While old, I think buying American made or from other counties with fair labor laws is important for quality. Happy employees will care more about their jobs and the product they manufacture, I would rather buy a snowboard made by snowboarders. I know some companies made in Colorado sell snowboards made by snowboarders.

I have an American Snowboard. America!

Weston? I know they are Co. I am interested in Homewood Boards. That is the only reason Googled it and found this post on the forum I am happily a part of....geez sorry if I restarted this. Just curious about some local people making boards. I didn't think that was such a bad thing.

Anyone that believes you "need" a snowboarder to make your snowboard is fooling themselves. You need a factory worker that understands that. China and Austria dominate in this respect. You will find a better finished product 90% of the time from a foreign country.

So if they said "made in china" you would like them more? I don't understand why you would continue to buy them? Is it because your a sheep following the flock? I mean there has to be a reason you keep coming back to them? Trying to understand please elaborate.
