A Long List of Dead Snowboard Brands

Though the snowboard internet has been pretty dead over the past few weeks, what with the holidays and all, but he History of Snowboarding group on Facebook has been a-buzz thanks to a post on dead brands. Since we’ve talked about this about 1000 times and never done it, we’re reblogging it, and we’re stoked that the Internet has done the majority of our research for us! (If everyone can crowd source money, we can crowd source content, right?) I did my best to sort though the 500+ comments and make an extensive list with no doubles, add a few more, as well as take off the ones that are still around. Of course, I probably missed some…

    liquid snowboards!

  • chicken hawk

    How about Division 23? I got excited trying to find a brand that wasn’t on the list. Also, how about Whitehouse?

    I think some of these brands may still exist in big box sports stores, like M3, Silence, Avalanche, etc.

    Sadly there’s some good names in here that if they weren’t used already would be rad, Joyride?

    There’s also some renames, like Apocalypse is now APO.

    And strange small markets? I think Allian still exists in Japan.

    In regards to Elan, Capita bought their factory, so who knows if the Elan name has a marketing arm left.

    Why can I go on and on about this? I’m not quite sure. la de da de da….

    I can add some info : I used to make Swill/Sasquatch boards.
    “Sasquatch” boards were made by Globe Mfg.(not THAT Globe). We made Swill Snowboards first then produced the Sasquatch line after.
    We died in 96/97.

  • Dopeninja

  • eric

    Help trying to find my snowboard brand.
    I have aboard that I just love and no rental I have tried feels as natural for me.
    It has a naked lady with a yellow python on it and the logo is a split T with a snake around it.
    Not sure how to post a picture of it but any ideas. I’d like to find the spec for this board so I can get something similar.
    Cheers
    Eric
