I cannot say enough about Taylor. Took an overwhelming task and made it easy to follow, great options and even better pricing. Kind, empathetic, just plain awesome. I will be recommending Taylor and ‘curated’ to everyone I have the pleasure to speak with. My kid is going to be stoked!

Wasn't planning on making my purchase today but he steered me in the right direction with prompt knowledge and recommendations that took all of my input into account. Not pushy in the slightest. Left me with enough information right off the bat to keep it brief and feel like I had what I needed to make a decision.

So helpful with helping me decide. I ended up spending more than I wanted but feel great knowing that I’ve got the right gear that’ll hopefully last me a while. And also he gave me so many other options that were in and below my budget. Great service, awesome guy.

It was a pleasure working with Henry!
5 /5
I've been using the same skis for 13 years and have been agonizing over getting a new setup. After doing tons of research and spinning in circles, I decided to reach out to a Curated expert for help. Henry was exactly what I needed. He made sound recommendations based on my needs, was responsive to my many questions, and served as the voice of reason I needed. He also worked out a good deal. A couple hours after reaching out to Curated and connecting with Henry, I made my long awaited purchase. I can't wait to use my new set up.

Hayden was patient with me on the process. He made multiple recommendations and then adjusted those recommendations after I had barriers to the overall price. Ultimately I went with his personal recommendations because he instills confidence through his dialogue, reviews and overall approach.

I’m used to settling for less than optimal feedback from customer service reps and could tell pretty quickly that Grant was More than that. He definitely knew his stuff and took me on a journey of different boards until I felt really comfortable about my purchase. I bought a board based on his recommendation and excited to ride it!
