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…

      Yup they were. But I’m guessing a sponsorless Sage Kotsenburg means they’re gone too.

    Loving this list.

    Also:
    Prophecy Slides, Beyond, Legend, Never (pre-Option), Osiris, Subtle, Box (Reebok snow boots) and Jackson are a few more

    Some are just “zombie” brands that still exist, but some of those ads bring it back to the golden age of shredding. Pre-brain bucket steez. Fish paw,Swag, Osiris, Joyride. Loved that shit.

    And Brooke forgot the biggest one of course…. NIKE!

    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….

    Mid-E says:

    Yeah yeah. They come and go.

    Just glad Holden is still around, capita has been solid….oh and Alex Andrews still looks like Stewie Griffen

    Eesa. I still have a few shirts and socks laying around. ‘lux layering’ was cool, but I guess not cool enough!

    Cat says:

    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.

    “Famly Snowboards” out of Laguna Beach.
    Some of the lightest and snappyest boards way ahead of their time.

    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
