time there was a very grumpy man. He worked in a job he hated, working for 'the man' doing meaningless tasks that crushed his soul and soured his mood. He left his job, packed his bags and travelled across the Atlantic in search of mountains covered in the freshest snow. For months he snowboarded every day, loving being in the mountains and loving his life. But, all good things must come to an end. With tears in his eyes and a pain in his heart he returned to his homeland. With no work and little money a decision had to be made. To go back to work for the corporate monster was not a possibility this enlightened man could face, and so with balls of steel (and a ridiculously supportive wife) he sold his house, moved in with his parents and used the money to build his dream - a Snowboard Shop where he could stock his favourite brands and meet likeminded snowboarders.
The result? Ten winters later and we're still going strong, We are an independently owned and run snowboard shop that stocks rad brands at decent prices. ALL of the staff are snowboarders so we have first hand experience in the equipment we stock and extensive knowledge about what could work best for your next trip to the mountains.
You could buy online at thesnowboardshop.co.uk but if you're close enough, we'd love to meet you in the shop, talk snowboarding and have a cuppa
An ex-seasonnaire, Darren has been shredding for 20 years. Being the 'Big Boss' he is the most powerful and feared member of The Snowboard Shop Team. He spends most of his day making the website pretty and shouting out that he needs more tea.
Adam has been riding for over 20 years. Although he is 'Little Boss' sometimes he thinks he is in charge of the whole shabang. He is in charge of the shop in Fleet and does the majority of the buying. He is also supreme lord over the Shop Monkeys.
Sam has just come back from completing an Instructor course in Banff. He has been riding for 8 years and he's getting better. He kills it on the shop floor as he knows his technical shizzle and is pretty friendly to most people who come in.
Although Will Skis for GB he is also pretty tasty on a Snowboard. His day is consumed helping customers in the shop, packing internet orders and making tea for Big and Little Boss.
