Snowboard Expert Gaelen Mast
Spring slush days!! (Okemo Mountain, April 2022)
  • Gaelen Mast

    Heya! my name is Gaelen and I've been snowboarding for longer than I haven't!

    I started snowboarding at age 11 and have been addicted ever since. As soon as I was legally able to work I got a job as a snowboard instructor at a local mountain and I haven't looked back! I've been working in the mountain resort industry for six years now including as an instructor, rental technician, terrain park crew member, and in a dedicated snowboard shop!

    For better or for worse snowboarding has become one of my biggest personality traits and I'll talk about it with anyone who will listen (seriously anyone)! Having worked for Curated for over a year, my main goal has always been to simply find customers the right gear that they'll truly stoked about, not push them to buy for the sake of profits. I've helped 6,000+ customers (and counting) and I'm confident that I can do the same for you!

    Great expert help.
    Gaelen was a great help to the shopping experience. He presented me with good suggestions. Was willing to explain why each item was good for me, and my wife, and why others may not have been a good choice as well. I really appreciate the time, and patience that he spent on us to help us feel comfortable with our purchase. Two thumbs up, 5 out of 5 stars... Gaelen was great.

His extra mile efforts have earned my trust, and I'll definitely be back next season. Thank you, Gaelen, for your exceptional support.

    Gaelen was great!
    He is so knowledgeable and took his time to learn what I was looking for even though I didn't really know what I was looking for, because I'm a beginner. He curated some options for me and gave me what I felt were his very honest opinion. A million thanks, Gaelen!

    Just genuinely seems like a good guy
    Gaelen always replied very quickly and thoughtfully whenever I had questions about my order or just about snowboards and gear in general. When I had an issue with one of my items, Gaelen quickly figured it out for me with the support team and updated me thoroughly every step of the way. This man deserves a raise!

    Gaelen Is Awesome!
    Shopping for my first board, binding, boot, pretty much everything setup and Gaelen 100% helped me narrow down what I was wanting/looking for. I let him know my skill level, likes and dislikes, and goals. He provided exceptional customer service with our Q&A and amazing recommendations! It was so hard to choose but I went with his top recommendation on the board and chose Capita! Thank you so much for helping me get ready for Tahoe, Gaelen! I am STOKED!

    Gaelen was amazing
    Gaelen was everything you could ask for (especially in an online “chatbot”) his answers were exactly what I wanted without feeling like I was being steered in a certain type of way. Extremely helpful and got me exactly what I needed. Would 10/10 recommend Gaelen every time

    Gaelen was amazing.
    He was so kind, polite and accommodating. I have never experienced customer service like this before and I work in customer service so it was quite a shock how simple, pleasant, and quick it was. Really excited to try out the new board and see how it works out. Thank you again Gaelen. You were definitely a homie and helped a girl out. I was terrified of buying something expensive that wasn’t a right fit for me but I’m feeling pretty confident with the purchase and stoked about the deal. Appreciate you so much Gaelen, oh yeah and you to Curated.. just kidding :)) thank you guys!!! 🤘🏻

    Best First Experience
    This is my first time getting any new gear and it couldn't have been a less daunting experience. I come the world of skateboarding and was worried about not knowing anything about snowboarding. The curated experts, Gaelen, made it a seamless experience.
