  • Maicen Stuart

    What's up mountain-lovers! My name is Maicen, I'm originally from Salt Lake City but live in Vancouver, BC. I spent 4 years getting my Bachelor's degree in Astrophysics and Environmental Studies from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, GO BADGERS! I'm now currently a graduate student at the University of British Columbia. I've worked a variety of jobs in my life ranging from testing NASA rockets to scaring people in a haunted house and even studying massive star-forming regions. I have been all around the world, from ice caving in Iceland to trekking through the Himalayas. Through all of my experiences, I've always spent the winter season snowboarding. The mountains are where I thrive, backpacking in the summer and snowboarding in the winter. I absolutely love talking to customers about their experience, passion, and excitement to get on the slopes! See you out there!

    Expert Guidance and Exceptional Service: A Review of Maicen's Snowboard Expertise
    Rating: 5/5 would use again As someone relatively new to the world of snowboarding, finding the right gear can be quite daunting. That's where Maicen comes in. From the moment contacted him seeking advice,Maicen's expertise and passion for snowboarding were evident. Maicen possesses an impressive depth of knowledge about snowboarding gear, from boards to bindings to boots. What truly sets him apart, however, is his ability to translate that knowledge into practical advice tailored to each individual's needs and preferences. He took the time to understand my skill level, riding style, and budget before making any recommendations. What I appreciate most about Maicen is his genuine commitment to helping customers find the gear that suits them best. He didn't try to upsell me on the latest or most expensive equipment but instead focused on finding the perfect fit for me. His patience and attentiveness made the entire shopping experience enjoyable and stress-free.

    Maicen is wonderful!
    When I was connected to Macien I had already shopped around on the internet and two stores. I was over loaded on information and yet not the right information. Macien provided the exact information I needed to make an informed and supported decision. Macien provided links and videos as well as tips from his experience as a snowboarder. I even asked for snowboarding tips on how to set up my equipment up for the best possible use and he kindly provided expert knowledge and offered more if I needed it. I felt like I was talking to a friend. I have been snowboarding for almost 30 years and have met many people in the industry. Macien is a true expert.

    Maicen is awesome!
    Maicen was very helpful and informative over a 2 week period. He answered all of my questions, suggested some boards I would have never considered myself, and was very receptive to my suggestions and found ways to make them work with my weight and boot size. Being a new rider, it was nice to have an expert like Maicen to guide me through what is sure to be an overwhelming process for first-time buyers.

    Incredibly Cool & Easygoing
    I work night shifts, so I stumbled on curated super late at night and was in for a shock to meet Maicen (an actual human) and learn about Curated and the whole process. Not only did he curate and help me pick through products, but he worked with me and my ridiculous awake hours. Super knowledgeable and patient with me. Got a good deal and had a blast interacting with an expert. I have zero nerves about my purchase, which leaves just the excitement on getting my set and heading to play! Thank you so much Maicen!

    Testing Maicen with a new sport
    I first "met" Maicen when updating my backpacking gear summer of 2022. I decided to give the curated service a shot now that it's time to replace some tried and true winter sports gear, and he was all over it. I love the service and responsiveness of an expert from home. Thanks Maicen--I look forward to trying out my new gear!

    Maicen is the best!
    Maicen has been so patient with me. I was first in contact with him over a year ago when I had a plan to go snowboarding. He sent me so many different options and is so knowledgeable! He was able to answer all of my questions. I ended up not going through with a purchase as the plans for our snowboarding trip fell through. Now that we are going next month, he was the first person I reached out to for gear. I am new to this and he has been so patient and friendly. Highly recommend working with him!
