I'm amazed that so many people don't realize Burton, Ride, K2, etc... boards are made in China. BA's list is pretty damn good. Includes all the ones I knew about, and plenty that I didn't.

Yeah my slackcountry is made in china, but it seems like pretty good build quality. I would never pay full price for one of their boards though. If something is made in china, I expect to pay less than something that was handmade here in the US. K2 has also moved most, if not all of their production to china.

I'm pretty certain that Capita builds all their boards in Seattle Washington.
