Default Morrow still exist?

Hey gang, I've been snowboarding for quite some time and didn't think about a forum for it til recently, cause I have a question I can't seem to find an answer on...

I'm planning ahead for next season already (thanks to a rock over the weekend) and would like to get a new board for it. I had a Morrow Drive back in the day and loved it and would like to return to my roots so to speak.

Their website's still active but appears to still show their 12/13 line. I'm finding the odd online site still selling them new for fairly cheap; and if it doesn't work out it's good enough for at least a season not a huge loss.

My question is: Does anyone know if Morrow is still around as a company and still making boards? If it is the end for them, I wouldn't mind trying to ride a Morrow one last time...

Avoid Morrow at all costs. It's not the company you know and love. Hell I think it's actually dead now except for the abundance of price point crap that was dumped on the market.

Well, that's dissapointing, but thanks for the heads up, my other back-to-my-roots choice is Ride. I know they still exist and should be quite good. What happened to Morrow then?

K2 Corp bought them up. Sucked the name dry, made price point crap, let it run its course till the name was destroyed. -short version.

It's a company. They come and go.

K, if you loved your old board so much.

Why would you want to get a new board.

Why don't you get your old board, you know, the one you loved?

I had an old board I loved too, back in the day.

Sadly it broke.

I spent 20 years tryin' to track another one down.

Just picked one up last year.

Fuck yeah, can't wait to ride it again.
