    Great experience
    We’ve always used Jake in the past and we’re disappointed that he is no longer with the company. We were matched up with Garrett and he did not disappoint. Garrett was able to find the board my son wanted and price match to another company that was having a sale. Looking forward to working with him again.

    Garrett is da man!
    Garrett went above and beyond helping find the right board. No kidding, he put up with my indecisiveness for months. He's extremely knowledgeable and cool to chat with. Made shopping for my new board fun and it removed the stress of buying the wrong board. Highly recommend!

    Allison's experience with Garrett
    This service is the way to go if you have no idea what you’re doing and need professional assistance. I needed help with ordering a board for my husband. I’m a skier so I know nothing about boards. Garrett helped from start to finish. He made several recommendations and because I prefer a local company went with his top choice; it was beautiful and in my price range. He helped me with size, level, and style. I would highly recommend Garrett and this program!

    Megan's experience with Garrett
    I just want to say thank you to Garrett. He was very attentive to all of my questions right after I got off the mountain and wanting to get new gear! For someone who loves the mountain and doesn't have many people in my circle to get good insight, Garrett was the person I needed :). Thank you!!!

    Realistic and helpful
    I've never actually done research on my boards, I've always just grabbed them and dealt with the consequences. Garret was actually willing to explain the differences of board styles and give realistic and practical recommendations beyond my normal "yeah this board looks cool".

    Nothing but amazing!
    He’s here for many reasons. Obviously very knowledgeable and probably expert level in this amazing sports. But what impressed me the most was his follow-up. I was shopping then went away, then came back at midnight and he updated my options IMMEDIATELY and started conversation. So all of my questions were answered as I shopped his picks, and seriously he saved my time so much. It’s great to consult your options with a live person but it’s amazing that I can shop out of 5-6 that are recommended by expert like him instead of 50-60 that I don’t have any knowledge of. Amazing experience and will highly recommend curated.com and Garrett!

    Tell him what you’re looking for and he’ll find it. If you’re not sure he’s got plenty of ideas too
