I found that for every Burton type company there is atleast 2 no name generic brands, usually made in China.
Its probably nothing to write home about..but for 40 bucks its a great deal and should get you down the mountain fine.
Usually if you cant find any reviews of the board anywhere(amazon/blogs/etc) then its a generic no name "beginner" board...
I would never pay 200 for those generic boards again...I did myself for my first board.
On one hand i dont regret it because it worked fairly well and really got me into boarding, on the other hand i coulda just taken that 200 bucks and gotten a better board to begin with...
