Snowboard Expert Dave McCaul
Mammoth bliss.
  • Dave McCaul

    On shred since 1990, snowboarding is not just a hobby for me, it's a lifelong passion that I love to share with others. In the three decades of product research and selling I've done at well-known outlets like The House, REI and others, I've developed expert technical knowledge that can cut through the hype to get you the best gear for your needs. I currently live on the road full-time in our RV and catch preseason at Trollhaugen in Wisconsin, but spend most of my winter at Bear and Mammoth. I have owned 40+ boards and still have every one. Did I mention I eat, sleep, and breathe snowboarding? Let me help you get hooked too!

    Very appreciative of the way he handled working with me, let me have a budget and he stuck right to it! This is one of the best sites to for sure get everything that you are looking for if you’re not 100% sure! Thank you Dave, I will be coming back to you if I need anything else.

    Marco S's experience with Dave
    Dave helped me for 5 days find a board and make sure that what I was about to purchase fits me and is exactly what I am looking for as well as giving me other options to choose from. The website is very easy to work through and find what I need although in my case the Ultrawide boards were not easy to find and were only pointed out because Dave had sent them to me. Everything else was great.

    Very friendly
    Dave immediately made me a list of his top 5 recommendations for me based on my quiz. Responded immediately and didn’t act like a salesman at all, instead he actually seemed interested in finding what would best fit me. Price wise and gear type. You can’t find the knowledge he gave to me just anywhere.

    The Man
    Been surfing 25 years and know new boards like the back of my hand. Thought I’d be able to figure snowboards out. Couldn’t be that hard, right? I’m an idiot. Dave was like your local shop guru with a ton of experience and knowledge to help me figure out what I needed on my first board after renting for years. Super helpful and answered all my questions.

    Dave was so helpful!
    I got paired with Dave last season but deciding I was going to rent again. I finally decided to invest so I can get the most out of my season. This is the first time I’ve purchased any of my own gear and Dave made it so easy and his notes helped me decide what my best choices were. I will keep in touch with Dave in the future for recommendation.

    Dave was monumentally helpful
    Dave took the time to educate me on all the different types of board set ups and then helped me select what was best for me based on my experience and location. He was very responsive, super friendly, and funny! Couldn’t recommend any more

    Dave is the man!
    I had no clue what I needed to get into snowboarding. Dave was able to point me in the right direction every step of the way and answered all the questions I had. I walked away feeling extremely comfortable with all the items he helped me pick. Thanks for everything Dave, you are the man!

    He answered all my questions and always made sure I had the best advice!! Always so nice and made me feel like all my opinions were valid. After he made my original list, he even included more boards after I sent him some I liked.
