Answer a few quick questions to get started with Fabio
Snowboard Expert Fabio D.
  • Fabio D.

    I am a Swiss snowboarder living in Alaska and Montana. I grew up in a mountain town in Switzerland and was on skis for the first time before my second birthday. When I was 9 years old I started snowboarding and immediately was obsessed with it.

    I’ve snowboarded for over 25 years. In the early days, my focuse was on freestyle - kickers mainly. About 15 years ago I started getting into the back country. Climbing mountains and riding powder is my true passion. I also love riding perfectly groomed slopes with my friends and competing in the occasional banked slalom.

    Having the right gear is very important to me. I’ve always geeked out on gear, snowboards, shapes and materials.

    In 2012 i quit my job in Switzerland and travelled around the world for 4 years straight.

    I usually start my season in Switzerland, then find snow in the USA and Canada and come spring time get into the bigger mountains up in Alaska.

    True Professional!!!
    I continue to go back to Fabio after he helped me with my camping equipment and now he helped me with my snowboarding needs. He gives me so many options but is never pushy and gives his honest opinion on equipment and if he doesn’t know he will actually tell me that and finds the answer for me. Always gets back to me and is patient with me since my work schedule is a bit all over the place. I have recommended him to all of my friends and family looking to get any equipment because I know he will take care of them and steer them in the right direction. Definitely won’t be going with anyone else anytime soon.

    Excellent help
    I didn't know what kind of snowboarding gear I wanted. I knew my riding style, but that was it. Fabio helped me pick a steezy board and bindings that perfectly fit what kind of riding I want to do. He was responsive and incredibly knowledgable about all things snowboarding. I would recommend Fabio to anyone who is unsure what kind of snowboarding gear they want. My dude hooks it up.

    Best Customer Service I've ever Received
    Was very eager to help me out and teach me considering I had no idea what i was talking about. Listened to all of my concerns and tried to explain the ups and downs to all options. With every recommendation I got a detailed note explaining why that option was picked. Extremely friendly and often had some laughs on certain topics. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to buy gear.

    Never shopping anywhere else
    First experience with curated and I will be buying all my snow gear here from now on. East coast transplant still trying to find the best selection and deals. Fabio was able to provide me with 15 board options in the right size, price, and style of riding I have been looking for. Would highly recommend this service for folks who don’t know exactly what they are looking for.

    Fabio = homerun
    I stumbled across Curated today & couldn’t be more impressed with the user friendliness of the site, inventory & especially the customer service. Fabio’s no pressure approach combined with his extensive experience based knowledge is a breath of fresh air compared to “ski shop experts” pushing brands for their own benefit. Curated is the total package & is doing it right.

    Awesome PRO
    Fabio is the man! I gave him my specs, riding style, etc. and he presented snowboards, bindings, and boots with short write ups on why he chose each for me to make it relatable. We then discussed the list and narrowed it down. I then made my gear selections quickly. He knew exactly what gear fit my preferences. It was the service I wanted, and he exceeded my expectations. Thank you Curated and thank you Fabio for helping me select snowboard gear that I'm so stoked to try out next season.

    Fabio was great
    He listened and helped and offered his insight. I actually had a different expert at first and I wasn’t liking their options and then my buddy hooked me up with Fabio instead and he did great, needless to say I ordered my set up through him 🤙🏽

    Fabio Rules!
    Fabio helped me pick a board that was right for me, even as I searched for things outside his initial recommendation on my own and asked him questions about other products. He explained why different styles would/wouldn’t work for my riding style and helped me settle on a great board.
