I MAGA and I own a shit load of guns. Never had any issues with one going off randomly and shooting someone in the face. But hey.... YMMV.If quality of final product is your only consideration then GP-87 makes better snowboards than anyone in North America.
If you're looking to MAGA then take one of precious guns and shoot yourself in the face, please.
Maybe, if you have the volume to support it it's practically stupid to not produce in China. If you believe in made in USA you are the biggest form of sucker in the world. Back to those war time brainwashing days. Also when buying something remember you're supporting jobs and people, crazy to me someone out their is crazy or racist enough to go I'm not helping Tim over there because he lives in Canada but I here there's some guy named Kyle in Kentucky so I should help him instead.there are other brands that still make boards in CO: Never Summer, Donek, Venture, to name three....
there are probably others. I didn't know Weston moved production to China, they must be getting bigger (?)
I guess it depends on what your narrative is. Coloradans massacred the natives that lived there on more than one occasion, not to mention the relocation and re-education programs. I won't judge you for that if you ride a board from Colorado.I'm not xenophobic, but if you pay attention at all to what the Chinese government does to minorities / religious groups (Tibet anyone?) and still want to support them or choose not to boycott Chinese products, to each their own.
I believe we are not massacring Natives in the present day. That narrative could likely be applied to most nations around the world from a historical perspective. Not to say, in the present, Natives are treated fairly here in the US.I guess it depends on what your narrative is.

This thread is old.
I'v heard and read that Never Summers suck hard and get easily broken. Would never buy a NS myself.Never Summers are made in Colorado, hands down some of the best boards i've ever ridden. Have a Venture splitboard and i'm quite impressed with that as well. Though the Venture doesn't quite have the damp ride quality as the NS, though it is a splitboard. Still have not ridden a Venture solid. These aforementioned claims that US boards don't have the quality of Chinese manufacturing arejust opinions.
