But I want my TV made my a TV watcher!!!! And my car built by a race car driver!

Designed and tweaked is one thing, built is another... Seems like in the race/BX/carving scene there's a lot made in Germany or Switzerland that get high praise. Oxess, Kessler, Virus, etc. etc.

At the Olympics it seemed that everyone was riding the same one or two manufacturers depending on the event.

Yeah Kessler or Oxess right? Both from Switzerland, and they both charge massive amounts for their freeride boards. Kesslers are $1350 in Canada, and the Oxess is in the $1800 range IIRC.

They seem to be the ticket to the races though, if you're not on one of them, you're not winning!
