Snowboard Expert Frankie V.
Bluebird day near Breckenridge!
  • Frankie V.

    Hailing from Chicago, Illinois. In 2003 I picked up my first rental Rossignol from Alpine Valley resort in Elkhorn, Wisconsin (proceeded to snap it in half racking on a tree) I was hooked.

    After 6 years stuck in the Midwest "ice sheets". I got my first taste of Rocky Mountain powder. From that moment it was assured that I would abandon the plains for the heart of Colorado.

    This life is short and we're not getting younger. Let's get out there and explore those nearly unattainable back bowls and chutes suited only for the bold and the avalanches that follow.

    Frankie knows what’s up
    Frankie clearly really cares about snowboarding and making sure you’re gonna be on the best gear for you. It never felt like he was trying to sell me anything, just help me understand what everything is and how it will perform. He found some cool stuff that I wouldn’t have considered otherwise, and got me a great deal. Really happy I came here and got matched with him

    Highly Effective
    Frankie found me a sick board within 10 minutes. I have been searching online for awhile and in town too. He quickly found me a board with bindings that worked out for my style of riding and it has a killer design. He gave a me a description for all of the options he found which made it easy in selecting what I wanted. Lastly, the options were super cheap compared to what I was looking at elsewhere.

    Super Helpful and Knows his stuff!
    Frankie was super helpful in the recommendations on which board was suited for my riding style and experience level. As an avid boarder for over 25+ years, I finally took the dive to upgrade my equipment. It was long over do as my equipment was 10+ years old. He took the time to explain each board based on the specs of the board and the questions I had. Which in end made my decision easier to see which board was fitted for my riding style.

    Frankie is awesome! Very Knowledgeable!
    I reach out to curated.com after countless hours of shopping boards online for a week. They hooked me up with Frankie and after asking a few questions on my style of riding and body build he had a selection of awesome boards for me to choose from. I am a big dude with a size 14 boot and needed a board that would not toe drag while on the mountain and he set me up with the 2021 Libtech Skunk Ape. They delivered the board to the ski resort super fast (the board arrive to the resort before I did). I took it out today and it is now officially my favorite board to ride. If you’re a big dude the Skunk Ape is the way to go! Thank you 🙏🏽 Frankie! 🙌🏽

    Awesome Information, Super Knowledgeable
    Frankie was not only knowledgeable on snowboarding gear from helmet to boots/bindings/boards (head to toe), but he is also extremely patient and interacts like 'a real person' both joking and laughing at jokes. If you are lucky enough to get Frankie as your online expert to assist you, definitely listen to him. He even went the extra mile to call a shop I rented from to find out the year/model of the board they gave me and identified the specs were all wrong for me, even though I told the shop I was a beginner. Curated has certainly picked the right person for suggesting gear to beginners as well as more experienced levels of boarders.

    Frankie knows his stuff
    What I appreciated about Frankie was how he took the time during the off-season to help me find my first splitboard setup. He answered all my questions and told me a few things about snowboarding I did not know even though I've been riding for over 20 years. Thanks, Frankie.
