    Note!!! I instruct snowboarding full-time at Park City over the winter, so response times may vary throughout the season, but I do make it a point to check in a good handful of times a week and am very happy to schedule a time to chat thoroughly to avoid spotty communication. Thanks so much in advance and get those turns in! 👍

    Victor was incredible
    He asked me so many questions to make sure that I was getting exactly what I wanted and what worked best for my riding style. He was super responsive and explained everything to me in a way that was easily digestible so I was sure the board was right for me.

    Great Service!
    Victor made looking for products so much easier and really answered all my questions. When asking about a specific board he answered truthfully and wasn't just trying to make a sale. It was very refreshing and I ended up getting exactly what I needed.

    Super Helpful with a Women's Freestyle Board setup
    Was so knowledgeable! Came to curated thinking I wanted a B-Nice however Victor informed me about board sizes for freestyle and that this one did not have the size for me. Told me about a Lib Tech similar specs and I got a chance to research it and per reviews and YouTube exactly the type of riding I want to progress to. Also gave me several binding options and now I have my new set up I can't wait to rip on before the end of the season. I finally know I have the gear I need to improve and there was no guessing games with Victor helping me. Highly recommend!

    Victor took me from not knowing anything about snowboard gear or what I wanted to picking out a whole set of equipment and also learned a lot about boarding
    Victor gave me options for boards bindings helmets and goggles and when I had questions for certain board or certain pair of goggles he gave me an in depth explanation of pros and cons for that piece of equipment , and even though I didn't know a single thing about snowboarding equipment before this he still understood what I was looking for and what Im going for with my riding

    If Victor's 99+ five star reviews isn't enough here is one more!
    I am an indecisive person and have been looking to upgrade my snowboard for 2 winters now. After endlessly searching on other websites I finally discovered Curated. I filled out the info about what I was looking for on a whim and Victor messaged me also immediately. 12 messages later I decided! His responses were very fast, detailed, personal, and helpful. We chatted so he could understand my goals for a new board and he had great non-bias comments when I asked specific questions. He didn't push the most expensive board and I really feel satisfied with my purchase. I would recommend Victor to anyone looking for a real knowledgable genuine person for snowboard selection advice!

    Makenzi's experience with Victor
    Victor was the most helpful and customer-focused person I have EVER had the pleasure of working with. He literally responded in under 3 minutes every time I messaged him - DAY OR NIGHT - and answered a million+ questions with technical expertise & in layman’s terms. Even when I had “aesthetic” preferences, he took those into consideration and brought me more options that fit my criteria and feedback, but would not sacrifice performance. I am so excited to receive my new snowboard and bindings, as they are perfectly tailored to me on the mountain. You bet I’ll be returning to Curated and, more importantly, Victor, for everything in the future.
