How long have you been in business?
Smokin is proud to have been making high quality snowboards in the US for 21 years now. What started out as a humble basement operation has snowballed into the company it is today!
Why did you name the company Smokin?
In November of 1990 International Snowboard Magazine published an article written by famed shred photographer Trevor Graves titled “A Smokin Jay”. It was Smokin founder Jay Quintin’s first article in a magazine and instantly the nickname was born. When it came time for Jay to start making his own snowboards in ’96 it only made sense to give it the namesake which had become his trademark.
Are you owned by Lib Tech/Mervin/Quiksilver?
Although we have a great relationship with the guys at Mervin and they have licensed one of the sickest technologies to hit snowboarding since highbacks to us(Magne Traction); we have no formal affiliation with any of these companies. Smokin is an independently owned brand run solely by the snowboarders you see representing the company every day. There are no silent investors, behind closed door deals, or puppet leadership; just snowboarders with the desire to create the best snowboards possible. We have built a positive relationship with these companies on the foundations of Jay’s days as a pro rider. Throughout the mid 90’s Jay rode for Lib getting his first taste of snowboard design and manufacturing. We have the utmost respect for the guys at Mervin and can only hope that as they continue to grow and succeed more companies will take note of their positive ethical practices and follow suit in their commitment to the advancement of snowboarding.
Is it true that you put weed in every Smokin board that gets pressed?
If there is marijuana inside your Smokin board it was probably an accident, and we do not recommend Smoking your board or attempting to dig it out as both of these are not covered under warranty. In all honesty this would not be very cost effective, and a waste of a lot of good weed. Although we don’t put any weed in the boards, clinical studies have proven that Smokin boards WILL get you higher than any other snowboard out there.
For all the info you need on handling a warranty situation click here. Generally your best bet is to contact the shop you purchased your Smokin board from and they will be happy to take care of you. Whether it is a manufacturer’s defect or just plain old board abuse, Smokin has your back with 3 year warranties and Bummer Replacement.

Hey Smokin, why do you talk so much shit all the time?
Call it talking shit, telling it like it is, hating, or just some lighthearted ribbing. We eat breathe and dream snowboarding and have a personal interest in the direction we see our sport going. When companies are doing it for the money and not the shred, it catches our eye and we are the last ones to back down. That being said we let our twisted humor take over and crank the amps up to 11. Some of you might laugh until you puke, others might get turned off, but the smack we talk is just too strange to be fiction.
