    Saw this posted by a friend on FB.

    Looks like he's going to be riding hardgoods and softgoods (read AK outerwear, custom, slx boots and diode binders).

    But aren't forum and special blend owned by Burton anyway? So, not exactly much of a change.

    they couldn't just leave him to forum? i guess it's all the same anyway.

    i believe in the line "it all works; get in where you fit in." nothing against B, but i don't think johnny fits well in there. i don't really know where i see him. maybe mervin? probably cause of his bro. plus when he's part of a gnarly trio with lando and t-rice who are both on lib....... i dunno. ntic of course :)

    Hope he gets a raise.

    I think the Forum/Special Blend/Foursquare is where Burton leaves the riders they don't want.

     I was thinking that he didn't fit in at all at Forum. Their catalog this year stated that they don't make boards for big mountain riding. Hope this means we get to see some vid of Jackson and Nico shredding together.

    Yeah I saw that, their "shift left" or whatever. As said its all the same company, I agree that he fits better over at the big B.

    I agree with Spenser. I think he fits with Lib. His bro is there + Rice and Lando. I wonder if the Burton guys are told what to ride or free to choose. Cuz it seems Nico went from a stiff T6 to a medium flex Custom. John J also on a Custom.

     you don't really know what's under the graphics, just sain'

    The B will probably want to tell him what to do, but I guess they want him for what he is - a big mountain heavy hitter, so, good for him

    Ahh the Nico Mueller board mystery. Dude is so good, he could ride a log. But when he got his own pro model, the Eco-Nico, it used a woodcore. And now he's using a Custom? This supports my theory he was riding a woodcore board with T6 graphics in the past.

    agree, forum is more of a street/jib thing it seems. bummer this means pat moore has prolly been shelved too then.

     this was a nice suprise for me. FWIW when I handflexed the '12 custom I was surprised at it's stiffness. but maybe it's because we've had 'japan-flex' customs here the last few years.

    I actually wanted to start a thread discussing which boards riders ride and what it meant since I was confused about Nico being on the T6 and then riding customs and custom x's. Wouldn't the barracuda be better for him?

    Totally agree. Would love to see Pat Moore go somewhere else (maybe Yes?). That dude is the shiz.

    In the latest Onboard Mag, Nico mentioned he likes camber, so maybe that's why he's not on the Barracuda.
