The Curated Take

Grant K, Snowboarding Expert
By the Expert Community

This board is a mean machine. If you are a fan of fine wines and luxury, this may be the board of your dreams. It loves it all from the back-country trails to groomed and more. Tremendous edge hold and she loves park. She has plenty of pop so reaching the moon will not be an issue!! This would be the most ideal board suited for the rider who just can't get enough of everything. The proper companion would love riding everything but the kitchen sink. Take her anywhere and you'll do nothing but smile. Some may say that this board is a little too heavy but I would have to disagree because the dampening and stability at high speeds truly make this board a monster. I have experienced many boards heavier than this one and it feels dependable and just right! When the stoke of riding gets the best of you and you send it a little too hard and too fast you can rest assured that your life is in great hands on this board. It saved me quite a few times when hitting big jumps, hitting rails and dropping cliffs. This board is great for day 1 riders all the way up to pros. It's shockwave camber profile is less prone to catch edge due to the rocker in the center of the board. Great edge hold on icy or hard packed conditions due to the edge technology as well.

Ideal for
  • All Mountain
  • Flexible but stable
  • Very intuitive
Not ideal for
  • Some could say that this board feels heavier than most

Ladies we’ve been aggressively focused on improving our listening and communication skills…hence the Women’s Proto Slinger. You asked for a softer, more playful, less full-bodied twin and we bring you the asymmetrical end-allbe-all of freestyle snowboards. The best thing about this board is it will surpass your expectation of what a park board should be, not only in the park, but all over the mountain…excelling where freestyle boards aren’t supposed to. The Women’s Proto Slinger is a jibby, pow floating, huge boosting, soft flexing, trench digging oxymoron.

Leo is knowledgeable and perceptive with utmost integrity
5 /5
Leo really listened to my desires and concerns and approached my situation with a honest interest in finding a solution that will work for ME without bringing any preconceived or biased notion of what I should get based on corporate marketing goals. He was patient but adept at bringing the train back to the rails when I strayed from the track -- he was able drive us to a solution to the original problem that we were trying to solve. And this was despite me getting super amped at one point about a very wide-ski (and more expensive) solution that would have netted him a higher commission but that would not have worked for my initially stated goals. Leo also has an attention to detail, noting even the asides of a conversation to get the best possible solution. He also pays attention to the ostensibly less important issues -- but issues that in actuality are more important -- such as helmet fit and safety features. Finally, you can tell that Leo really enjoys what he does and believes in his mission, which makes working with him an absolute pleasure. He brings with him fun sense of humor and inspires confidence in you that you've come to the best possible solution. A+ Leo! Thanks a bunch.

Jay was incredibly helpful
5 /5
When I started looking for my first real snowboard setup, Jay was just the help I needed. I tell you we probably looked through all of curated's snowboard collection, twice over. He was super patient with me trying to decide on a board, even after changing the size I was after halway through. Jay was a ton of fun to talk with through the process and just really made things great with a lot of insight. Couldn't be happier with the help he gave me!

Patrick is the bee’s knees
5 /5
Super friendly and helpful, Patrick is a very relatable personality to have help do you shopping. I haven’t snowboarded in about 15 years but he listened to my experience and curated some fine pieces of gear for me to run with next season. He made sure to include a wide portfolio of items that I may be interested in, from the bargain pieces to the higher-end. The best part of my experience with Patrick was that he always tried to recommend something that was on sale that fit my profile of what I was shopping for. That was extremely appreciated— thanks again for everything Patrick! 🏂

Luke gave me the confidence to own my first set of skis! I have been hesitant to own, always preferring to bring my boots and rent my skis, but I have always wondered if I shouldn't take the plunge and try ownership. Luke helped me find a good fit for my needs, even though I had no idea what that was, and he even helped me find something at a really great price point! He is friendly and knowledgeable. Curated is a great service, especially for newbies like myself!

Matthew is Amazing!
5 /5
Matthew had helped me made this purchase very easy. He's so knowledgeable and listens to what you need. I was pushing back-and-forth and buying my first gear to snowboard, but then Matthew has always been an expert paired to me and he never stopped replying. Been in contact with him for a few months and today. I finally committed on buying my first gear. Been reaching out with Matthew. Maybe this is my fourth time and he always reply nicely And made me feel comfortable whenever I ask questions truly and highly recommended. If you need an expert to help you buy your snowboard gears.

5 /5
I casually inquired about skis with Nate after getting tired of my rentals. Within 10 minutes, he had found me a pair with bindings that would beat the cost of renting in less than 2 years. Nate had all the answers to my questions about "Why this ski and not that ski?" and made me feel super confident in my purchase.
