I buy from eternalsnow.com now and again. Lately have been watching the steal of the day. Mad good deals every day, for sure! I have eternalsnow.com stickers on my board. Rep eternalsnow.com over zumiez any day.
best shop period and their store here in reno is massive..
I have been Buying stuff from Xtreme Adrenaline Boardshop Xtreme Adrenaline Boardshop :: Outerwear, Streetwear, Snowboard and Skateboard for a couple of years now and I have always had excellent customer service and quick shipping. They get back to you when you email them and quick too. lots of other sites don't even respond to your emails but XA actually cares about their customers. They have become good friends
This is not purely a snowboard store as such, but I picked up a nice Burton Duece board for less than 200 bucks at Sierra Trading Post – Great Deals. Great Brands.. They have quite a bit of other gear too, and they have daily specials. I only had to wait a couple of days for my board. If you know exactly what you want, this site is handy.
I've been shopping at Shoreline Of Tahoe for years now. They are always super quick to ship what I ordered and If I have any question they always know what they are talking about. Whenever I talk to them I can tell they live to ride and always know so much about every thing they carry. Def the best online store I've ordered from!
Hey guys, I work for Summit Sports Inc. We are the proud owners of Skis.com and Snowboards.net (previously SnowboardFusion.com). We have several stores in and around Michigan called Summit Sports and Don Thomas Sport Haus. Show your love and help us grow. Trust me, our customer service alone will be enough to hook you. I won't promise that we have the absolute best deals, but our prices are very competitive. So drop by and browse around.
Don't tell my boss, but I also like Altrec.com. I don't know about their customer service since I haven't had any issues thus far, but they do ship fast. Good selection and fair prices. Obviously, I get stuff from there that we don't have lol.
Edit: Just to add in here due to the post below me...
The Summit Sports "Ski-E-O" is big on "green" facilities. All of our brick and mortar stores are almost completely "green". Tile carpets and bamboo floors and things of that nature. So is our main office headquarters. He is very passionate about snowsports and he feels global warming is a big issue.
Since I am so closely connected to the snow sport industry and several brick-and-mortar and on-line shops I have fairly stong opinions about the on-line aspect of the industry.
The key thing I think on-line buyers need to know before they buy from ANYONE is who they are doing business with. The age of internet anonymity is gone and unless you have money to burn and don't care about if the industry survives for the long haul then by all means just grab your gear from anyone willing to give you sell you a board.
There is no trick to sending merchandise on time - once it is in the hands of the chosen mail handler the arrival of your gear is in their hands...not the hands of the shop you bought from. If you purchase from an on-line dealer that is fairly close to you then you will get your goods quite rapidly. You can also pay the extra $ to have your goods sent 3 day, 2 day or overnight...again, not a big trick. The big deal is what does the shop you are buying from do for you if things go wrong? Have they been in the industry for very long? Are they going to be able to STAY in the industry for very long? and what do they do to give back to the industry? Are snow sports better off because they are in business?
I realize this is a pretty heavy concept when you just want a good deal on some gear but the snow sports industry is at the cusp of some very big changes and some on-line shops are doing more to hurt the industry then help it - The fact is that NOT all shops are created equal and each time you buy even a bandana you affect the direction the industry is heading
With all of that said I'm adding my shops to the GREAT ON-LINE RETAILERS list
