    Everything sucks, lets start our own company   

    Just kidding. There are alot of awesome snowboarding companies out there, but I just wanted to share this in case anyone cares.

    A little more than a year ago, me and a good friend of mine were on a snowboarding trip, we went to this demo weekend which we go to every year to test out the new shit. We started half-joking about how starting our own company would be fun, and about a week later, we were all in it.

    So we tested some boards over the winter and came up with a construction and shape we liked while making the graphics happen, and here we are. We kinda wanted to focus on more skatestyle graphics that are fun.

    The website is coming along and we're using this facebook page in the meantime:

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Wylin-Snowboards/151888121532553

    I guess why I posted this was to see if anyone has some tips or pointers, and just to see your opinions in general.

    And oh, if any of the admins feel this is smooch-marketing, then please go ahead and delete the thread. I just figured it wouldnt really matter since we dont sell them in the states anyway and we're supah small.

    yup!

    They are pressed in China but all the materials come from Austria. We tested a bunch of different factories and the one we ended up using really measured up to our standard. The boards are legit.

    Thanks man.

    We've been in touch with a couple of shops, but since we've only been runnin this for less than a year, we missed the deadline for the shops purchases so that will have to wait a year.

    And I wanna do a powboard for sure! The demand for powboards arent huge in Sweden though, so that would have to wait for a little bit so that we have time to expand first. We really want to keep it small though so I guess we'll see how that goes, haha. We might just do a few powboards for fun...

    Thank you!

    That just came about because we only have one model this year, so the model names are just what we call them to seperate the graphics without calling them 1,2 and 3.

    I appreciate the advice though and I'll take that into consideration for next year when we have actually have more models.

    coldis, if you guys have a mid stiff board in the 56-58 range and i can get it in the US, i would rock it.

    i like the space graphic. personally i would do without the ship on the topsheet, but that doesn't matter.

    I'm pretty sure that sidewall farg tech will help me finally spin more than 360, but question is will it help me land?

    Thanks for the support!

    We're going to focus on Sweden at first, but you never know what the future will bring.

    And Shralp: Sidewall farg tech will make you land those 5's and 7's, make the coffee taste better, make the women in the streets look better and make mother nature bring us more powdays. I wouldn't be surprised if we got the nobel prize for it actually.

    Can you PM and tell me for the life of me how you managed to find a manufacturer in China, and how you got started?

    I want to start any company but would like some inspiration.
