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…

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.

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

Anyone know anything about a brand called ” life” ?
I bought a used demo board from a ski resort about 23 years ago and it was brand new the year before i bought it when they let me borrow it after my board broke on the first run of the day. So this was back in the late 90s. Im guessing it was either a brand that came and went so fast nobody remembers it or its a model or style under another brand name not on the board.
It is all light blue with a pinkish phoenix rising with a heart on its chest and says ” life” in italic font. The bottom of the board is all white and says LIFE in Navy blue italic letters. If this sounds familiar id love to know more about this company and its boards. Thanks.
