Snowboard Expert Chuck Schembre
  • Chuck Schembre

    I live in the eastern Sierra Nevada right near the Tahoe Basin with my 2 kids and wife, and live close to many Tahoe ski areas. Curated is a side gig for me, as it is for must of experts, and I have a career as an Environmental Soil Scientist working to improve water quality and soil health...but I live and breath snowboarding every other minute of my days! I am consistently one of our top ranked snowboard experts, and strive to take care of my customers and make online gear shopping fun and reliable to get set up with quality within your budget. When I am not working I am skateboarding, snowboarding, mountain biking and playing in the high sierra lakes with my family.

    I didn't grow up as child snowboarding and it came to me in my adult years when I had the funds to hit the resorts. I grew up playing traditional American sports while gravitating to action sports like BMX, mountain biking, surfing and bodyboarding. Snowboarding has become my number one, and I have taken it to the next level, and ride all types of terrain, from park to backcountry. I have a huge passion for snowboards in general, collecting, repairing and building boards, and teaching my kids how to ride (my son 12 yr old rips harder than my wife now!). So if you have little ones you are buying gear for, I am your guy! I strive to bring a practical and fun approach to selecting boards and gear, and I understand what the average rider is looking for in their gear to bring massive stoke into their lives. I have a huge passion for snowboards and I am always seeking to better understand how snowboard technology and the uniqueness of each board or bindings creates a different ride. Helping people select great snowboard gear that fits their style and needs brings me great joy.

    Chuck went the extra mile to make sure I was covered!
    Chuck shared his expert knowledge of snowboarding and took extra time to send links to videos of the products he thought would be right for me. He answered/responded to all of my questions quickly and with great answers. Anyone who gets to work with him as their expert is lucky! Thank you Chuck, Jeff

    Best customer service I have ever had. I never write reviews and but this man went above and beyond to help. Had an ongoing conversation with him starting at 10am then had to go to work hopped back on at 9pm and he was still there to help. Nothing better then someone who cares. Give him a raise already

    Extremely helpful and patient!
    Chuck was super patient with me as I picked out my first board with my novice skills. I debated going into stores or secondhand stores for my first set of gear, but felt lost with my lack of knowledge picking something out. Chuck helped me find something perfect for me and I'm super excited to ride this season.

    A true snowboard expert!
    Chuck is clearly an expert when it comes to snowboarding. He's super friendly and leave no question unanswered. He's also very approachable, making it easy for me to ask "dumb" questions. Very respectful of the set budget and actively looking for the best deals, without compromise quality

    Chuck was so helpful!
    I came on this site expecting a bot to just give me a list of snowboards that fit my criteria but I was blown away when Chuck came online and started helping me find the perfect fit for me. He was super friendly and made me feel confident about my purchase. I can't wait to try my new board and boots, thanks, Chuck!

    Great experience with Chuck's help!
    I am a really good snowboarder but a really bad shopper and Chuck made the experience easy, and fun. He is knowledgable and i loved how easy it was to find a great fit! I would have wasted a lot of time aimlessly shopping on my own. Highly recco!

    So easy to work with. So knowledgable.
    Chuck was amazing to work with. Spends time understanding your needs and goals, and then shares just the right amount of options to pick from. He responds quickly and is super friendly. What I was most impressed with, though, is the personal service he provides. We first connected way back in Q1 2022, and we decided to re-connect in the Fall to see if there were any deals. He even set a reminder to check-in in October. When I reached out in September, he was able to pick up right where we left off. I shared my progress, and he was able to curate a new set of recommendations based on that. Amazing service. Highly recommend working with Chuck!

    Knowledgeable and friendly
    Chuck was easy to talk to and stuck with me on my 3 day search for a new board and bindings. We talked about terrain and ride styles to hone down the options. Chuck was very knowledgeable on all products and was able to answer all questions and even offer professional opinion. All Chucks great qualities as a rep helped me pick the perfect setup

    Jackie's experience with Chuck
    I am a beginner snowboarded buying gear for the first time. Chuck was great at providing options and steering me towards equipment that best fits my needs. He responded quickly to any questions I had and would shop again at Curated based on his customer service!
