  • 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 raduis or the differences in core constrution im 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 snowboard when I wasn't actually snowboarding on the ski 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 Posiston at Chirsty sports 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!

    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.

    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!

    I’m so glad I found this service!
    Patrick was so incredibly helpful. This is my first time buying my own gear and felt a little overwhelmed by all the choices and my lack of depth in snow sports knowledge. Without Patrick, I know I would’ve ended up with the wrong gear for my level and style. Highly recommended!

    Super helpful
    Came into this concerned wasn't goin to be helpful maybe just another thing to just sell me something with out being explained. Patrick completely changed my mine with his understanding and knowledge of the equipment to accommodate issues I have with my ankle and issues it causes while snow boarding

    Great experience
    Super fast response. I’m honestly blown away with the experience. In the matter of 10 mins I got more expertise and attention than I would in my local shops. I also didn’t feel like I was being pushed inventory that needed to be removed from the shelves due to this being late season.
