Triple8Sol Damn you OP for trying to put a scare in us. Looking forward to hopefully getting a Smokin deck next season...been putting it off for way too many seasons...

scotty100 I really want to try the new awsymmetrical board. The Buck Ferton thing is getting a little old by now though...especially as they grow into a bigger company themselves...

scottb7 Anyone that has the sense of humor to sell a "buck ferton" is ok in my book. Just wish I could afford to ride it.

Buck Ferton

Nolefan2011 Must be a bad rumor going around. I've wanted to try a Smokin Team for a while. Was just curious.

They do seem to be a bit of a love/hate brand. I was up in tahoe last week looking to demo their new awsym board - couple of stores who carry them up there love them, and a couple of others who don't carry them made it clear to me they pretty much hate them! Seems smokin jay is a bit of a "character"...
Isn't Mervin from Canada which makes them not domestic to the US?

Kevin137 Korea has a big snowboard scene, not sure how that happened, but they are a crazy bunch for sure when it comes to snowboarding...

I expect we will see more of them in competitions in the coming years as well...

Argo Considering they sold out of all their boards except 2 styles this year I highly doubt it. They have VERY little overhead and a lot of business. I watched them ship a prepaid order for around 500 boards this summer to Korea that was prepaid.... I didn't even know they snowboarded that much in.Korea.

I'm guessing he is a regional rider and whoever the regional Rep is sponsoring him may be the.one with the issue. Brands don't pay regionals, some(very few) regional riders get paid by regional reps.

They did recently fire a production manager for fucking up to many times.... One of the owners took over that for now though....
