Compatriot Campaign

Came across this small Jackson Hole snowboard company trying to keep the shred alive, interesting insights into a small brand, anyone ridden any of their boards?

I was wondering about that. I couldn't find that specific information. But it seemed like that might be the case because they don't state anywhere "made in Jackson Hole" so I figured...
Im going to support him, I admire the drive.

Their boards are made in China at the Yaqui factory. Compatriot has been sold, resold, closed down, reopened, handed off, and now crowd funded. Sometimes you have to know when something is a losing investment and this is one of those.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!
