Who are some of the lesser known snowboard companies making quality boards?

I hear NS, Lib and a few others mentioned frequently on the forum. Just wondering which other smaller underground companies are making quality boards. I had a quick search via web and hundreds turn up, especially in Canada

If your in Canada, you can look at trappers snowboards out of revy. My buddy got to ride one of their splits and liked it. I have seen them in a shop or 2 in the bc alberta area.

Niche graphics blow. But I do like the brand's eco friendly direction.

My Neversummer boards are holding up to some serious use. My Proto has close to 30 days on it, with more than half of it jibbing and the top sheet looks almost new. No edge seperation, no delam, no core shots. Def living up to it's rep.

You may want to look at Status snowboards for a similar shape and build.

Marhar out of Michigan. Been pleasantly surprised with the quality of their decks and the direction they're going in with the brand. The 2014 stuff I'm riding right now is money the new Throwback rivals the Arbor Blacklist and the Archaic surpasses the NS Proto.
