I jus wanted to put this out here for people looking to get a new board.

I have been riding smokin boards for 4 years now. They are fucking bullet proof. Even if you do fuck it up they have a 3 year standard factory warranty for defects and shit like that PLUS an OOOPs I fucked up warranty if you break it being stupid, you get a new board at wholesale. I am a big dude and have a butt load of hard riding 40,000 vertical days on my newest board, I broke my leg and the boar wasn't even dinged....

I thought about this thread because I emailed Jay toda and like clockwork he replied in like 5 minutes with an answer better than what I wanted. This guys the founder/owner of the company and still takes the time..... Anyhow, I'm grabbing a few boards for nex year, Buck Ferton for my sons all mtn board, Hooligan for his park board, KT22 for me, Vixen for the wife.... I'll probably grab a box of hoodies too.....

I love a company that stands behind their shit.... Hope I ge to use my OOoPs warranty some day....

I have absolutely beat the piss out of my superpark and it keeps on going. Hopefully it finally explodes before 3 years so I don't have to pay full price for a new one :D

my friends superpark flew off the roof of his car on the highway the other day (he didn't lock his rack). From my view in the car behind it looked like that puppy was toast after bouncing and slamming off the tarmac off to the side, and it barely looked like anything happened when we retrieved it from the side of the road. pretty high durability i guess... ;). I'm just glad the thing didn't hit anyone behind us. Good thing no one else was on the road!

Heard about this company last year when I got into snowboarding and was happy about everything I've read about them. Picked up a board (Team Series 152) this year by Smokin and I'm probably gonna be riding their boards from now on only, incredible warranty program, excellent customer service, made at home and of course most importantly the boards are solid. Will probably pick something up by them on the All-MTN freeride side next year.

Also I can't get over how strong/durable their bases are :thumbsup:

I'm interested in trying one of their boards. Flex ratings are crap, and all of theirs are almost all 5-6.

I'm looking something in between say, an Evo and a SL. I have a Coda now, and kind of like that flex, which I feel is in between those two NS boards.

What's a comparable board?

Thanks
superpark
Buck ferton

From softer the stiffer in that order. Superpark would be the true mid flex. Mip would be even softer hooligan is about like the buck furton

Fantastic company to deal with. Rode a MIP this season and have a Mail Order Bride hopefully coming today that I can squeeze in a couple days on.They will really work with you to find what's best and the best way of hooking you up with it. And talking to Jay you can tell the level of commitment and that he absolutely loves what he is doing.

He came home from snowboarding all day and got the first board in today. He was pretty excited about it. Im guessing the excitement will happen all over again today when the hooligan arrives. What a life to live at 12.....



He waited for me to wake up this morning to see if he could ride it today since I get off work late and he was asleep already. He is excited to toss up some methods and nose grab 360s today showing off his Buck.... For anyone dealing with snowboard companies, Jay Quinten is a super guy and I still cant believe that as a snowboard company owner he takes the effort to communicate the way he does with his customers.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

I want a KT-22 154 2012 so bad.

I've been trying to find one at a good price but it's impossible. Anyone know where I can get one?

I bought a superpark off dogfunk, got it for $250, can't wait to try it out, should be here today, might have to hit up boreal later this week just to try it out. I've been loving the westmark so well see how it compares.

I just got my 159 MOB Thursday. Got a chance to get the last two days of the year here on it. Great board, so much so that I am going to sell off my Heritage.
