Help, Help, Help, we need a name...
 
...so for those of you that dont know us, we're making boards up in Fall City, Wa. and we are ready to go to small scale production with the release of about 16 or so boards this year to give away to local pros and shops to test. We have a couple models we are happy with that we tested last year (by the way, it was a great year in Wa., Crystal just shut down last Saturday) and we are now looking for a good name to go forward with these boards. So I put it out to the riders...you give us a good name that we like and we will give you a free custom board! No strings attached. The names of the company that we are looking so far are "Fall Line Boards" and "Basement Snowboards". You have somethin better? Remember the whole idea here is that these are boards made locally by riders for riders. I myself, have over 25 years of riding experience and my buddy who is making them with me has 15 years (40 years combined). Help me out and if we like it, we'll send you a custom board free of charge! put your thinking caps on folks cause mine is spent.

Cheers. - Big D.:cheeky4:

Just call it snowboards.

Also for the love of god do not use the by riders for riders marketing campaign it has been done to death and people are fucking over it.

On that note, you should have an absolutely not angry snowboard name.

Perhaps, "Rather Pleasant Snowboards" - Made by some alright guys.

Or there's the dark side of the force. Frostborn snowboards - because we're cold and angsty.

EDIT: Oh, hey, there's the greek mythology route, Khione is the goddess of snow, and it makes for a pretty recognizable name with some advertising and graphics themes built in already.

Thats all i got, tried to keep it simple, ohh and ill have a true twin, traditional cambered 164, blunted tips, 268mm waist width, with some Never Summer Heritage style sidecut tech. cheers good luck with the company, ohh and i agree with BA too many boards out there that cost a shit load, come to Australia and they charge you damn near $1000 - $1200 for a Lib Tech or GNU, make some boards that are as good without trying to be selfish pricks (not that you are im sure)
