Why can't I buy the Snowboarding Whistler comic anywhere?
Basically it's banned from some resorts due to its adult content/coarse language. Consequently many places will not stock this publication. There are only a couple of places giving it a go at Whistler - Armchair Books (near the Grocery Store); and The Hub at Whistler Creekside (near Subway). You can also read it at the following libraries for free: Manly Library (Sydney), Whistler Library (Canada); and Park City Library (Utah, USA).
How much can I really bend and flex FreestyleMax?
FreestyleMax is not human and definitely not as strong as most human snowboarders. It’s plastic construction and joints will break if stretched to the limit. It does not have elastic muscles like humans so be careful not to stretch his body parts too much. The following diagrams may help you identify his key points of articulation or where you’re likely to cause him injury. Also his board is not made for flexing so it's a stiff board.
Is FreestyleMax an Australian company?
Yes. FreestyleMax is an Australian company based in Sydney. Manufacturing of the product however is sourced overseas.
How long will deliveries take from Australia?
Depending on where you request the product be delivered to, and the delivery service you choose to pay for, it could take any where from 2 to 14 business days from the time of dispatch from Sydney. See the table of estimated delivery times in the product details
section. Customers with APO AE addresses please note delivery may take longer due to circumstances beyond our control.
Are there any other types of Snowboard Instructors available for purchase at the moment?
There are 3 models available. FreestyleMax The Snowboard Instructor (red or green camo jacket); and the Mikkel Bang team rider edition. The red camo jacket is the original model, while the green jacket and the Mikkel bang edition have new design features.
Is there a FreestyleMax Skier?
No, although many of you have asked about a skier, you can convert your FreestyleMax into a skier. I've seen some people add paddle pop sticks onto the boots. Or you can make your own out of a product called Fimo (from art shops). Click here for an illustration of how to make your own skis. Page 1 and page 2.
Why is FreestyleMax The Snowboard Instructor more than just a toy?
FreestyleMax The Snowboard Instructor has over 30 points of articulation/hinged joints that allow more realistic freestyle movement than most toys. The Snowboard Instructor has realistic looking snowboard clothing and snowboard graphics. The instruction manual contains a username and password to allow customers to access a members only section of the website to learn more about snowboarding and what our pros get up to.
Do I get a discount for purchasing more than one Snowboard Instructor when I place an order?
Yes. For customers purchasing more than one Snowboard Instructor (in the one order) the second Snowboard Instructor receives a 10% discount; and the third Snowboard Instructor receives a 15% discount (maximum). To illustrate the prices pre GST for a purchase of three Snowboard Instructors, the first is $40 plus the second one $36 plus the third at $34. The pre GST price for 3 Snowboard Instructors is therefore $110.
FreestyleMax’s arms are stuck and I cannot move it back to a normal position. How can I see where the hinges and joints are?
In the members section under the tab marked “Other” we have shown a photo of FreestyleMax without his jacket showing all his points of articulation. Whilst we discourage the removal of his jacket as it acts like a skin structure to hold his body positions, sometimes his appendages may rotate out of position. Check out the “Other” tab accessing it through the username and password provided with your instruction manual and see what body parts move in which way.
