Domestic Decks: 2010 USA-made Snowboards : Shred White and Blue

this site posts boards every week or so that are made in the USA. By made in the USA, I assume you mean the companies that make their boards exclusively in the US, no overseas production too. For example:

Here are a few brands that spring to mind:

Gnu
Lib Tech
Roxy
Signal
Rome
Never Summer
Smokin'

If Arbor is non-china the Coda would be a good option for you.

Arbors are made in Austria.

Paranormal 11-20-2010 09:56 PM

btw guys im not saying that other companies are crap or less quality. I just think that during these times when america has very few things it produces its a good idea to buy american if given the chance. ;)
