Snowboard Expert Colby Henderson
  • Colby Henderson

    I was born and raised in Maine, I fell in love with snowboarding 20 years ago and the fire still burns!

    I love the mountains, surfing in the ocean (or in waist deep pow... ask me what boards are best in the deep stuff... I’ll tell ya!) and all things outdoors.

    I am passionate about what I love, I would be honored to share my knowledge with you and get you on the equipment that best fits you and your journey as a snowboarder.

    First EVER board & gear purchase
    I have been snowboarding for about a couple of years. Renting a board every time I go somewhere. But that + the lift tickets can get expensive, and there's nothing like saying "yea, that's mine and having a sense of ownership". So last season I decided to get a job (I am in high school) and buy my first board, bindings, and boots. When I tell you I knew nothing about boards, I mean NOTHING. I didn't know anything about sintered vs extruded bases, stiff vs soft boards, nothing. And then covid hit....Couldn't go snowboarding, so no point of buying a board. Came back this winter, picked right where I left off. I asked him about what board would fit my riding and experience best. And he recommended about 15 boards. Finally, I picked the propa camba 155cm. But man, he answered every question from bindings, to boots, to even goggles. I would've been so lost without him. SO helpful.

    Really great help!
    He genuinely enjoys it when he's found the perfect board for others seeking help. Colby and I landed on an awesome board and I already recommended my best friend that he talk to this guy for help finding a snowboard. Colby is very responsive, friendly, and knowledgeable. He quickly suggested several boards for me to look at. I didn't understand much about the different profiles, camber/rocker, etc... of boards and how each of them would effect my ride. We just kept talking through it and he excitedly showed me another board that really seems to be the perfect fit. Colby saved me a lot of time and really made me feel confident that I'm going to have a blast with this board. I did not hesitate to leave him a tip, he is great at his job. Thanks again Colby!

    Nothing but great things to say...
    Colby's help and persistence the last couple weeks really made using Curated for the first time a great experience. As someone who used to know everything about snowboarding industry many years ago, it was great to connect with someone who knew his stuff and could help me find new gear from companies I hadn't heard of versus defaulting to the expensive household names.

    most helpful I've had anywhere!
    I am new to the sport and don't know much. Colby more than met my needs and I am just so happy he was here to help me. He answered all of my questions and concerns so kindly, he broadened my knowledge! I am extremely grateful he was the expert I was given to work with. Talking with him was very easy and fun! He most definitely had my best interest and now here I am with my first snowboard happier than ever! I will be back in the future and hope to speak with him next time!

    So helpful!
    Colby is a real person who knows what he's talking about and is not a robot! When I first found Curated I thought it would be a computer generated list of snowboards but it wasn't. I've spent all day bugging him with questions that most people probably know the answer to but he laid it all out in a way I could understand. He is super encouraging and patient. I'm much more confident in what I ordered on his recommendation than I would be if I hadn't had his advice. I definitely went for a nicer setup than I would have if I was left to my own research. 5 stars, 2 thumbs up, I would recommend him all day long! I'm so excited for everything to arrive (including snow ;)!

    Perfect advice, great deal, easy purchase.
    Colby really took the time to get to know my riding style and preferences before making any suggestions. He helped to narrow down the options to ensure I was matched with a board that will help me to have the best snow season yet. He was patient, knowledgeable, and willing to answer my questions. I can’t wait for everything to arrive!

    This guy rules!
    Back in 2019, Colby started working with my on finding the best boot/snowboard/binding/ combo. When Covid shut everything down, I stopped pursing my dream snowboard package. Flash forward to nearly a year later, and Colby and I picked up right where we left off, as if we chatted a few days ago. He's really patient and really knowledgeable. He's the kind of guy you would love to share the office with. Colby clearly has a vast knowledge of snowboarding and can really help you with finding the right gear and is committed in having your purchasing experience that's catered to your price range and expectations. He's also really patient and understanding. Highly recommended

    All-Mountain Expert
    I was looking to find some more information on All-Mountain boards, maybe get a few more suggestions after having a varying search. Colby was able to advise, direct, and affirm my choice and thought process in board decision-making. He was very responsive throughout a long day of searching and kept suggesting boards throughout the day. By far, he gave me one of the best customer service experiences I have had.

    I have been looking for a new board for the longest time and was looking everywhere for the right one. I didn't expect an actual person to help me find one but I am so appreciative of Colby for helping me and explaining everything to me. He helped me find the perfect board and bindings at an awesome price. If you need help figuring out the right board, binding, boots or pretty much anything about snowboarding, Colby is the man.

    Colby is great!!
    Colby really appreciated what I was looking for in my first snowboard setup and helped me close the gaps for little details to make sure I have the best experience on the mountain. Colby is easy to talk to, genuine, and didn’t push for a sale - he took the time to consider budget, color palette, and gave great advice. I bought when the time was right for me and look forward to working with Colby again in the future!
