Smokin Snowboards 2013/14 lineup

I stopped by the factory in Sparks NV this past week just for the hell of it. I had talked to Jay and Wara about buying the last pow board(the pinner) that they have, they held it for me and were going to ship it but I figured why not stop in to grab it on the way to lake tahoe? This is now a discontinued deck so I really wanted to get their last one in my size, as usual they were their and super friendly/happy to show us what they had going on in the factory.

We ended up getting a new street slayer longboard from them and they also hooked us up with a ton of stickers, some hoodies, Tshirts and hospitality. We got to check out the new line for next season and they look sick. My personal favorite design is the awesymetrical which is new this coming season. This will probably be my new primary deck. Its a symetrical twin with clash rocker (rocker middle, camber tips) that has an exagerated side cut on the heel edge. Im going to pick one up on the way home on monday hopefully. They were still in full production mode for the S Hemisphere and didnt have all of them made yet... I will be able to ride a few new boards on my hood next month though and hopefully my awesym at Abasin next week.

The entire lineup looks amazing, really poppy graphics on solid boards with some nice new tech mixed in with them. Jay was telling me that the awsym was going to be a platinum pick/goodwood, not that that means much.

Anyway, I really am always amazed at how willing Jay and Wara(the company owners) are at stopping what they are doing and bullshitting for a few minutes when people walk in to their shop. They actually took the time to personally silk screen the hoodies and tshirts on the spot for my wife since they didnt have any in her size.

Their customer service is and always has been amazing. The first time I every met Jay was 7 or 8 years ago looking for a very specific board/graphic, he took the time over a couple of days to put the word out to some regional reps and found me one. That is what got me hooked on their products.

For people looking for high quality and virtually indestructible boards with great customer service, made in the US(Tahoe area just outside Reno).... Smokin Snowboards is definitely a winner

Just curious, did they say it was okay for you to mention/describe some of their boards for next year?
Doesn't bother me at all, but don't snowboard companies like to keep their products under wraps until they reveal them?

Might have been the case 5 plus years ago, the Internet has ruined that. Far better to embrace it and let it ride these days.

I would have assumed companies would want people talking about their upcoming products and designs, if for nothing else than to get some hype going. Seems to me people will like what they like regardless of when the information comes out.

my names's Petey and i have gigantic balls

Don't know anything about their boards but their 3 year Bummer Deal or whatever is pretty cool.

Yeah, he was so worried about it he gave me a stack of catalogues for next year to give to some people around vail that were asking for them. They really have very little stock from last year left. Maybe 40 boards. Someone just purchased most of their 11/12 and 12/13 stock that was remaining.

I can't wait to grab my new boards next month when we roll back through Reno. I grabbed the pinner from their stock so no one else got it, it was the last one they are making and the last one in it's size.... He has a prototype powder stick that he is likely gonna make into a split for next year as well but only time will tell on that.

To the poster that got a vixen for their chick. My wife has one and a PYT. She loves them both and will be getting next years models too. They ride way bigger that they are.....

Did you ride the awesym yet? What's it like?

Funny, I saw it won an under $450 Good Wood for 2014 in the print version with an absurdly low price, but it has since been corrected on the site...

New price is more like what I'd expect...
