  • Mike Dudek

    With a snowboarding career spanning almost 3 decades, including nearly a decade of working in various roles within the industry itself, I’ve had the incredible opportunities to experience a huge variety of different manufacturer’s gear first-hand, and have had a front-row see to the evolution of the sport and its equipment over that time. And even though my time working inside the snowboard industry is behind me, my enthusiasm for the sport, the desire to explore the mountains across the globe, and the passion for sharing what I’ve learned about the gear that I’ve used and the destinations I’ve visited along the way continues to this day.

    That’s truly why I joined the team at CURATED. I’m here to share my knowledge and experience with this and the next generation of riders. And hope that after I pass along just a bit of what I’ve learned, the person on the other end will be able to take their riding to the next level and will be inspired to explore different places and destinations that may not even be on their radar.

    Now, what do I need from you?? Be honest with me about what you’re looking for, your timeline, your budget, etc. I know the market well, and I will always look out for your riding season and your wallet! I’m always happy to find a better price, a different color, or put things on hold for a few months if that’s better for you. Just keep me in the loop! My ultimate goal is getting you set up with the gear that will help you achieve your goals and, most importantly, have fun.

    Wanted to surprise my son for Christmas with a new snowboard. Mike recommended 4 snowboard, a pair of boots and three bindings. Off of the reviews he sent to me I was able to pick out what I thought my 17 year old would want. I decided against surprising him since it was an expensive purchase; I should have just went with my gut feeling cause my son picked the exact same snowboard and bindings. And due to me second guessing myself, my son lost out on his first pick of the snowboard he wanted. But it still worked out, since he was tittering back and forth with the first and second pick. Mike was very helpful and made other recommendations when his first pick was sold out. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.

    Mike is super helpful
    I haven't replaced my board/bindings/boots for way longer than I'd like to admit and I came into the buying process not really knowing what to look for. I explained to Mike the type of riding I usually do and he made a couple suggestions with explanations as to why he picked them. He was quick to respond to any questions I had so I never felt like I was just waiting around for a response.

    Tara's experience with Mike
    Loved working with Mike. I have never had a sales person who really understood the clients and sport the way Mike did explained products and provide feedback on what is suggested for a rider. Mike was well educated on the stock that your company offers. To me snowboarding is not just a fun activity is it is my escape when things are too hard. A break from the everyday. A beautiful connection with nature and that self care we all really need. Mike took the time to ask questions about what was needed from the equipment and what I wanted to purchase so that I could make a good decision. I have not purchased a new setup for this sport in over a decade because it is expensive for us and I don't really know what to purchase. I feel like Mike went out of his way to really think about what I personally needed and what you had that would best suit me. I wish we had more Mike's in this world! Tara

    I had no idea where to start; mike gave me some great recommendations based on what I outlined I was looking for. I ended up buying a board that was outside my initial price range- his recommendations gave me a great launching pad to learn more about more options and narrow down what I wanted.

    Really great.
    Recommended good products, was honest about what features would/wouldnt make a difference for me, was funny and attentive. I didn't think I would be walking away with a board and I ordered immediately because i trusted it was exactly what i wanted.

    I needed a board, boots and bindings for my daughter. I told Mike what her style and sizes were and he gave me great information and choices. Bought all three pieces he suggested.
