How to review gear

I suppose we all take note of reviews, but sometimes there are some details or subtext missing that would make them more transparent and useful. Let me know what you think.

  • Rider weight/height
  • Rider experience: rate your riding ability in years/ability/links/foam-blasts
  • Recent video: even better, link to a relevant clip
  • Region and Conditions: Knee high wind slop to overhead groundswell
  • Affiliations: paying retail / paying cost / selling the gear / flow-team
  • Ownership: purchase / demo / borrowed
  • Gear experience: broadness of your gear experience from only 1 brand to all of them

In terms of the specifics of a review, @Rad_Duke has probably the best examples of a reasonable review with categories etc:
