Nothing really wrong with the boards in general. It just that they're all OEM and you can get better for the money. For the most part all the companies out of OEM factories are just doing to cash in on snowboarding instead of trying to make a great product that you'll actually like. Just making snowboards to make snowboards.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Not too sure on that one. I see on the Nope. facebook page that they are saying that they have sold a board to someone in aussie though.

It's not Monson that's the problem it's the brands and their lack of understanding product development. Illicit Snowboarding did a great article 10 companies 1 board or something like that. When all you do is go to the factories catalog pick out some specs slap your graphic on it and call it good enough it's not really anything special.

i must admit if i were uber rich i would love to start a snowboard company but i would defiantly want to do it differently from many boards out there. While i understand why people love the "made in the USA" etc and i understand some people love brands like burton because they have the "name". I would like to think that i would be able to offer something different.

Don't ask me what that may be but i reckon that you could do ok with another brand that is no frills no gimmicks just all about functionality. A company like what i have read about nope. seems to have a good idea with shitty customer relations, and a poor process swell as claiming to be unique when in fact they are similar to 11 other board brands out there.

You could put the fun back into snowboarding. And seeing as you ride, you could say "made by snowboarders, for snowboarders"...


Thats about as helpful as i get...

haha well i was thinking of saying made in Australia by a basketball guy who loves snowboarding now that he isn't worried about getting hurt. And then i could make it have 7 different camber zones with some type of extruded contact points and claim that it makes the everyday snowboarder 10x better than if they didn't ride my boards!

No need to be uber rich. Snowboards are one of the few things where you can start a product small and slowly expand every year with out much risk. You just need good boards. look at what Neversummer, Signal, and Smokin' have done. Watch the Signal Every Third Thursday shows and you will see that making a board isn't that crazy.

Do you know how much a new mold costs? How about factory costs? Minimums? Etc. etc. it's not as cheap as people think. Now a T shirt company that's cheap.
