Thryll, Clymb, etc. etc. It's an aggregation or members only site that gives you discounts while they cut the middle man and run to the companies directly to get a price break. Does nothing at all to realistically help the broken retail segment of the snowboard industry.

If this thread hadn't posted back to the top I wouldn't have posted this response because it's not memorable like these sites.

Shouldn't you be trolling EL before it goes under because the funding dies when the store that started it goes under? Maybe then you'll care about the broken retail segment.

The main issue is that my work blocks your site. I'm not interested in surfing a site on my phone if I can avoid it.

Curious to hear what you think is broken about the retail segment of the snowboard industry.

Those sites are members only, direct from manufacturer sites. We are not doing that. We are complimentary to current snowboard retailers. Not sure if we're helping to fix it or not, guess it depends on how you define broken.

Thanks everyone who has signed up already, the response has been overwhelming. The beta program will be starting in a couple of weeks so there is still time to join if you're interested.

Happy New Year everyone!

There are definitely some great sites if you're actively looking. We will be surfacing products you might not have been looking for or didn't know were on sale.

What I liked about this site, that I have yet to see anywhere else, is the ability to pick the sizes you are interested in. Mostly everything on sale clothing wise is Small or XXL so I don't want to be bothered to look a shit unless it fits!
