Some stores just seem to have boards as an afterthought & the sales guys don't really know alot about the product. I'm noticing a lot of the stores seem to have ordered much less product this year and even the lines of snowboards are kind of thin. Like big on burtons mid to lower end, then some elans. But Sanction has the most diverse product in the area. But the highest end stuff that i've seen has been at the sporting life downtown.


So actually i'm not one of those 'core' guys, to each his own.

Actually I used to have the old K2 brian savard w/ the wolf and the moon graphic. Nice board till i popped it.
good, good. I personally think all this "core" talk is a load of crap. Probably close to half of the kids these days wouldn't touch a "ski company board" because its not "core", regardless of how much tech, quality, care, etc is put into it, which is completely stupid

I like the guys in sanction, I used to visit about once a week before I went away to western. They treat you right there and are nice if you spend some money and are nice to them. I also only shop for snow stuff at sanction or kenmark because they are true winter sports shops, unlike skiis and biikes or sportcheck.
All of my skate money goes towards sanction, because like I said they are the only real shop relatively close to me.

That is the biggest load of shit I have ever heard. Other than the fact that one of my buddy's sweater binders is starting to get a little worked in,' K2 makes great boards. Also, I absolutely love salomon boots and their board line this year is impressive. If I could pick an all around sponsor it would definitely be salomon due to their wide line of quality products.

i haven't been to sanction since they were boardzone... man i hated going to boardzone, the employees were stuck up and rude.

the sign of the skier is my favourite shop... though kenmark is up there too, along with skiis and biikes.

Hey guys, just ordered a board from Sierra, their shipping is unbelievable, I ordered it yesterday at 4 pm, and I got it at my door today at 330, in London Ontario. I did have to pay 50 bucks ontop of the 35 dollar shipping for duties and extra charges crap... but still worth it.

Hey guys/girls, I don't know if anyone has posted this yet but Sporting Life has some sweet deals going on right now.

I bought some stuff because it was half price and they had the cheapest prices, and the prices were in CDN dollars!

I got great deals on some outwear and necessities like snowboard socks and gloves!

Sporting Life Online Store | CLEARANCE | EQUIPMENT

Free shipping on orders over $100 too.
