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 focus 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.

    Responsiveness
    It was a pleasure working with Fabio. He was extremely patient with us. I had initially spoken to him back in the summer when looking for a snowboard for my wife. We had held off on a purchase because we decided to see if an older board would work out for her. I asked Fabio to follow up with me after the winter had started. Right on cue, after a melt down on the slope that the board was too big and she couldn’t turn, I got a text msg from Fabio. The timing was perfect and I knew we needed to work with Fabio. He put together a tailored list of boards to choose from that were perfect for my wife to get over the hump. Much appreciated his efforts! I don’t normally write reviews but I felt compelled to wrote this one!

    Snowboard Expert!!!!
    What more is there to say...he knows his craft! Expect to be well informed and challenged to make some tough choices because he will explain all the pros and cons of the equipment all while speaking from experience. He stayed after his shift and kept on answering my 101 questions. Keep up the great service Fabio as it was much appreciated by a dad getting his daughter set up for the upcoming season!

    Super sweet & helpful!
    Fabio gave me a billion different options and narrowed down the differences between my final choices for me so I knew all the information I was looking for. He has plenty of experience and knowledge and it shows! He even offered to walk me through putting my gear together when it arrives. Fabio was super nice and I really think the products I ended up ordering are the best fit for what I was looking for.

    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.
