Interesting. I feel the need to buy every snowboard they offer. The swallow tail looks kool, the second swallow tail looks fun, the big mtn board looks nice, and the twin looks nice. damn.

I like the quadraxial FG and some CF layers in there. Not many board companies do that (most use bi or tri axial FG, and only carbon strands :thumbsdown:).

I also like the longer sidecut radius of the Chugach, unfortunately I think a big mountain board should have some taper, and I think long noses are useless unless you're riding 2+ feet of powder on a regular basis. Even then by big square blunt nose will probably have more float than a thinner waterski style nose!

Cant tell if serious.

Your website, your shop, your price. whether people buy it its their thing. Go buy a burton custom from 2012 and try to sell it for 600 dollars, then see if peeps still buy it.

MSRP means manufacturers SUGGESTED retail price. A retailer can generally charge as much as they want, but who would buy from them?

Allboardsports in CO wants $1800 for a Virus I can get directly from the builder for about $1500 (less if I bargain with him!).

The exception to this rule is that some manufacturers won't let retailers put gear on sale for more than a certain percent. That's why in Canada all Burton gear is 20% off now, and will go cheaper shortly.

The other thing is, you're already closer to a lot better board builders than we have in North America. By the time you pay shipping and duty, you'd probably be able to buy a German or Swiss board for nearly the same price.

You can get this board for 750 - 800 euro depending on size (including VAT). If you e-mail the company I guarantee someone will answer you (and chances are it'll be the owner/builder himself).

Actually the big names I was thinking were: but these will be more expensive. The Virus Avalanche and Swoard Dual are probably the cheapest.

Kessler (The Ride) Kessler Ski & Snowboards <--- they have dealers in Italy, check the dealers page

Virus (Avalanche Series) virus

Oxess (Freeride) Freeride

Swoard (Dual) Swoard.com - SWOARD snowboards

Edit: Another two I'd look at would be Nidecker and Volkl. Volkl has some interesting boards at a good price point. Assuming you're looking for a freeride/big mountain board.
