Bought my hypto on backcountry but it’s not the same quality as the original. These are mad in Thailand and get dinged up quite easily. Spend the extra money and buy directly from HS

This is not correct. I spoke to the manufacturer. Their custom boards come from Australia, but all of their standard boards are made in Thailand. That includes boards sold by Backcountry and by the manufacturer. The quality is the same, and this review should be deleted by Backcountry, or at least ignored by users. In fact, the board is beautiful, and arrived in great shape, with very speedy shipping.
