Want something unique?
At Aotea Shapes we build every board individually tailoring it to the rider. Sometimes riders have unique requirements that off the shelf boards cant deliver like large or small feet at other times they just want something that they aren't going to see three of in the lift queue.
Bespoke snowboards designed with the rider in mind - Think of it like your own Signature Model
All our commissioned custom snowboards and splitboards start with a dream. Whether you have that trip of a lifetime coming up or you've always wanted something a little special, the dream is where it begins
We now begin the build. We use locally sourced and industry standard components:
NZ grown poplar timber cores
NZ native and exotic timber veneers
Durasurf 4000 sintered base material
Hardened steel 2.2mm edges
2k High Gloss Urethane topcoat
Triax fibreglass with selective carbonfibre or basalt reinforcement
Once the board has been pressed the aesthetic steps begin. We can customise many aspects of your new board such as custom Laser engraving, Paua Inlays, and custom veneer marquetry work. All boards are then 2 pack polyurthane coated and bases are stone ground to provide great structure then infrared waxed before shipping.
