  • Andre Santos

    I've been in the Outdoor Industry for the past decade. From ski clubs, to outdoor education courses, to helping friends get sweet setups and good deals on lift tickets. I also have spent a good amount of time in gear shops and resorts working and talking with other gear experts. I'd love to help you out and find out what the best equipment will meet your needs!

    I've since retired from any park fun and am now in love with being able to tour around and find the deepest powder on my Jones Spiltboard, I'll start to share more of that this season, hit me up on social media! Id love to see where you're taking turns this season and what gear setups you all are loving!

    What do I need from you? Be honest with me about what you are looking for, your timeline, your budget, etc. I'm an outdoor expert, not a sales man! I know this market extremely well, and will always look out for your shred season and your wallet! I'm always happy to find something cheaper, a different color, or put things on hold for a few months if that's better for you! Just keep me in the loop!

    Andre was very knowledgeable and honest about my needs
    I reached out to Andre to ask about getting into split morning. He chatted with me about the differences between split boarding and ski touring and made some excellent gear recommendations as well as suggesting that I try snowboarding and split boarding first through some local resorts before diving into a full set up. If I decide to invest in split boarding gear I’ll certainly return to him for his recommendations!

    Pointed me in the right direction
    We had a quick chat, nothing crazy or major. But as a complete beginner I feel like I have a little bit better of an idea of what type of gear I should be looking for, including size and board type based off his recommendations. I also really love the board he recommended not only is the design sick, but he picked one specifically for my needs and saved me a lot of googling!

    Great Recomendations
    Andre was timely with responses, personable, and knowledgeable. Needed an update in apparel this year and Andre presented multiple options for every need along with his personal experience with the apparel. Will definitely be heading back to him next year when I look to update my board!

    Super helpful & knowledgeable!
    I've been riding the same setup for the past 8 years or so, without much insight into which brands/products were better than any other. Andre was able to help me find the right gear within my riding style, skill level, & budget, and was extremely friendly and attentive throughout the whole process. I even messaged him on Thanksgiving and he still got back to me within the hour! Can't wait to try everything out this season!

    Andre is the best!
    I had an injury a few years ago and have been not sure if I wanted to get back into it. I spoke with Andre and he helped me pick out the perfect gear and helped me feel more comfortable overall about getting back out there.

    Eric's experience with Andre
    Very helpful, steered me to a product I probably wouldn’t have otherwise considered that will be a better fit for what I need. Was very responsive and answered all my questions.
