I see more garbage promo boards at unrealistic ask prices than normal boards.

 

Except fukkn Orcas.   

these dummies always seem to want full retail and they love to jack it up even more cause its some "sick limited edition brewery collab" bullshit. Every year after the burton us open in Vail a handful of those Pacifico Customs pop up on craigslist for $600

T.Rice should to do a sikk red bull orca

Elevated Surfcraft just put some leftover 2019 boards on sale for right around 1/2 off! Not seeing any difference in graphics or specs. All 3 are reverse taper though...

Elevated Surfcraft ~50% off

I have the blue 155 snoopy, got mine off ebay for $300 new a few weeks back.  They're the Horizon model.  US x Peanuts x Nordstrom.. US probably made a quick buck.  Didn't really care for the board though, kinda meh after riding it but i'm a peanuts dork

Messaged the head of US about it. He said he wouldn't have done it and has passed on other promo board opportunities, but Charles Schultz is his favorite artist so why not.

They're really pretty cool. Most licensed things I don't care for one bit. But these are fun.

I like them. Besides I'm generally stoked on United Shapes because I like the Cadet a lot. If they made one in a 160-ish, I might have bought one haha.

@spacebird haven't been on any other US decks and to be fair I only rode it one day at brighton.  Carves great, has a little taper, decent camber, just felt kinda dead between the feet to me.  Not saying it's STIFF, but just felt planky.  i'll definitely ride it again, i'm just not excited to.. l o l

@matic i wouldn't say it's soft but not a charger either.  little bit past middle of the road. i'm 170ish.

I have a feeling there's going to be some deep gear discounts coming. I'm recalling $99 boards on Whiskey Militia in 2009. Good times in bad times.

Loving the exchange rate right now. I just got my 2020 US covert split for pretty much 450 shipped.

Those kind of prices were common even pre-Great Recession. Sierra Snowboard and Backcountry were selling stuff just stupid cheap and snowboard companies were manufacturing way too much product. We're also relatively late in the season, so I wouldn't expect anything nearly so dramatic. I would expect 40-50% off to pop up more than usual, but not the sort of 80% fire sales we saw back then.
