Snowboard Expert Colby Henderson
  • Colby Henderson

    I was born and raised in Maine, 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.

    Super knowledgeable all around good guy!
    This is my second time using Curated. Last season I bought myself a whole new ski setup and this season used them to get a new snowboard and bindings for my 14 year old son. Colby was super responsive, messaging me back almost immediately each time. He is incredibly knowledgeable and thorough and could even offer real life experiences on the gear. However, what impressed me most was that he was more concerned about me getting the right gear for my son at a good price than him making a commission! This shows not only incredible character, but that he truly loves what he does and cares more about a 14 year old kid being on the best gear for him, than making a buck! I am beyond impressed with Colby and cannot recommend him enough.

    Best online buying experience
    I have 20+ years of snowboarding experience, but since having kids 3 years ago stopped had stopped riding. I was really particular in what I wanted to see in a board, and though Curated didn't have the size I was looking for, Colby was able to help me find the perfect deck for my riding style (Terrain Wrecker 160). Can't say enough about the process, and Colby's responsiveness. Will be recommending to family/friends, and I will be a return customer in the future.

    Colby - a true snowboard expert!
    Wow! I started the day confused and frustrated in trying to find the right gear for my new splitboard. Colby was super knowledgeable on the gear I needed, was fun to chat with, and was patient with my inexperience. After he found all the gear I needed - he gave me his small speech on safety in the mountains and highlighted importance of having the right avalanche gear. Thank you, Colby! You've started off my backcountry season well!

    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
