Where are boards made?
 
I've been curious about who makes their boards where. Who mass produces their stuff in China, who rips boards by hand in their backyard, who runs small batches in local outfits, etc...

Pure curiosity here, it's not a loaded question.

(If this has already been discussed to excess in one thread already I didn't find it)

Factories. The answer you want is factories.

Mervin makes Lib, Gnu and Roxy in the states, Never Summer is also made in the USA. I don't really care about any other brands made by ski companies or made in China boards.

My Elan is made in Austria. I really like buying things that aren't made in China, because fuck China that's why.

Whistler - Prior

Colorado - Donek

Germany - Virus, Volkl

Switzerland - Kessler, Nidecker, Oxess

China - 95% of the rest of the boards out there...

That said, I don't know what the hard on about locally made boards is. If they made cell phones in the USA would you buy one? I wouldn't, it'd be a hunk of crap... :D

Appreciate the posts so far.

Not looking to start a country (China) bashing session...check that stuff at the door.

NeverSummer has their own facility I think? At least one other board company uses their place as well I believe?
