Snowboard Expert Matthew Kaminski
  • Matthew Kaminski

    I grew up on the East Coast riding backyard jibs and the local hills. I was fortunate enough to go up to Vermont as a kid and ride Sugarbush, the best mountain on this planet (in my heart, I know there are better!) The terrain park was always where you could find me, even on a powder day!

    Now a days, I am living in Vermont and focus most of my riding on Freeride! I compete on the North American Freeride Qualifier circuit and aspire to one day take my skills into coaching. With over 20 years of snowboarding notched on my belt, I have seen everything in the industry and am ready to help you!

    Christopher's experience with Matthew
    Matt is a stellar part of your crew. That dude is on point. Kept in touch with me through the whole experience, responding to each message rather quickly. Which I may add that we were talking for a month before I made my purchase. I'm cheap so I was still shopping around and still went with curated!!! Thanks again matt!

    Caydent's experience with Matthew
    Matthew was extremely knowledgeable, knew exactly what the questions on the quiz would correspond to, and had many options regarding further questions. These options all suited my needs perfectly, and he gave an even further in-depth explanation as to which was the best, as well as his experience with the items himself.

    Matthew is Amazing!
    I am planning a snowboard trip after over 20 years off the mountain, so I am totally out of the loop and clueless about what kind of gear is even available. Matthew has been an invaluable support, providing me with tons of personalized suggestions and support. He is extremely knowledgeable and responsive and really easy to communicate with. He has offered detailed explanations about his recommendations, and is always quick to answer any questions I have. I highly recommend consulting with Matthew if you need any snowboard guidance at all!

    Matthew was patient and listened to my needs
    After some back and forth discussion we were able to identify products that were within my budget and met the goals for what I was looking for. I am excited to get back into snowboarding after 20+ years and Matthew helped make me aware of the options that exist. I am a heavy dude, currently at 280lbs.. Matthew helped make me aware of "volume shifted" snowboards and presented some options to me. He had personally tried the boards out and was able to make a solid recommendation. I am happy and I feel confident with the board that I selected.. FYI, that board is a K2 Party Platter, 157cm, and made for big dudes like me! I can't wait to get it on the slopes and take it for a spin!

    Richard's experience with Matthew
    Matt was super helpful and patient, and listened to my needs. He was able to narrow down some options and make me aware of products that I was previously unaware of.. As a result, I did end up purchasing a new snowboard and bindings within my budget and I am excited to see how the products perform!

    Jennifer's experience with Matthew
    It was awesome to have personalized help, and Matt was amazing! It that service is complementary, then I would absolutely recommend Curated, and Matt should get a commission for his excellent service. Being asked to provide a tip on top of buying very expensive equipment takes the curated experience down from 5 stars to just 3 stars. Matt was awesome, and should be recognized for that, but not by asking the customer to pay a tip.

    Super Helpful!
    Matt is a great advisor and on top of his game. He was always honest and gave helpful advice. He was very responsive to all my communications. He always kept me in loop when products became available as it was the end of season and everything was on sale but at the end he found the board I wanted at a great price.

    Best retail experience I have ever had!
    Honestly! Chatting with Matthew over the course of multiple days, both before and after purchase, was extremely helpful. He helped confirm some of my own research and presented new options and great deals. I know I can continue to ask him questions as I break in the new gear or shop for something new.
