Post does any one know of any small snowboard manufacturers

does any one know of any small snowboard manufacturers
i'm writing a dissertation on the influences of snowboard graphics on a boards purchase and need a small snowboard manufacturer for one of my case studies

i wouldn't mind some of your opinions on how snowboard graphics influence a board's purchase?

thanks

graphics can make or break a board for some people ... example, i ride a wide board, and wanted something freestyle, burton had a gangsta grill type board with some dudes lips and a gold grill for the graphic, it fit me but i am not riding on a closeup pic of some dudes lips ... so i shopped around for another board of similar design, and another company got my $$

you should be able to search for a list of snowboard companies, ive seen them floating around, but not sure exactly where

In this day and age there is this magical invention called Google, it has this wonderous ability to bring up a plethora of information. It can also be used to help you flog the dolphin, I suggest you know it, learn it, use it.

Use the forum search for "Shallow Question". The thread at the top of the list should help.

^ Doubt it right now they're in full production mode. Plus they aren't so small anymore, this past year pushed them further than before.

Burton is pretty small. Same with K2.

I heard that the Elan factory is just some guy's basement.

Venture out of good old Silverton, Colorado, of the United States of America

Also try Prior out of Whistler, or Clyde from Calgary
