finally win a board?

5848/260 = 22.49...giving 1 board away every weekday..it would take 22 and a half years to clear that inventory...then you factor in the bindings too, it'll take even longer. i agree with sideways..time to increase the number of giveaways and make room for other stuff in the warehouse...or are they really going to be ge giving away 25-year-old boards at the end?

Ah yes, the Rome-Sierra bindings... well, let me update my the-house.com shopping cart...

S90 S/M........263
S90 L/XL......1079


That's a lot of bindings.

The total on my shopping cart (all Sierra boards and Rome-Sierra bindings) is:

$1,483,340.35

... does anyone want to split it with me?

Are these real numbers sideways?  If so that is just completely mindblowing.  Maybe they should find a way use the boards/bindings to build portable shelters for hurricane victims or contribute something else useful to the world

If the stock availability numbers on the-house.com are accurate than yes, these are real numbers.  I plug in 2000 items for each board size in my cart and it adjusts to what is the actual number of boards in stock (at least that's the way it appears to work).

Not sure how this is going to display but here goes:

How are these under-privileged kids going to pay for lift tickets, transportation to/from the resort, jackets, pants, goggles, boots, bindings, etc? Snowboarding is an expensive sport.

Man... I want to know how many boards Burton makes... or even just one popular modle.

How many Burton Customs in about a 155 are being made this year?
How about Lib Tech Sk8 bananas?

I bet the numbers are truly mind blowing.

I think they want to make it last since they don't have to design another item to giveaway.

I live in the NYC area and there's actually a charity that does exactly that.  All the stuff is donated from various vendors and good samaritans.  There's a bus that picks up the kids, the mentors, and snowboard volunteers.  They drive us out to Bellayre Mountain and we get to teach these kids how to ride.  EVERYTHING is provided at no cost to the kids or volunteers.  There's a chapter on the West Coast too.  Check out stoked.org

donations! that's what charities are for right? raise money from good-hearted ppl..and maybe we can get some companies in the industry to sponsor. there should be a number of "less than perfect" products from the manufacturers that get shipped to thrift stores that can be donated too. if there's a will, there would be a way.

Allie -- can TS float these guys a few boards and bindings ???  As much as I usually want fewer people on the hill . . . this certainly seems like a worthy cause.

What happens when you have two people, both 6' tall. But, one is 160lbs and the other is 230lbs? Chin height is not a good way to determine board size for this reason. Weight is the most important factor.

I remember that theory, worst tip ever.  LOL  Sure, it works for some but not for everyone like the heavier people.

Your kids are a little small so they can probably grow into it?  LOL
 
yup, that's the idea Smile since you're fun-sized, they should be able to use it sooner than later.

What happens when you have two people, both 6' tall. But, one is 160lbs and the other is 230lbs? Chin height is not a good way to determine board size for this reason. Weight is the most important factor.

I remember that theory, worst tip ever.  LOL  Sure, it works for some but not for everyone like the heavier people.  
 
yup, weight is more important than height when trying to figure out what sized boards to use. the type of camber and type of riding also makes a difference.

That sounds pretty awesome, be great to be a part of that, helps both parties, get to ride and show someone new the awesomeness of the sport and at no cost...well its covered. =p

It really is.  I'm proud to be a volunteer for the organization in my third year now.  They also do activities in the summer and fall like surfing and skateboarding.  Same concept, all at no cost to the kids.  The kids get a mentor who interacts with them year round while "expert" volunteers teach the mentor/mentee pairs how to surf/skate/ride.
