Got to demo Proto Synthesis. Amazing board. Great in all conditions. Very playful board. Spent about half the time on it practicing switch.

Magic carpet

I think it and this board DOES IT! Like a magic carpet…..does everything well. Stable but wants carve. Can go fast, but good in the pow. No need to ride any other board…nuf said!

Nico rocked!
5 /5
Nico helped me tackle the overwhelming and vast realm of purchasing my first ski setup. He was super knowledgeable and took the time to learn about me. The gear he picked out for me really catered towards what I told him I liked to do on the mountain as well as my budget restrictions. All in all great experience and really helped me get over the hump of investing in my own gear!

I finished a season snowboarding in Snoqualmie Pass and Sarah was great at offering insight about what kinds of gear were best for the terrain I'd see at my typical groomed mountains! She was very responsive to all of my questions and it felt like I was asking a friend for advice rather than a sales pitcher. I feel grateful to have matched with a knowledgeable local and will look to get more recommendations from her. It is my first time buying snowboarding gear and Curated had just what I needed - price match included!

He listened to me & answered all my questions & made suggestions according to my ski style, ability & needs. I will deff be a returning customer! Eric knows his stuff & is very personable.

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.

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.
