Santa Cruz Snowboards 2008-2009

09 Feb, 2008

Marking their 20th year making snowboards, Santa Cruz came out strong for SIA. It was great to see them bring out old Santa Cruz boards in the SIA booth, showcasing where they came from. It brought back some great memories to see boards I grew up checking out wishing I could have.

I missed the chance to be at the booth when Chris Roach came by to meet and greet…but from what others said, that experience is something they won’t forget.

*They brought back Roach’s exact decal job from ’91 (seriously cool to see, the original board is there and the new board with the exact decal job and even made the stomp pad decal).

    I am loving your page lots of great articles. I got the xx allstar snowboard through a swift warranty replacement after my 07 board got damaged. (I was very pleased with the customer service and the recognition of a board fault).
    However due to trouble getting employment i havent been able to ride it ( I live in england so a snwboard trip is even more expensive) Have you ridden one or know anywhere else I can find a review, I’m struggling to find one. Are you going to review any santa cruz snowboards this year?
