andrewdod yup, same doug. he also is making instructional videos on the thrive website now.

trapper Is that the same Doug that does their instructional videos? They're pretty decent vids, he seems to explain stuff well.

andrewdod i was under the impression doug was a co-owner, and the other guy i believe is named mike?

Alkasquawlik Doug is a decent guy, but is not the owner. I have friends that work in the same department as him, and they have nothing but nice things to say.

andrewdod new company that started up about 2 years ago when sierrasnowboard.com (now trusnow) went down the tubes. As said above they are made in the same plant as nitro, and a few other companies. Ive never ridden one, but ive considered it, unfortunately never had the opportunity. As far as the owner being an arrogant asshole I don't know which one he is talking about... I've spoken to Doug in the past and he seems like a decent guy.

Bottom line is they are a new company out of Truckee California, and don't have the money or man power of the burtons, and mervins of the world. Therefore they don't have as many options as bigger companies...

Alkasquawlik Same dudes who ran Skierra. Owner is pompous, arrogant dick. Not a fan.

BurtonAvenger I rode the Renegade last year for a few days. They're made in the same factory as Nitro and borrow a lot of the same tech. Not a bad board but didn't stand out as being something AMAZING, just sort of there doing its thing.

Any opinions on Thrive Snowboards?

Doesn't seem to be many reviews around...

Good/bad?

Specifically the Renegade.
