Yeah right? He explained to me though that they just aren't for everyone, he said they're for people that have already burned through all the built in china over-hyped crap and really want the best you can get. Kinda made sense, but it IS a lot of money. And I think they are so awesome looking!

I'm going to write to Brett, and ask him if he'll address that, maybe a little on this forum...hand inlayed rare wood veneered full carbon fiber boards with cores and camber made to your spec. How is that overpriced I guess is my question to you? See anyone else doing that? Have any idea how long it takes? I'm buying one btw...

if you want it for bragging, then by all means. but its still just a snowboard. custom awesome looking veneers may look nice but that doesnt mean anything to the integrity of the board. Im sure theyre nice, but not 1100 dollars nice. they gotta make money somehow though. custom snowboards probably doesnt have many sales to cover cost of overhead.

have at it.

just because you blend filet mignon with some sashimi and icecream together doesn't mean it'll taste good.

give it 10 days of riding and itll look like everything else anyways.

yeah inlayed rare wood whatever, its overpriced because i am sure that you can find a board that RIDES as good for <$500(?probably), which is all that most snowboarders are going to be concerned about

I just sent him an email, I hope he posts up something here...but as he explained to me, these are really the best of the best material and construction wise, they don't cut any corners trying to beat the price on chinese crud and put the money in the board instead of hype. He's done extensive testing and actually offers a lifetime warranty on them, plus he says if you get ridden up on in line you can just buff it out. I'm not trying to justify my purchase, there's just something to be said for this kind of thinking. I've probably ridden about everything that the big companies have to offer already, so hey.
