I don't think it's even a chinese symbol. I think it's just a hyperlite thing. you're talking about the thing that looks like the head of a trident right?

If you are referring to the Chinese character, not symbol, that looks like a 'M' turned upside down...then the character refers to the English word Mountain as in the Rocky Mountains. I don't know why they picked this particular character, but at least the board looked better than the last two years of Premeir graphics.

hyperlink 08-18-2004 2:28 PM

yeah, thats the character, i agree it looks better, even though i think im the only one who liked the last year board graphics, now im curious why it would have a mountain character on it, in that case it says anarchy in the mountain??? whats with that <BR> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by hyperlink on August 18, 2004)

The character first appeared on his original board that had a Chinese theme. Remember the Chinese mask on the top and bottom. I don't think it is an H. Also, how

wakestar8878 08-18-2004 3:08 PM

I know what board your talking about. I may be wrong on if its an H or not, but it is one of Hyperlites logos that means Hyperlite. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by wakestar8878 on August 18, 2004)

looks like an HL to me....

on the 02 premier with the chinese guy you can see at the bottom that the "m" in the word premier is the symbol upside down.

doubleup144 08-18-2004 7:07 PM

Chinese? That's a Japanese mask.

flashalexb 08-18-2004 7:32 PM

Yea to me it looks like a HL like DTB said.

snoobs 08-18-2004 9:17 PM

It means "danny harfs pro model" in Korean. Case solved.
