Well, I would have to say Palmer or Burton. Both are local to me (or were), Palmer makes quality pre-tuned, pre waxed, nice boards. I have no idea why they aren't more popular. I don't particulary like all burton boards (they have such a huge selection), but their gear is quality. My favourite jacket company is nothface. Expensive, but such good quality, and so comfortable, and in my opinion (I like brown/black/white stuff) styling!
P.S. I just saw my board (jussi oksanen) that I ordered at my local ski shop, and the owners said it was one of their favourites. It feels sick with the stock cartels they had on it. I hope it's as good with the ride rx's I got.
