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!

    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.
