    From the flatland of Indianapolis to the steep and deep of Salt Lake City. As a grom, I found my love for snowboarding by riding the small hill that is Perfect North Resort. The Midwest isn't particularly known for elevation, so the area to perfect my craft was minuscule. Like many other midwestern snowboarders, I realized the true beauty of park/freestyle riding. After graduating high school, I decided to take my talents to Salt Lake City, where I fully engulfed myself in the snowboarding culture. While working as an instructor at my local resort, I started my own small business in order to better acquaint myself with the gear. I've tested and evaluated every brand you can think of, with that being said I will never recommend anything I wouldn't be absolutely ecstatic to rip myself. Many don't realize the infancy that snowboarding is currently in, only 7.7 million people participate in snowboarding every year. I wish to increase the accessibility of snowboarding to beginners and contribute to the growth of the industry in any way possible. It is stressful buying new gear, so let me alleviate the headache and get you what you need the first time around.

    Super helpful and personable!
    Jake was super responsive and helpful throughout the day I decided I wanted to place the order. And I mean ALL throughout the day (from 1PM until like 2 AM…talk about dedication!). He seemed super knowledgeable and I feel so happy and confident about my choice in gear!

    Jake is the man
    Jake was patient the whole way through. Wasn't in a hurry to buy but knew I'd buy from him based on all the help. He never felt pushy, was always helpful, and was politely persistent in making sure I was still interested. It was never too much, and I'm glad I finished the purchase when it felt right. Couldn't recommend him enough.

    Jake was so helpful!
    I went in knowing a little about what I needed and Jake quickly took my experience and riding habits to find me a great board and bindings! He answered all of my questions and gave me recommendations for future purchases! I wasn’t even sure I was going to purchase, but Jake’s no-pressure, knowledgeable approach made me confident in the choices he helped me make. I can’t wait to try out my new gear the next time I’m in the mountains!

    Jake was so helpful!
    Jake was top notch when it came to helping me decide on the right set-up. He was super personable and helped me decide on my first board set-up ever after converting from being an east coast skier! I ended up shopping locally for my gear, but with his recommendations I felt entirely prepared and like I knew what would suit my abilities and skill level best! I’m now stoked for the season to try everything out!

    Jake's the Man
    Hit up Jake very skeptical and thining he was just a bot that would recommend any board. After messaging him about my interests, he really cared about what I was looking for and helped me find a board that fits within my budget. All in all, he helped me out and I owe him big time.

    Jake is incredible! So knowledgeable and kind. He gave me great options and really listened to what I was saying and wanted. I'm so lucky to have gotten paired with him. I love the whole idea of this sight. It's great having someone who knows their stuff, then just blindly going about it myself. Thanks again! Highly recommend!!

    Jake is a G
    I don't think I would have known where to start buying my first board without all of Jake's help. He took all my preferences and specs into consideration, answered my (many) questions all while being so patient and considerate. Also, he's a funny dude. 10/10
