HAHAHA!!  This thread is silly!  Come on already!!
 What's better Coke or Sprite?!  GMC or Buick? 
I don't think I'm bad... I don't box, no karate... just here to make friends with everybody

im not really for sure if forum is "made" by burton, but F is a subsidiary company of burton, ie. is owned by....

but either way... burton is NOT expensive comparatively... they are fairly on par with most everyone else

Burton doesn't "make" Forum, but does own the rights to market their products along with some others. Still not sure why this thread was resurrected.

Burton (www.burton.com) owns:

R.E.D (Rider Engineered Devices), Gravis Footwear, anon. optics, Analog, also Burton owns (purchases Aug 26th, 2004) the rights to the market products that are part of The Program and includes: Forum, Special Blend, FOURSQUARE, and JeenYus, in June of 2006 Channel Islands Surfboards,

I really don't understand why the Quicksilver Inc line isn't Red... I know that $3B is a lot of money, but Quicksilver is huge!  Such a large part of the international market.  Is part of it owned in private stock options??

As a side note: A rep told me a few years ago that the parent company of K2 (Jarden) also owns the original Bobblehead.

I would if I had the info, but I don't. I also can't take credit for the original chart since I didn't make it.

that is awesome! the slope list of companies is missing sessions! cannot skip that. haha. i think instead of a forum on burton or forum being better or this or that there needs to be a sarcastic response response topic for this. for example: whats better, getting kicked in the face by a right foot or a left? neither! its all preference!!!

i love it when people post and don't read a single thing in a thread, especially when the thread is long and obviously has a lot of repeated info in it... and especially when it's obvious it's just for points.

Wait.. What?? Forum is owned by Burton?? Shocked
But Burton's so overpriced!  I once knew a guy who had a Forum board, so it's better and stuff.

/kinda running out of ways to amuse myself with this thread.

I'm glad mollicap16 commented. I really needed to know this 4 times. Those posts also account for 4 of their 31 posts. Ugh.
