I met the photographer who took the picture of the bear on my board! Crazy the people you meet on the slopes.
  • Max Joyce

    I was lucky enough to have parents that brought me to skiing lessons when I was pretty young. I did it for a few years and then in high school when I was 14 I switched to the dark side, and I have been snowboarding ever since. I grew up in Massachusetts shredding the ice covered slopes of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. As soon as I went out west to Mammoth Mountain for the first time I knew that snowboarding was going to take up a significant portion of my life in the future!

    Since I started to snowboard I've been to many different places, and despite never having a job in the snowboarding industry I've learned through friends and mentors along the way. Part of what I love about snowboarding is traveling to different places, and two seasons ago I was able to go to every mountain on the Ikon Pass in the United States. Last season I spent the winter traveling again chasing the snow and tried out some new spots as well. I love riding steep powder and difficult lines. I love talking gear and am excited to help you find what fits you best!

    Jerome's experience with Max
    This is my first time shopping with Curated, my online experience was great easy to navigate looking up some snowboard gear and received a message from Max. He is awesome, I had a lot of questions about snowboard gear and he was kind enough to give me a call and chatted on the phone about what I was looking for and he made it so easy and narrowed it down for me. Thanks Max You're awesome.

    Max is awesome!
    Max made picking out a snowboard and accessories such a blast! For my first time buying a board he made it very easy. He is very knowledgeable and taught me a lot about boards and what would be best for me. He gave great recommendations and explained it all step by step. I'd definitely recommend to anyone, from beginners to even advanced boarders. Thanks Max!

    Max is the best!
    Max was knowledgeable, available and worked hard to help me get all the gear I needed to shred the gnar this year. I'm an intermediate boarder (8th time boarding) and I'm finally really to buy my own gear. Max not only gave me greats recs but he was good at explaining and educating me too. He was able to price match an item and answer questions about some options I found on my own too. 10/10

    Max was extremely helpful and a pleasure to speak with!
    I came to him with a tight budget and very little knowledge. Max was engaging, super friendly, and helpful right off the bat. He worked with me to give me recommendations that fit my needs in a timely and professional manner. Even when I came back to ask him for more advice a few weeks later, he was still just as kind and ready to be of assistance. As I come from a customer service background, and having worked in well known and established companies, I truly appreciate Max's trustworthy, attentive, and patient demeanor throughout our discussions. He even sent videos with voice-overs explaining the products in more detail, a great touch! Not to mention he helped get me a great deal on some awesome snowboard boots! Thank you so much Max!! I will definitely come back for more advice in the future!

    Patient and always ready to help
    Max was nothing but patient and helpful to me with my gear selection. Started the conversation beginning of November and stuck out with me until my purchase at the end of November. After explaining I needed some time before purchasing, he continued to give occasional nudges every week without being overbearing. He also explains everything in a way a new buyer will have confidence with their purchase!

    Best customer service ever received
    Ain’t got much to say cept I was totally lost and Max helped me find the right board and boots for me. And then was patient when I wanted a specific color and look, then helped me find a great deal that people have told me they’ve never experienced. Definitely recommend and hope he continues to help others the way he helped me.

    Max was so helpful!
    I was on a budget looking for a whole bundle of snowboarding gear and Max made sure he could find the best deals for me while also finding me top-quality equipment. Ended up paying much less than my friends did for all my gear. This guy's great and he can give you his perspectives on a lot of different brands out there.

    Max was very knowledgeable and super easy to have a conversation with! When we started talking I had an idea of which board I wanted, but still he asked questions to make sure it was the right fit and gave me feedback to help me make the decision for myself. Thank you so much for your help Max!
