    100% boarding bro! If it's a board- I ride it. When it comes to snowboarding, I obsess over every little technical detail to put you on the perfect ride. Use my obsession to your advantage and use my endless researching to get the perfect gear!

    I've been snowboarding for over 25 years. Same for skate, surf, and wakeboarding. I've worked in the snowboard and surf industry for more than 10 years. Everything from the East Coast's biggest snowboard shop, to sales rep, to tuning tech. I live in NC but take monthly trips out west- Mostly to Colorado but I love riding anywhere with deep pow and thick tree runs.

    Snowboarding is my favorite but in the summer months, you can find me at the skatepark or taking a surf trip to Central America. My dog's name is Charlie Moo Cow and he's my favorite 'person' in the world. I've also got a great gal who never makes me choose between her and the mountain. Life is good!

    I really dig setting people up with great rides. Having gear that's both comfortable and best suits your needs will make or break your snowboarding experience. Let's chat and I'll turn you on to the best gear at the best price!

    Lasette's experience with Shane
    Thanks to Shane this experience of ordering a surprise Snowboard & Bindings was definitely smooth sailing. He was very knowledgeable about all products and the best part was he was able to keep everything I ordered within my budget. We have not had a chance to try out the snowboard and new bindings BUT we are definitely looking forward to it! I’ll be coming back soon to order some products for myself! Thanks again Shane!

    Shane is the best!
    Shane was super patient with me and taught me a ton about shopping for a board and boots that perfectly meet my style, ability and interests. It was great to get to know Shane and I loved having his insights at my finger tips. It was like chatting with my snowboard buddies about how to find the best gear. He was also like a camber 101 professor. Super great 5 star experience, will not hesitate to reach out to Shane again for my next snow adventure purchase.

    Shane made the whole process easy and fun!
    I've been riding for a long time, and using an equally old board (1998 Eldo) and Shane taught me about the tech of the future. It was a good time, he answered all of my questions and I felt like he understood what I wanted. Not only was it fun to chat, and he helped me land on a sick Lib Tech Orca, he also scheduled a follow up video chat after the board arrives so we can dial in the settings. That, my friends, is what sets this experience apart from the rest. Thanks again.

    Awesome Experience
    Had never heard of curated before- but what a great experience! Shane was more helpful than 3 people in local stores; he took the time to understand what I was looking for and quickly helped me lock in on a couple of different options for a full set up. And while we did most of the communication while I was at lunch on my phone, Shane was immediately available a few hours later when I reconnected with him from home. The whole experience was excellent! Highly recommend!

    Incredible Knowledge, Great Vibes
    If you get lined up with Shane, you're good to go. Was looking for a new board, immediately he went to work and showed me options that fit exactly what I was looking for. Shane was so friendly, helpful, and informed, the experience and conversations we had sold me the board I needed without hesitation. I truly love this platform and with folks like Shane on board, I know im going to be taken care of. Snagged myself a 22 Libtech TRS and can't wait to shred, thanks Shane!!

    I came to get a board for my bf and Shane knew exactly what questions to ask and set me up with a great board! He made the whole process so quick and easy for me. I'll 100% come back to him when I'm ready to get more gear for myself!
