Snowboard Expert Patrick Bean
  • Patrick Bean

    Industry professional with over 14 years experience. I started working at the local ride shop, Alpine Accessories, where I started out as a repair techinician. This is where my passion with snowboard construction really started to gain momentum. If you want to crunch numbers over waist widths or sidecut radii or the differences in core constrution I'm your guy! After a few years of repair shop action, I moved into sales and eventually became the Snowboard Department Manager - re-vamping the department and talking snowboardinging when I wasn't actually snowboarding on the hill. This lead to me being head hunted by Vail resorts and shortly after moved to Avon, Colorado where I stayed until moving to Denver to take a position at Chirsty sports, where I quickly became their snowboard lead. After a couple of years there, I took a year off to well... snowboard. I returend to the industy to work with Evo Denver and Loveland Ski Area!

    On top of it, adaptable, and patient
    I started talking to Patrick a couple weeks before I actually wanted to buy anything and he rode out the time with me with great patience. He answered every question (and there were plenty), provided tons of great advice, and showed me new options throughout the whole time. He was incredibly flexible and friendly the entire time. It felt less like a sale and more like a way of learning features and how they work together! As someone diving into snowboarding more I couldn't have been more thankful. Highly recommend.

    Quick reply’s and knowledgeable answers.
    Patrick Bean is great to work with, in a matter of minutes I had personalized recommendations that met all my requests. Wasn’t looking to purchase right away but helped me narrow my search for an elite board. Love the service. I’ve found it very challenging to go to a store and find the snowboard “knowledge” your looking for, you kinda need to get lucky to be helped by the right person in store, this seems to be a much easier way to get the quality answers your looking for without even leaving the couch! :)

    Great info!
    With the amount of new specs and features on boards every year it's hard to know what you need.. Patrick was quick to respond and had ton of knowledge helping guide me in the right direction. When I'm on the mountain I won't have to worry about if my set-up is right for my type of riding! Would definitely recommend Patrick!

    Best decision ever!
    So happy I came across curated website. I was so confused and frustrated trying to find the right board for myself. No one wants to spend money just to realize after a season their board isn't fit for them. Which is exactly what happened to me and led me to Patrick from curated. Within just a few minutes Patrick was able to narrow down my search to a few boards. I was so relieved because i really needed an experts help. I've always purchases my previous boards in shops and asked all kinds of questions and no fault of these previous places .. but they just are not experts! I will stick with curated from here on out for all my gear needs thanks to Patrick. Be was so fast to respond, answered all my questions, and I actually love that I wasn't in a store environment being pressured or feeling like I was taking up too much of the dates person time. Also not having other customers fighting for attention. It really was the best experience I've had even not being able to physically check out the boards. Maybe as I get better and more seasoned I'll trust my own research but right now curated is the way to go.

    I am a true beginner at snowboarding but progressing very quickly- and however unsure I was about what I needed, Patrick knew what was right!! He was very receptive to my slope, price, and level specifications. I could not have spoken to anyone better!

    Has insider technical info
    Patrick provided actual new specific info that isn't readily available on internet. He knows his stuff and is able to have a very technical conversation. He understands how the many aspects of a snowboard come together to produce the ride. He helped me weigh pros and cons of sizing and width, with helpful insight that added real value.

    Great Help Couldn't ask for more!
    I came to Patrick multiple times over the course of a few days while trying to make a decision on what board I wanted. Eventually I decided on an Arbor Clovis 2020. When I looked at sizing on the evo website I was very confused as they listed my prefferred size board with a shoe size of 7-9! Patrick was quick to crunch the numbers for me on waist width and calm my nerves showing my normal size of 10-10.5 would be perfectly fine on a 157. Amazing guy, very knowledgeable and very nice! Till next time!
