The box rule is put in place to protect us the users. If not the guys who can afford a new board for every race will have an advantage. ie. it will still favor the larger companies.
I would agree with the second post...OP will have to take a chance and increase his production output...or just grow slowly..most local competitions will not care either way.,.....either way talking about democratic choices just seems nonsensical to me.
chicken strap wrote:Its an easy fix, get rid of the production rule. Then anyone can play (or at least try to). If you want to equalize racing with gear, make a 1 design class. The gear for that class would have to come from one of the Titan's of the industry, because they would need to be able to provide equipment for people all over the world.
Of course, the one design equipment would quickly become outdated, and slower than the open gear.
I wouldn't race in that class, but I am just saying that is the solution. The production rule as it stands now is not accomplishing anything: you still can't walk into a shop and buy a board off the rack, and don't tell me it has done anything to equalize the gear. If anything it has made it worse, because there are only a few boards out there that are competitive, and you can't just get them easily!
THIS IS JUST AN EXCUSE BANAL
you do not want to allow anyone to grow
athletes and builders
with my board does not become a world champion
you must sacrifice and talent
you do not want to divide the slice, that is the problem
