Ok so I know the CO DWD rep and here is the scoop. They use to make the boards at "The Lodge" Signal's factory in Cali. Just this model year they switched to the Elan factory in Austria. You got a newer Elan factory made one. I have one of the last USA made DWD Genovese #13 in a 09/10 151. The Kwon I ended up with is made in the USA also and #1 of this year/model/size. From your pics you can definitely see differences!! Here are some of pics of my DWD boards for reference.
Wow they were still making them in the US in September- so this one is fresh! The main thing I noticed was you have 2x12 insert packs and I have 2x10. I can't tell from the pics- are your tips blunt?

I'm droolin' over the sidecut on this thing- looks super tight. Can't wait to jump on it the day after Tanxgiven.

So did you get your Kwon last season? How does ride? It looks like a beast.

Made in Austria not the US. Doesn't feel at like a 7 flex- it's a bit softer. Poppin around the rug it feels like the Indoor but lighter and it has blunt tips. Spins really easy- nice even flex from nose to tail

lisevolution The hype is mostly due to them being rider owned and a local/core brand. They've been around
A couple of years now. I haven't heard anything negative about them only good reviews. We'll
See how they hold up as the hype builds. I equate them with a brand like stepchild...

A Burton Custom 166 has a 253 waist and the 155 Kwon has a 259. That blows my mind although the Skate Banana 156W has 265 waist which also seems enormous. The Genovese 157 has a 250 waist which seems spot on for my 9.5 boots. Plus it comes with "mind control"- can't beat that.

Hmm... See: Buy Dinosaurs Will Die Genovese Snowboard - Shop for Snowboard Gear at Snowboarder Magazine | Snowboarder Magazine **Edit...After looking at google images of the shining girls and Dorothy the outfit is striking similar so I dunno, hehe.
