I searched on internet and I found 4 brands I never heard of before.
They are all made in Italy and I would like to know if anyone of you has ever heard about or ride one.

The list is:
...while searching I also stumble upon Ettore Barabino, a guy that first imported snowboard in Italy when snowboarding was still called "Snow Surf". The boards he made out of his hands were a bit unique indeed:

Funky have been around for 30+ years, if it's the same company?
They may have been bought by someone else over that time, but the brand name funky is OG.
I had one and it was way WAY ahead of its time.
Haven't heard of the other ones, but that doesn't mean they aren't legit.

I think they were resurrected a bit like Kemper, but they build their own boards. I have the Abracadabra and it's a phenomenal board. Pops, rips a turn, floats really well. Not the best on ice but overall one of the boards I've liked the most in the last 10 years and I've been through a bunch.
