I'd rather buy from someone who has the love for snowboarding... just like I don't buy from non-skater owned shops for decks....

It hasn't been done to death haha.. it's supporting the ones who do it for the right reasons.

I like poo poker, or chowder spoon. I agree with ba, build a cheap all mountain board that can rip the shit out of anything. Avoid park boards the market is flooded with those. I disagree with him about the built by riders aspect, I think its great, look at mervin, neversummer, signal, venture. All well respected compaines that employ riders in us factories.

Hope you have talked with the guys behind happymonkey and northfork snowboards, both are right in your area and gave making custom boards a shot and gave it up due to the low demand, and the time and cost to do custom or hi end construction at home.

The marketing angle has been done to death though. The only way to know if they're truly living by that ideal (and what the hell does the ideal even actually mean) is to have a personal relationship with them. They don't even need to market it if you're coming from that personal of a view. Pretty much every other company makes some mention about how they're "for riders" or "run by riders", so that's why saying or claiming they're "by riders for riders" doesn't carry much weight.

I see what you're saying... Ok.

Yeah I agree with you, definitely overdone.
I meant I still cling to the whole we snowboard, it's not about the money (which every business kind of is. >_>) but that they do it for the riders not so they can plaster their logos everywhere - make billions and then go live in Miami.

I still think the love over money tattoo designs for that new company was pretty clever.

If it's a real goose, is it propaganda?

I say skip bringing boards into shops, and bring them straight to the hill. Connect with the riders, while being able to offer quality boards at a good price. I bought a board online from signal their first year of production, kind of a risk from a company with out a reputation but the good price made it worth the risk. They only offered one model that first year, then later expanded the brand.
