Online Snowboard Shops

05 Jun, 2008

A couple years ago for I helped put together a comprehensive list of online snowboard shops that people could purchase gear from and hear other member’s feedback. I posted that list down below.

The three shops that I consistently purchase from are Evo, Dogfunk/Backcountry, and Wave Rave. Each of them I’ve encountered great service, good selection and good prices. Occasionally I’ll purchase from other snowboard shops including those in my hometown of Steamboat Springs like Powdertools and Powder Pursuits (best to visit in person, but not a big online store)

Depending what you are purchasing, the return policy is very important. If a shop gives you store credit, but does not offer a refund for something they don’t have in stock…that is a poor return policy. So be aware of other consumer reviews and choose your online shops wisely. Tightboards is in the middle of this problem and there are many complaints on the internet about them not fulfilling what’s in stock, not offering a refund and quite frankly…lacking customer service.

In this day and age, you can always find a shop willing to give you free shipping for purchases over a certain amount. Even subscribing to snowboard shop newsletters will get you discounts and deals not announced to the public. Tactics is really good at offering discounts to it’s newsletter readers. Sierrasnowboard offers daily giveaways and other special offers that are good to take advantage of.

It does come down to supporting your shops. I am a huge supporter of Evo in Seattle since I used to visit the shop, know some of the staff and like the selection. They are generally the first shop I check out when making purchases. If there’s a price difference from them to another shop that I’ve never ordered with or heard about…I’ll take Evo knowing that I’ll get the product with less hassles. Sometimes it’s not worth taking the risk over a couple bucks. Dogfunk has always been very good to me, good selection and quick delivery. Wave Rave I purchased my Burton luggage from when they offered a 50% off deal. They called me right away when they found out that the luggage was sold seconds before I bought it. Then when the order got cancelled by that person they called me again to see if I was still interested. That’s good customer service and they retained me as a customer.

Find a shop that treats you well as a customer. Sometimes the best deals are not worth the hidden agendas or problems you might discover.

“I also just had an awesome experience with Skyehigh. I dealt with them through their ebay store where I was able to get the 686 smarty complete pants and jacket for the lowest price on the internet… they actually had it in stock. Had to return it once because of size, no problem getting the second one, he even shipped it before he had the original back so that I could be all set up for opening day. Then the second one came missing the base layer so he immediately sent out one with a free skyehigh t-shirt.

“ was killer last year. They’re super shitty this year. I think their sales are growing, but they’ve done nothing to compensate for the extra business, so the quantity is up and the quality is way down. I ordered a DVD last week, but never got confirmation e-mail. I checked my credit card and apparently the order was never placed (even though I was taken to the “your order has been successfully submitted” page). Maybe their website is busted, too? I’ve tried phoning repeatedly (both their 888 number and their long distance/local number). I only get a busy signal. They don’t reply to their e-mails either. Absolute night and day compared to last season’s customer service. Arild has far worse horror stories to tell of them this season. Avoid at all costs. “ 66 12/21/2006

“Well my union forces arrived fast in 2 days, but my bindings were in the original package with no padding or second box around it etc. (they had few small scratches) which I was kind of disappointed and also the bindings were put right by my mailbox out in the open where anyone could have stole them, and that’s their fault not the shipping company’s (they have certain agreements of where to put/not put the items). I’m lucky that i saw them when I was driving in the morning. Recently I also bought a jacket from them. I waited 6 days and no emails or calls so after 50 calls I finally got to talk with them, they said that it was out of stock (yes after even 6 days they didn’t tell anything about it) and they offered me my money back or 25$ extra and buy something from their website so I didn’t decide right away. I decided to get my money back but first I checked my credit card to see if they have even taken out money. I checked and I saw that they took money for 2 jackets not one (300$ both together), I think that was because of an error in the website and they told me that I didn’t have some important field filled out in the check out even thought I ordered from the same account I ordered my bindings from. Right now I have been trying to call them for the past 2 days and I literally have called them at least 100 times (not exaggerating) and still no respond, it just beeps away when I call them (I guess its busy but I don’t think so after I called them like every single second). Even when they’re automatic message comes up it says to type 40 for customer service, i type it and it plays some dumb music and goes back to the automatic message, you can go do it over 10 times. OH, I also did send them email after 2 days of waiting for my jacket, still no response. I think its ridiculous of how bad their support is and how they can’t manage anything. This sucks a lot!” avigo 12/20/2006

“I just got a snowboard from, and they were awesome! I called last week and asked about ordering an ’06 model of the board. He said he wasn’t sure he had the size and said he’d go check and call me back. Not five minutes later, he called back. Unfortunately, they didn’t have the size I wanted, but he told me the sizes they DID have that could work for me, and said if I wanted to go with an ’07 model that they would include an extra year warranty for free (on top of the 3 year that comes with the board). On Monday, I ordered over the phone and got to speak to a real person right away. He physically went and checked their stock to see if he had the board I wanted (and they did). Said he’d send it out that afternoon and that I should have it by Wednesday. Sure enough, I got it yesterday, with all of the warranty documents I needed and not a scratch on the board. And not paying for shipping is very nice, since it’s quite a large box it comes in (nicely protected)! These guys are AWESOME and I would definitely deal with them again.” cmo84 11/30/2006

“yes this company does rule. I ordered an Endeavor Live Series off there. No shipping cost, on GST because it was out of Province… cheap! The board showed up in 4 days and in perfect condition. I’m going to order some bindings from them tomorrow. Nothing better for Canada.” ceeb 12/5/2006

    I buy stuff from Eternal semi-regularly, in fact I’m wearing a grenade hoodie I bought from them right now. Were it not for the brokerage fees when shipping to Canada, I would shop there way more.

    Boardzone isn’t too bad, although now it’s affiliated with West 49 so they mostly cater to the greatest common denominator making it harder to get high end gear.

    Good question Joe, I love this post and It’s been a while since I’ve updated it. Once shops have their inventory updated for 09-10, probably October/November I’ll look to update it.
