Cannot contact Salomon regarding fake board
 
I purchased a Salomon Surface board while in Japan in February and have looked online to find the same board online however all online images of the board have a completely different graphic.

I have checked all of salomons websites and have found no easy way to get in contact with them. I sent an facebook message with photos of the board to their salomon snowboard facebook page and noone has replied (over 3 weeks)

Does anyone know of any other way to get in contact with Salomon regarding this potentially fake board?

But there is no photos ANYWHERE of this board, you are probably right I just wanted to get Salomon to confirm

It's a Japanese region specific board and an old model.

There is no money in faking an obscure salomon board. It's probably just a specialized board with some custom graphics. I've heard it's hard to get through to salomon. Go to a shop and see if you can get a reps number.

Sometimes manufacturers change the design after a small run because they aren't happy with it.

Most larger companies produce japan specific decks that are usually softer, shorter and have a smaller ww for Asian riders .
That's probably what it is.

Guessing it might look like one of these?
【楽天市*】SALOMON SURFACE の検索結果 - 板 スノーボード ウインタースポーツ(新着* ウィンドウショッピング 在庫あり):通販・インターネットシ ッピング
Even if it isnt on that page, as well as being quite likely a Japan-specific model/design, it might also have been overstock from a rental market design. Especially if you bought it cheap from London Sports like i mentioned to you in your last thread.
