13/14 Smokin snowboards preview

Sometimes I live under a rock. I get caught up with certain companies and what they're doing and my blinders prevent me from checking out so many other companies and their incredibleness. Smokin is one of these companies. Headed by Jay Quinton and based out of Colorado, Smokin is owned and operated by snowboarders. All of their boards are hand made in Colorado by, ahem, snowboarders. There's only a handful of companies that still make their own boards in the USA so I'm thinking that we should be supporting these companies rather than some companies that have their boards made over seas. Smokin have some new boards in their line up this year as well as their tried and true favorites. Below are just a few of the models they're offering this season. To check out everything they have this year and to find out where and how to pick one up for yourself head on over to their site.

Mervin/Gnu/Lib Tech 13/14 gear

Mervin always has an awesome array of boards to suit whatever style of riding it is you do. My first board ever was a Gnu back in the 1993/1994 season, a purple Pharaoh. A lot has changed in snowboarding since way back then but a lot has stayed the same as well. Mervin is still hard at work pumping out Gnu an Lib Tech boards every season. I'm just showing a few here that caught my eye when checking out their new catalog. To check everything out and find out where to purchase yours head on over to their site.
