The Prime snowboard offers a ride so comfortable and effortless that you will progress past the learning curve like a future pro. The progression-friendly Directional Shape allows riders of all skill levels to drop into the unknown confidently, and the Flat-Out Rocker's catch-free ride allows riders to learn new tricks in the park day after day with less chance of catching your edge. The Prime is built for riders who want to skip through the basics and get after it on a board that will progress with them yearly.

My boyfriend and I got my best friend a Nitro Prime a couple years back when he was just starting out and it was perfect. The flat to rocker profile makes it super easy to turn, press and also very forgiving on icy terrain. The downside of the flat to rocker profile is the lack of energy, so it becomes... Read more

Great Beginner Board

Posted on Dec 27, 2023
Got this for my teenage son. He has been out with me 6-7 times, and this is his first owned deck. He wanted something he could continue to learn on but not grow out of too fast. He has one day on it so far. Matched with rambler bindings and DC phase boots. They all seem to be balance well. It is fairly catch free. Has good pop, and generally enhanced his confidence. The only small gripe (and I mean small) is the top sheet has a softer/matte finish. Snow does stick to it more than glossy finishes. Sprayed it with rain-x for the next trip out.

Nate was super knowledgeable & friendly!
5 /5
Nothing but great things to say about Nate! He was SO responsive and offered many suggestion in my price point. He tailored my ski equipment based on my body needs. He knew things I’ve never even thought about, like my high arches and how that would impact boot selection. We had a blast picking out my skis and he was so patient as I went back and forth many times. I recommend everyone work with Nate!

I haven’t skied in 15 years. Tyler helped me understand the new technology and products available. He knew I wasn’t in the market to buy too much equipment but still steered me towards gear that would work best for me to rent.

Not only did he help me pick exactly what would best suit me, but also helped me understand the differences in gear and why he picked these options for me. I could not have had a better experience and could not have asked for someone better to help me. Thanks a lot Spencer.

Went through my first Curated purchase process, and was really surprised about how helpful Nate was in helping me select my new gear. He was friendly, asked the right questions, and and answered everything from me. He knew all the products he recommended, and let me know about some important differences in equipment that I needed to know before making my purchase. He also kept me under budget, which was extra awesome.

Brett was able to quickly put together a few ski selections for me within just a couple of minutes. It was difficult to pick one because they were all great suggestions! He has tons of knowledge and even has personal experience with a lot of the gear he recommends. He's also mindful about budget and I didn't feel pressured to fork out tons of money for something I didn't think I could afford. Awesome curator!

Mark won't steer you wrong!
5 /5
This is the second year in a row I've come to curated to recommend me a pair of skis. Last year, I submitted for all mountain skis with a focus on carving and Mark recommended me a pair of Atomic Maverick 95ti 172. I've absolutely loved them. Mark nailed it on the head with these as I was easily able to accomplish my carving goals for that season. He/She/They provided quick responses, detailed technical explanations when asked, and an overwhelmingly pleasant experience. This year, I submitted for a freestyle ski and they paired me with Mark again! I'm not sure if curated does that by design but it was very convenient as I had access to our chat history from last year to look at the previous discussions we had. This time, Mark recommended a pair of Armada ARV 94 171. Once again, he/she/they provided quick feedback and solid technical advice about ski length and binding mounting positions. I have purchased these skis for next season so I have yet to try them, but many other reviews seem to agree with Mark's recommendation. I will return by the end to next season to document my experience, but I have full confidence in Mark's recommendation of these skis. Mark won't steer you wrong!
