Online Snowboard Retailers?
 
Think this is the right section to ask..

What's your favorite online retailer for snowboard gooooods. I picked up some extra cash from Santa and was searching around for a decent shop.

I saw:

Evo
The House
of course Amazon
Snowboards dot com

Where do you guys get your gear?

I've used Dogfunk, Evo, Snowboards.com, SnoCon, and Altrec. Every one of them has been good to me. I also suggest Backcountry.com. Ideally though, shop local if you can. :)

What everyone else said, Dogfunk, Evo, etc., but if I were you I would try to avoid Backcountry.com.

Depends on what you are looking for really.

But I like looking at EternalSnow.com, Tactics.com, mtbakersnowboardshop.com
-- there's a theme here with all these that they rep Mervin, and they are actual shops. :D

Dogfunk/Backcountry (same company I believe) have super fast shipping and a lifetime no questions asked return policy. I've seen some of the stuff they resell on Geartrade and am like "man I can't believe they let the customer return that."

I bought my husband's pants at The House because they had some cheap goretex ones from a couple of seasons ago. I didn't have any problems with them but I've noticed that they don't list what season stuff is from and you have to guess based on the price and design.

Evo is one of my local stores and the guys who work there are really helpful. They will beat a licensed competitor's lowest price by 5%. My husband and I got our boots here and they put a lot of effort into making sure we had the right fit. If they hadn't been sold out of the board I wanted I would have bought it here because they're good people.

I also keep an eye on the Altrec sales but their prices are similar to Backcountry/Dogfunk and they charge sales tax to WA which generally puts them over.

I wouldn't bother with Amazon. I noticed a lot of the stuff there is sold by existing online stores (eg. Backcountry) and the total price is more expensive than they sell them for at their regular website where you can often get free shipping, possible Fatwallet cashback and random coupons.

You know that makes zero sense right? :dizzy:

You can also add Utah Skis and Milo Sport

Ehhh I was going along with everyone else. I didn't know Backcountry was the same as Dogfunk, It's just I have ordered 2 things from there and they messed up on both :dunno:

Out of those choices Evo. Also Dogfunk it's hard to beat that return policy (although REI does the same thing for members, so you could consider that, too). Snowboards.net/.com is a local company for me and I've worked with them a little bit the past few seasons, but as far as online is concerned I'm not thrilled with their site's functionality compared to the others, and their selection sometimes leaves a lot to be desired, not to mention they (for some reason) continue to stock bullshit stuff like Firefly snowboards and plastic snowboards that should only be found at department stores.
