How to support snowboard development?
First snowboard profile - the traditional camber - came from ski, but since then some snowboard brands developed a lot more types of profiles as well as edge technologies (not to speak about the influence snowboard had on ski itself, we only want to inform you about snowboard gear) that since then, some of them, have been adopted by the ski industry. This means that some snowboard brands invest time and resources in developing the sport and that they succeed in doing it. There would be no rocker profiles if it wasn't for them. Other brands, that mainly sell skis or other stuff, just pick knowledge from the first ones (wich we call "true" snowboard brands) to build some boards and flip them for a profit through their already existing publicity and distribution channels. This brands won´t invest in developing snowboard, they may thoug get you lower prices, or not.
So if you want to help your favorite sport evolve and have more and more fun with it, a great way of doing it is by supporting "true" snowboard brands and shops (mostly local specialized shops that only, or mainly, sell "true" snowboard brands).
How can you know who is who?
Not easy if you don't know the brands, but don't worry, soon we will have that info available. Stay sharp.

Hi, my name is João Branquinho. I'm developing this informative website and a product to make our lives (even) better when at the mountains, and I teach snowboard. The website and the product are currently being funded by the lessons I teach, so any contribution will accelerate their growth by allowing me to 1-get programmers for the site 2- producing bigger batches of my product and give you a lower price. Thanks!
