Seems like snowboard companies are going lean this year
Through talking to a few guys I know at my local shops, it seems like a lot of companies this year have leaned out their production this year and are only making the bare minimum to fill orders. I know NS has completely sold out of most of their stock, and that if your local shop hasn't ordered any Salomon Sick Sticks or Ride El Hefe bindings, you're pretty much out of luck. I know NS usually goes pretty lean on their production so the fact that they are sold out isn't surprising, but companies like Salomon and Ride selling out of some of their flagship items are. Has anyone else seen this anywhere?
Honestly, it's about time snowboard companies get a bit more lean in their production seeing how much stock is always left over in the spring. My guess is those late season bargain hunters will be out of luck come spring sales.
