Brand:  Verdad
Interviewee: Demir founder

How would you describe the current state of the snowboard market? What big developments, changes, challenges, and/or opportunities are you seeing and how is your brand navigating them?
Big Brands are trying to kill all the small brands Luckily Small Brands have the nicest boards and designs  so they can survive thanks to the core of the riders, without their support their would only be uniformity

Following overall price increase, any positive developments with regards to manufacturing, sourcing, or logistics and the changes you’ve made? Are there any examples you can share of how your business pivoted effectively? What developments are you seeing with regards to product pricing?
Sorry nothing really positive ..  I had to place my order already before the 22 october way before sales .. minimum quantities are way to high for small brands … loose all margen on stock sales.. but the V stands tall , quitting still no option

Is e-commerce sales still strong since most brands have been put a lot of effort in physical retail?
my biggest client is still  an e commerce topdog
