kindred custom snowboards

Handmade on Vancouver Island

We, Angie and Evan, design and build Kindred Custom Snowboards together. We embarked on this creative journey to feed our passion for The Ride - not just the act of sliding on snow, but the entire alpine experience. It's an experience that connects us to our kin: the people with whom we share a joy for powder, park features, and the beauty of mountains.

Each board is a complementary brew of art and craftsmanship. Kindred Custom Snowboards enhance everything that you already—or ever hope to—love about The Ride.

wood

We build Kindred Custom Snowboards in-house from start to finish. We manufacture our cores using carefully selected Vancouver Island douglas fir and yellow cypress.

Sidewall options include bamboo and stunning hardwoods from around the world. We thank the forests for the playful liveliness of each board.

technology

We employ a blend of traditional handiwork interwoven with progressive technologies.

To personalize board flex and response we include carbon fibre to match the style of even the most critical rider.

We operate a CNC router for enhanced precision at various build stages.

We use a pine-based resin system that provides superior performance at a lower environmental impact.

art

We practice the old-world craft of marquetry to create exquisite one-of-a-kind topsheets. By combining hand cutting, CNC drag knife, and wood burning we accent the woodgrain with personalized design details.

Whether it features a landscape or your company's logo, your Kindred Custom is a functional work of art that reflects the rider.

We build custom snowboards,
splitboards, and skis year-round
at the foot of Mount Washington
in the beautiful Comox Valley, Canada.
