On any of the wakeboarding sites? They don't have any banners on Wakeworld or Wakeboarder. All of the other big guys do:

CC, Bu, Tige, Supra

Anyone have any ideas?

I'll take a guess...because they spent all their advertising dollars giving away boats and sponsoring events? (Which, incidentally, jacks up the cost of every boat sell.)

Also maybe they got offended that we constantly bag on the non-existant Deck-Star. We know they monitor this site because they've used threads from here in their press releases before.

I don't buy the fact they are upset we bag on the "non-existant Deck-Star." Look at Tige, they used to get bagged on all the time, yet they are still willing to advertise on the board.

You know what Ziggy, I've never thought of that. Matt's answer makes sense, they do give a lot boats away each year and do sponsor a ton of people, which you know drives the cost of the boats up. Maybe because they just built a huge addition to the factory.

Maybe they feel they are such a big name that they do not have to advertise. Did G.M. every really advertise the corvette? Until recently, did harley-davidson have to advertise? Not that I am making the comparison between the quality of the products, I am just saying, why waste the cash when your name is brought up so much?
As a side note, does advertising really sway any of you one way or the other? I love the budweiser frogs, but I wouldnt drink bud. I love the twins on the coors light commercials, but have never tasted the beer. (mmmmmmmm.....twins.)

Why spend the money if you don't have to.

They expect their brand recognition to carry their sales. Maybe they don't have a problem selling all their boats?

They sure have spent some bucks on the new Xstar ads in magazines, the creepy ones with the Photoshopped deformed feet and earlobes and stuff.
