New MIA snowboards are being released for 2001 with superior designs, materials, tooling, and a new partnership with Momentus Mfg. . Having concentrated on “cap” style performance snowboards since 1993, MIA continues to utilize experience and innovation at a new state-of-the-art facility. “Our focus has been to make the best performance boards with top quality designs and materials” says co-founder Jamie Chomo. “We have grown in this business by building the highest-grade snowboards possible and by working closely with our individual riders.”

MIA Snowboards has been making pre-release boards available in preparation for on-time delivery of snowboards starting August 2001. These are MIA’s strongest, fastest, and lightest boards ever built.

The pre-release decks are MIA’s final product allowing die-hard riders and dealers to experience the new shapes and materials. Production samples of the traditional MIA Destroyer and Link series, and the newest technical freestyle design, the TRS, are now available. Creative Director, Bruce Maurey, and Nick Francke’s graphics compliment MIA’s proven performance.

MIA Team riders are Nick Francke (OR), Eric Kovall (MA), Brian Barb (NH), and Helli Wacker (AUS).

NorthStar Distribution, Inc. of Seattle, WA. currently distributes ASS Industries product line of HaulASST performance wax & TightASST mounting hardware, and MIA snowboards.
