Seen at The Sports Authority in northern Virginia today: a "Dukes" brand snowboard for $99.99. It has a wood core, a 2 by 4 mounting array, and is made in Austria. It was one of those day after Thanksgiving specials; the special price ended at noon. I have enough boards, so I didn't get it. The normal price is only $149.99.
I also saw a snowboard made in China, but I forgot the brand name - Mercury or Liquid, maybe.
