There are a few boards on the market made here in the good ol' U S of A but are there any boots made in the USA? I can't recall. and why not boots when often we give a hoot about boards made in the USA? <BR> <BR>what about the other equipment; ropes, vests, <BR> <BR>just a bit of random curiosity that popped in my head

Asia is big in textiles, which is probably the reason for little to no production of boots and vests in North America. Or at least thats my guess. Just a matter of profit margins and affordability.

Masterline and Fly High are made in USA for ropes and handles.

Jeremey, besides our boards being built in Denver, I'm working real hard to have our other products built in the U.S. as well...vests, bags etc...but Boots, is a whole other story, pretty much most USA footwear production has moved to Asia...to be competitive you pretty much have to build in Asia...
