Snowboard Expert Kelvin Hames
McCormick's Maze at Purgatory in Durango, Colorado
  • Kelvin Hames

    Growing up in Arizona, you would probably not expect there to be much snowboarding going on. While this is true to a certain extent, my home mountain resides in Flagstaff, Arizona. Arizona Snowbowl's basecamp sits at 9,500 feet elevation and averages 260 inches of snow each year. While attending college in Flagstaff at Northern Arizona university, I made Snowbowl my second home. I would be at the mountain any chance I could. Getting there for first chair, then heading down to get to my 10 AM class.

    Snowboarding created an outlet for me to experience nature and see an environment I never really experienced while growing up in the desert of Phoenix, Arizona. I eventually learned that having the right gear makes a world of difference and I wish I had learned that sooner. After discovering this, I did hours and hours of research, finding the right board for me. Now, I want to be able to help others find their perfect setup and have the same love and joy for snowboarding that I do!

    Kelvin is a G
    Kelvin is the man. Very down to earth, honest, and super responsive. Talked through some options that weren't even available on Curated to find what worked best for me. Never pushed me to buy something I wasn't interested in. Bought my Now bindings through Curated and never would've considered the brand without his knowledge and expertise. Stoked to try the Skat Tech. Ultimately, bought a Weston Hatchet because of his suggestion too but not through Curated because they didn't have the '23 model. Never would've looked at this deck without his advice and it is exactly what I was looking for in a board. POW slayer with freestyle capability. Stoked to rip the new setup this winter!
