Default Omatic snowboards done?

I heard rumors that Omatic snowboards folded. Louie Vito was riding a blank deck with no Omatic stickers recently and Hampus Mosesson is on Apo. Can anyone confirm or deny this? Were they at SIA?

Man it sucks that legit companies like Omatic die when shit companies like Bitchboards are thriving

Damn... I feel kinda sad for them. They seem(ed) like great people behind a sick brand and now what they worked really hard for is gone.
I wonder why it happened, they seemed to be pretty successful, they had a sick team, they had innovative technology (BS tech), they had a great board designer and best of all they had Todd Richards. Why would they suddenly fold?

At least I get to feel cool for owning one of the last Omatics ever made

That's strange Eric Willet was riding an Omatic at all his contests this year...but really now that I think of it, I have never seen an Omatic on the hill.

And if you watch Eric at the Dew Tour in Utah he was riding current year boards not 2012. I've been told 9 different stories on what has happened and after weeding through the bullshit I kind of have an idea of what happened.

I know what happened but there's some legal shit going on I'm no about to fuck it up for people involved.
