The only people into racing are the europeans so of course they all ride european snowboards. Those boards remind me of the late 80s when you saw guys on 190 boards and hardboots and a small freestyle board was a 165. Hey poutanen a buddy of mine just took delivery of a new Virus snowboard here in Calgary.

Sweet! Hardboot or softboot? I know hardboots are exceptionally gay (I usually try to tell them that myself) but I'm probably going to join some of the hardbooters at Nakiska in Jan to work on my carving. I love to carve hard when there's no powder available so who better to improve with than the carvers themselves!

The group buy boards should be on their way to me soon so I'll have plenty of board porn to post. Three of the four we got are freeride boards, so the porn is applicable in this case...

Cheers!

I thought I was going to be the only Avalanche rider in Calgary! I'd like to board with this guy... hopefully he didn't pay full price! Maybe don't tell him I had a group buy! lol

Used or new? If it's one of the boards from the states I think it wasn't the right size for me anyway. It was my fault for missing the $650 Kessler deal in the first place! ARGH!

My snowboards (Mervin & NS) are made in the US. My DH/FR mtn bikes (Intense & Transition) are also made in the US. I like that customer service is based here and that I'm supporting our economy in a tiny way with what little dollars I have to spend. I drive German/Japanese cars and have 40 pairs of Nikes, so it's not like I'm running around screaming "they took er jawbs," but it's definitely my preference when it comes to the sports I'm into. It hasn't stopped me from owning plenty of Bataleon, K2, Ride, Burton, Flux, Union, Arbor, Nitro, DC, etc... gear but it's always a plus when you can keep it domestic.
